3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden orange colour with an average short lasting head. Aroma has plenty of cranberries and some wheat. The flavour is a little sweet and somewhat sour too, plenty of cranberry. Clean fresh finish. Far from a real Belgian lambiek beer, more like a fruit flavored beer. But I guess this one is more friendly to the regular beer drinkers than a real lambiek.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
It’s unclear, orange-red with a lasting, creamy head. The aroma has notes of cranberries, a light berry sourness, light sweetness and wheat. The flavour is sweet with notes of creanberries, wheat and a little yoghurt. It’s smooth and sweet, very far from the lambic style, and too sweet in the long run.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of cranberries, yeast and a bit of malt. Slightly hazy golden amber color with a significant white head. Starts with sweet fruit, which passes to somewhat tart cranberry. Then some clove and banana arrives. The finish is mostly tart clove and banana. Interesting.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The pour is initially bubbly and a cloudy pink with a light pink head. The head and carbonation quickly subside leaving a rather lifeless looking beer.
S: The smell is very, very strange. There are aromas of a classic witbier, such as coriander and citrus, along with a substantial wheat scent. There is also a fake cranberry smell.
T: The taste is just about the same as the aroma. A strong spice flavor mixed with a tartness (I’m guessing from the cranberry juice). The cranberry flavor, however, is rather subdued.
M: The beer is lightly carbonated and has a medium body.
D: This is a really strange beer. It’s certainly not a lambic (or anything resembling one). The combination of spice, fruit, and tartness just isn’t working out here.
