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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 vintage.

Appearance - Pale hazy body. Not a lot of head. Thin white collar.

Smell - Lemony acidic aroma. Malty. A little grassy.

Taste - Very malty. Lemony sourness that builds. Puckering in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy for a sour. Malty. Pretty sour in the finish.

Overall - Not a complex flavor, but it's decent.

4.19/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Bright golden yellow, no head. very bright.

S: Honey, tangarine with a dry white wine quality to it (kind of like a dry Riesling). Pungent acidic lemon with a crisp tartness. Young cherries and tart grape. inviting.

T: From the second it touches your tongue a sour funk and tart apple take over. Reminiscent of a cider. Strong yeast presence with a hint of limestone. lemon and hay round it out. A very tart finish that is quite long. Sour cherries come in with a vanilla back end note.

M: Clean and crisp with a long finish. body seems like but the carbonation is there.

O: A nicely balanced brew. Quite enjoyable. The acid and funk is there but in no way overwhelming. /91
