I really liked it, been seeking this style for awhile also. Yeasty, notes of cherry and strawberry... Sweet and sugary, also like a hef, and a bit sour as well though it should not make anybody pucker.

robinvboyer (2875) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Very sweet sugary aroma with light barnyard funk aromas. Carb and mouth feel are perfect, if anything the carb is a tad low. The finish is wet hay, touches of funk and sweet sugars. Nice.

Arczir (70) - POLAND - APR 11, 2014
Tap at House of Beer, Cracow.
Pours cloudy amber with small head. Great lacing though. Fruity in aroma; lemons, raspberries. Some funky and sugary notes. Very drinkable and quite tasty; fruity (raspberry, strawberry) with some sweetness coming right before dry finish. Pretty sweet.

Davhgbrew (882) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma is fruity and slightly musty. Very light and subtle texture on the tongue with a mild effervescent carbonation. Sweet and sour cherry and raspberry with a crisp light dry finish. Tastes like cranberry juice with seltzer water. Some oak like barrel aging flavors with a hint of unmalted wheat possibly. Sweet beer that would compliment many light meals, but definitely not a session brew..A little too sweet for multiple offerings.

It was a multi-step process to get the beer in a glass. First you peel off the silver foil protecting the neck of the bottle. Then you pop the cap. And then you pry the cork off. (That is something that I still have yet to master gracefully). Once open it pours an amber orange color with little to no head to it. The initial aroma is simple syrup to me. Also a touch of apple cider Very sweet smelling. The taste is also extremely sweet. But it is counteracted by a bubbly character and a slight bitterness at the back of the finish. There is a slight hint of tartness tucked into as well. But overall this is not that far removed from an apple cider that uses a more sugary varietal of apple.

tricksta_p (622) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
Aroma of vinegar, green apples, candy sugar. Flavour is sugary sweetness and tartness. I prefer my Lambic sour and found the added sugar a huge detriment. Perhaps Iím just not a fan of this style.

ScipioA (211) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours out a maroon/brown/purple/red that seems to shift with the light. Thick off-white head that sicks around forever. Funky, herbal, and spicy aromas. Itís got a big sugar presence that reminds me of eating straight-up powdered cider with a spoon (donít knock it, awesome camping snack). The sugar poured into this provides a delicious counterpoint to the tart and funk. Really smooth and thick mouthfeel. Lingering tangy aftertaste is quite pleasant. Refreshing, tasty, and relatively cheap for the style.

Hazy copper amber color with small head. Aroma is sour, fruits. Flavor is sour but also sweet, fruity.. Not bad.

hens (480) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2014
0.37.5L bottle. Clear copper color, no head. Apple wine aroma. Sweet apple cider taste mainly. Old rotten wood, light caramel, sweet Sultan grape, and old wood again. To much sweetness for me, but very interesting and drinkable also.
