look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. No readable freshness date.

A- From a hard pour comes only a bunch of spaced out bubbles that snap, crackle and pop their way down to some sparse surface foam. The beer itself is a hazy, golden peach color. Also lacking in the lace department.

S- Crisp and fruity like all the other lambics I've had, with one difference: Funky and astringent overtones that indicate that this is gonna be a sour one.

T- And it is. A rush of tartness upfront, followed by sweet peaches and ends with a pucker that rivals other spontaneously fermented brews I've had. No doubt about it: Tangy, funky and sour.

M- Quite moist considering how tart it is. Medium-low carbonation does much to reinforce the sharp blow it gives to your palate.

O- This one ends up being a bit of a chore for me to drink but that's common with most sour beers I've had. Done well, just not my thing.

clear golden color, light white head, clean light citrus with a moderate tart/funk character. Slight pepper, moderate to high carbonation, dry finish. Great for its price.

Golden straw yellow in color with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Tart funky aroma with some sweetness behind the must. Tartness rolls around the tongue to the back of the mouth while the chalky, acidic cider flavors swell. Champagne-like mouthfeel from the carbonation. The beer is growing on me as I continue to sip.
