So, this brew is so different than the SLO-ambic listed that it needsa new catagory. I spoke with David Walker at City Beer Store and he said to expect it on shelves at some point.

"Olallieberry Lambic aged 2 years in retired Firestone Union barrels. 6%"

Poured out a nice gold with half inch head. Lacing was ok.

Fruit, yeast and pale malts on the smell. Nice and tart.

Pucker up because this is sour! Sour berries and pale malts to start. Oak at the finish, but you still get a nice, tart aftertaste. Goes down smooth.

I can't wait for the bottle release!!!

Serving type: on-tap
