Bottle. Color was a crisp amber with a small head. Aroma was funky and strange. Flavor was crisp, apple, sweet, and tart. First of the style.

Bottle; poured a bog water brown. Aroma of funk, farmhouse, yeast, apple and sugar. Fairly sweet up front giving way to apples and crystal sugar. Touch of funkiness and tartness throughout and in the finish especially. Crisp and refreshing. Quite good.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty funky, pretty unusual to me, but I liked it. Sweet, sour, sticky palate and feel is the strength. Weakness is the bizarre barnyard nose that takes some getting used to. Odd but interesting flat and auburn color, light head on top, no lacing. Got it in Erie at Wegmans.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is one weird beer.
It has a slightly hazy red color and a semi-large but quickly disappearing head. There is also high carbonation present. The aroma is sweet and citrusy with some hops noticeable. Nothing bad yet. So, now the taste. I didnít know whether itís a cider, freshly made wine, or a homemade bear gone bad. Itís sweet and really sour at the same time, plus there is too much carbonation here. Not the best combo really.

Bottom Line: thought I was drinking a cider, and Iím not a cider fan. Cloudy with sediment, smells very sweet. Tart finish. Wouldnít drink it often.

Hazy, copper color with minimal, short lasting head. Aroma of yeasts and fruits. Doesnít have bitterness. Taste is fruity and sweet, medium sourness. Flat carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle with crown seal...and cork!? Bb 30jan2015
Pours an interestingly coloured clear copper beer with small but tight persistent white cap.
Restrained aroma. Nice bit of cheesy funk, typical of a Lindemans, hay, cereals, faint barnyard without the horse. Some dried fruits and burnt sugar.
Restrained carbonation...at least in lambic terms...some viscosity to it but still light bodied, appreciable acidity.
Burnt toffee sweetness carries through the palate, Notes of dried fig, raisin and grainy malt along the way. Low bitterness to finish, still comes out somewhat sweet.
Very different to anything Iíve come across. Almost reminiscent of an old sweet white wine. Bit of a stepping stone up to serious lambic.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with robust head, which quickly remains as a ring. The aroma is of bubble gum and champagne. The taste is sour and crispy. A lot of sweetness. No hoppiness. Intensive aroma. No unpleasant notes. Well crafted. Sour finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprisingly tart and sweet at the same time. Almost like a pungent cherry beer because of itís fruity bright taste. Nice solid amber colour with a light frothy head that dissolves quickly.
I pick up on some sour herby notes, that I imagine could put some people off. But it does taste like beer either way and I like it.
Fun gimmick with the bottle cap concealing a cork
