Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. Back label says 112812 Lot
A- Pours an orangeish amber color with a 1/4 inch beige head that doesn't retain long before subsiding to a bubbly ring around the edge of the glass with a patch of wispy surface foam in the center. Thin semi-resilient lacing cascades down the glass.
S- Medium-high sour smell brings about notes of cherry and mild vinegar. Moderate amount of rye is detected after a few short sharp sniffs.
T- Taste is more sour than the aroma lets on. Acidity is pretty high and overpowers the mild fruit notes. Alcohol is well concealed but still is a sipper due to the intense amount of lactic acid.
M- Very dry with a pucker that's nearing intense. Medium carbonation with a light-to-medium body. From the last pour when the sediment is introduced, the feel becomes more chalky.
O- Just a tad too sour for my taste, although it does remind me of a more fruit-forward sour like a Flanders Red. I also was hoping for more rye in the flavor. Still, quite drinkable and appropriate for the style.

Shared with JLindros, reviewed from notes.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a murky grayish orange coppery hue with a one finger head that fades to leave a dense blanket and sticky lacing. Another ugly duckling beer!
S - OOhhh yeah. Aromas of faint, dusty wood and light faint rye on the finish. Everything else is just plain juicy. Gummy peach candy, sweet peach jam, skins, malty sweetness, and perhaps, oddly enough, some faint strawberry notes!
T - Taste is super, super sour. Light rye spice, barrel wood notes, sour yeast strains...brettlambicus notes. Light juicy fruit notes. Tasty, tart, juicy peaches and even some more of those strawberry notes.
M - Mouthfeel is super tart and delicious. Very drinkable.
O - Overall, this was a damn good beer, glad I have more of these in the cellar.
