Batch 3. Huge thanks out to Emma for sharing an all-time want. Full review done over the weekend.

A- Split into four glasses with a murky, red-brown body. Frothy and foamy off-white head forms to a half finger or so with pretty good retention. A large ring and cloud remains atop the beer. Lacing is pretty hard to come by.

S- Fruity lambic feel in an insanely strong aroma. The Flanders Brown Ale feel is quite nice with some acetic and dried fruit feel. Grapes, super funky Brett, barnyard and a ton of lactic lemony tartness.

T- Complexity is massive in the flavor and this beer really encompasses a large umbrella of things. Most obvious is the intense sourness, just a battering of cheek puckering lactic lemony sour. Brett funk melds in with barnyard, sour cherry and a tiny bit of band aid. Vinous oak, sour grapes, fruit pits, figs, green apples, strawberry and Balsamic vinegar all come to mind.

MF- Light end and superbly dried out body. Carbonation at a high level and the texture is somewhat fizzy and silky like a Lambic. Sourness coats the taste buds and lingers, almost burns.

Superb blend of Flanders vinegar, fruit Lambic and Brett funky feels. One of the most sour brews I can think of in recent memory. Feels like a great mix of a Lambic and a Flanders Bruin.

Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but slightly one dimension in its sourness.
