2010 vintage, 22 oz bottle. Hazy straw color, with some tiny, fine bubbles emerging. Thin white head fades quickly, but stays at a nice ring.

Earthy, oaky nose. Some lemon zest and fruity notes. Funky, and a bit musty.

Only a bit tart up front. Lemon zest, with some drying oak. A bit earthy, but not overwhelming.

Light body, with some refreshing carbonation. Alcohol is a non-factor. Not overly complex, but some nice flavors. Well done from a younger American brewery, and in my home state!

Strong aroma of white grapes, vinegar, tart....makes the sides of my mouth tickle a bit at the thought of how much I may pucker at this one....smells a lot like a tart white wine really. And pours that way too. Somewhat of a straw color to it...head doesn't seem to be anything remarkable. A little cloudy.

Carbonation is noticeably low....the somewhat intense tartness hits me up front in the face. Wow. Definitely an acidic, white grape, wine-like experience here....after the tartness subsides, a note of grain does peek through, giving this more of a "beer" flavor. It isn't the most tart beer I've had, but it's certainly high on the scale.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle, 2013 vintage poured into a flute
A: Hazy very light brown with a slight yellowish/pinkish hue. Almost no head but light bubbles
S: Sour - green apple/citrus, some oak, wheat and yeast
T: Also sour, green apple initially, a hit of funk, some citrus, yeast, wheat, and choke cherry
M: Light-bodied, pleasant carbonation, a light touch of tannins
O: Quite complex and tasty. My first Lambic and I'll definitely be exploring the style more. I'll try to buy another bottle of this to try with some age
