Served from a bottle at Penny Blue during their "Sourfest" event at Good Beer Week 2013.
Pours a cloudy pink with orange twinges at the edges. Head forms in a fine ring, but mostly the head is composed of chunky floaties at the top of the beer. Specks of solid lace. Fine body, not much carbonation. It looks OK, but not great: especially the floaties.
Definite raspberry lambic nose. Crisp fruit character, minimal sweetness, some funk, lactic acid and other acidity, and a little bit of rubber or plastic. There's also a slight hint of bread coming through and a noticeable yeasty tone. That's a bit disappointing, but otherwise, it's pretty good.
Light acid on the entry, before sweeter fruit characters and the raspberry come through. By the back, though, there's a really big bready, yeasty character which roars up through the centre of the palate. Finish is a little bitter and quite dry, with a touch of acidity to pucker the mouth somewhat. Some lactic tones on the finish and some aspirin character. Hmm.
Feel is pretty good. Light, but crisp and sour.
This is a beer with many flaws, but it has some decent things to offer as well. The yeasty character is unpleasant and near ruins the beer. But the raspberry character is done well, and the lambic sourness adds some authenticity to it. But I was hoping that Bright would do better.
