Doesn't say anywhere on the label that it's a lambic, just that it's flavoured with apple juice, 30%. Expired yesterday.
Pours hazy golden, low sticky head.
Smells of sweet tart apples, like a sweet cider, and wheat.
Taste follows nose. Sweet apples that produce a certain tartness, like a nice cider with the medium carbonation. Belgian yeasts too, with a buttery and mildly spicy feel. Wheat and malts provide a nice background for the apples.
Surprisingly tasty and refreshing, did not expect this.

A - poured from a 330ml bottle into a goblet. It pours cloudy light orange with a thin resilient head.

S - estery malt, spiced apple

T - apple flavored malt, becomes tart with carbonation dissipation finishes with a light dry spice

M - medium body, high carbonation (thought not as carbonated as cider) and a light dry finish

D - tastes like a cider with a heavier body and less carbonation. I'd drink this over the ciders I have tried so far.

Nice, easy drinking lambic. Light yellow, cloudy like unfiltered apple juice. Aggressive head.

Very mellow, almost non-detectable scent. Wheat malt, very faint hops and an apple cripsness.

Sweet, almost sugary apple juice taste. Very faint malts, and a bit of hop bitterness. Very pleasing, but almost too tame.

Nice, gentle mouthfeel. Very nice cold and the low abv make this a great session beer.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a two finger white head that leaves very little lacing around the glass.

Smell is of cider.

Taste starts out with a crisp faint apple sweetness up front that then changes to a more mild cider like flavor that finishes with a slight green apple aftertaste. Light bodied beer with no hops or malts apparent, but not in a bad way. It's more of a cider and I really like it. I'm not usually much of a fan with fruit beers but this one is good. It's not the over powered over flavored fruit beers you usually find.

Worth a try. I'd drink it again.

I hope my cider turns out this good!
