8 oz. on draft at Jester King on 11/23/14. As lambics go, I'm not sure how you can do much better. Light purple, a surprisingly long lived head (for the style), a hint of berries in the aroma. The taste and mouthfeel are what make this, though. Tart with a bit of residual sugar. The fruit is subtle but present. Fine carbonation and light bodied. It finishes with a fair amount of bitterness, making it a nice counterpoint to the start and middle.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep red. Small off white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Light currant. Wood. Yogurty.

Taste - Berry fruit that builds into a very distinct black currant flavor. Like a black currant jam without the sweetness. Very woody. Less yogurt than the nose.

Mouthfeel - Dry and woody. Moderate sourness. Well carbonated.

Overall - The woodiness is intense. The currant flavor is pretty nice, but not enough to truly elevate the beer.
