look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From a 375ml bottle my brother picked up in Belgium, bottled 11-27-2014.

Appearance is a hazy, pink-red color, capped by a thin pink head that has a mild amount of retention with low lacing.

Smells are of cherry fruits and white grapes.

On first sip, I get a very prickly mouthfeel from the full carbonation. Then flavors of cherry become apparent, both fruit and a bit sour. The finish is quite dry.

Overall a splendid lambic I am glad to have tried!

Appearance-color was a nice ruby, poured a half finger of fizzy head that dissipated immediately, lots of soda-like carbonation within the beer itself.

smell-Tart cherries, hay, unidentifiable, grape-lie sourness.

Taste- very clean upfront, sleigh hint of cherries and plums, followed by lip puckering tartness, slightly earthy in the finish.

Feel-thin, very carbonated, finishes surprisingly dry.

Overall- a nice beer, i liked that the fruitiness was subtle, man this beer is sour. worth trying but would not seek out again.

Splendid Belgian funk mixed with some ripe, tart cherries, lemon zest, hay, and restrained sourness.
