  • Poured clear with a thick, pink-tinted frothy foam. Nice retention with some sticky, blotchy lacing.

    Aroma is not of a lambic like I had expected. Instead there is a forced cranberry aroma that seems from concentrate. There is sweet malt that is the strongest aroma. There is also something else but I can't place it, no matter, it isn't all that pleasant.

    Taste of a slight touch of sour, some sweet, cranberry. The finish feels like a squirt of juice hitting the back of my throat - juicy, juice gum comes to mind.

    Medium carbonation and light body that dries in the finish.

    There isn't much that good that I can say about this beer. This is nowhere close to being in the lambic family. Seems to be a farce on trying to sell a few beers making people believe they are in for a treat. Enjoy!
