Lindemans Pomme Lambic
So this wine bottle was capped and corked. The cork wasn't in that great of shape but I did manage to carefully remove it without little bits breaking into the beer. There is a little story that you can read about how they brew this beer. OK. I gotta shut up since the recommended serving temperature is 38-41° F.
Tart apple and yeasty aroma, a little sharp and funky too. Granny Smith Apple flavors are big in the beginning, tart yet sweet at the same time. The acidic, cider-like flavor is soothed by a wonderfully smooth honey. Great contrast. I know it's been said before in other places, but the flavors are identical to Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers, sweet and tart but not really sour. I've eaten my share.
