Served in a mason jar -
A: Looked golden orange with very small head which went away very quickly.
S: Pretty powerful and sour - lemons were present and a pretty one-dimensional, honest idea of what I was getting into.
T: I'll be honest, I loved it. It was a definite citrus-bite which was only slightly sweet. Again a bit lemony. It wasn't overpowering for me, just right.
M: A great weight for a lambic in my opinion. It was easy drinking, not to heavy, with not much carbonation.
D: I found this extremely drinkable. It would pair well with citrus dishes, salads and desserts especially well.

Served at the brewery on tap into a sampler mason jar style glass during a recent trip to Cali. Poured yellow-orange with a very very minimal (almost non-existant) off-white head. There was no lacing evident throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt and acetic acid. The flavor was of sweeet malt, sour, and a big acetic acid followthrough. It had a light feel on the palate with no carbonation. Overall this one wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Based on the acetic acid I would suspect this one is past its prime. Definitely glad I got to try this one, but that's about it.

On-tap at Bootlegger's
A: A clear golden/burnt orange color with a thin ring of white foam.
S: A primarily lactic aroma which provides a bit of lemon and green apple sourness. There isn't much in the way of funk or oak or complexity.
T: The lactic dominance continues in the flavor, though there is a touch of acetic acid to the beer which at least gives another dimension. A hint of oak and green grapes along with the citric qualities.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and only mildly dry.
D: A pretty nice "plain" sour here, but I would prefer a bit more oak/barrel contribution to it.

Lambic #2 was aged in Hungarian oak barrels for one year. Hungarian oak? Well, gotta try it. On to the beer:
Looks golden yellow, no head on top when I was given my 8 ounces. Sharp tartness in the nose with a vinegary edge raises one's hopes. The flavor is very pungent, but very, very good. Tons of sour grape flavor, acid, and tartness hit the palate and leave you in shock. There's no better way to describe it. Serious yum here.
Bootlegger's sours are good to really good. Lambic #2 is awesomely good. I love the way this beer came out, and hopefully I can get reacquainted with it later.

From a 22 oz. hand bottle,
A: Pours a medium gold with a very light head, OK look for a lambic.
S: Noticable funk, lemons, wheat.
T: Mix of goat cheese upfront with some cracked wheat bready flavour to finish. Minor new oak character.
M: Mild to moderate acid, very light carbonation. A tad flabby.
D: This is a good beer, nowhere near the mind-blowing experience of Lambic #4, but I'm glad to try it and hope to try the others in the series.
