4.09/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks for sharing Matt! 2010 vintage.

(A)- Pours a hazed golden yellow color. Some subtle white bubbles formed.

(S)- Quite dry but with a vibrant acidity. It oozes sour lemon head/peel. great yeasty bits amidst a potent sourness overall. Quite awesome for me.

(T)- Not as sour as the aroma foretold, but it is balanced nicely. Some wheat-like yeasty bread meets some acidic lemon rind at the end.

(M)- A spritzy carbonation level meets a light but zesty acidic lemon citrus overall.

(O)- It is definitely a successful lambic from the states. Always like to see more breweries around here try their hand at my favorite styles.

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

1 PINT 9.4 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a flute
2012 vintage

A - It is a golden color with straw highlights. I got very little off-white head.

S - The aroma is sour with some dank basement. I get some green apple and pear.

T - The taste is tart and vinous. It is acidic. The taste is not as intense as the smell. The sourness doesn't really linger in the aftertaste.

M - Sticky and moderate.

O - This is my first unblended lambic. I enjoy the sourness of the beer, but I would like more. With no experience with Belgian lambics, I am eager to try more. I like this one.
