This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated and leaves no lacing. Light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell starts off with a sharp sweet to acidic tart cherries, light lemon and some citrus rind bitterness roll into the blend. The taste was sweet with a sticky sour fruit. Bitterness tries to pummel but slides into blend nicely. There’s no aftertaste but has a quick sweet to sour citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly sharp sticky citrus harshness hitting my tongue. It makes for a great session. Overall, what a wonderful lambic, fully sour and quaint enough to show wonderful flavor all around.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Look - Pours a hazy light orange, three fingers of rocky white head, great retention, no lacing, loads of carbonation.
Aroma - Green apple, hay, a bit earthy.
Taste - Crab apple, sparkling cider, sharp sour note, menthol, thin crackery malt, dry woody note that reminds me of cedar wrapped cigars, puckery finish.
Feel - Light bodied, effervescent, sharp, supremely dry.

Overall - Big fan of the wood character in this. Springtime in a bottle.

Pours a pale yellow colour, with a big, creamy head that never fades. Bubbles are coming up all the while. Aroma of grapes, ripened fruits, sherry wine, wood.Medium body, creamy and sour texture. Carbonation is great. Taste of grapes, citrics, fruits, wood, sherry wine. Sour finish.
