750 ml poured into a tulip glass.

A- a beautiful deep intense red with a tall pink head that keeps a thick outside lace. A truly beautiful looking ale.

S- seeet cherries, raspberries, and peaches. A very rich funk that instantly makes your cheeks pucker. There is also a slight smell of cough medicine but not as poignant.

T- follows the nose exactly. The taste is sweet and sour. Sweet cherries and raspberries. Then the sour sits in. Completely taking over the taste buds. The medicinal taste is definitely present on the back end but it isn't bad.

M- sour as hell! Probably the most sour beer I've had. Full bodied as well.

O- a delicious beer. Sweet and sour and overall just amazibg beer. Can't think of anything that would make it better for the style.

From a 750 ml bottle to a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces very little head; just a thin pink cap that fades quickly to a collar. The beer is raspberry in color and slightly cloudy. Nothing spectacular to look at, but it suits the style.

S-The aroma on this older (2011) bottle is subdued compared to some lambics, but I still smell a good bit of sour cherry. Other scents include champagne, cider vinegar, and a light dose of earthy, barnyard funk. Acidity is moderate to low for the style.

T-The taste is flush with clean acidity, as well as some mostly-dry oaky funk, and more of that lovely sweet/sour cherry taste. It is very balanced and impresses with its focus rather than outright sourness or fruit flavors.

M-The feel is slightly heavier than some lambic style beers with an assertive but smooth carbonation that really compliments the flavor. Perhaps the best "feeling" lambic I have ever had.

O-What a great beer. It sounds stupid, but the smell and flavor are so simple and clean that the beer almost becomes more complex as I try to locate all the little subtle aromas and nuances that make this beer taste so good. Unlike some true Belgian lambics, I found this beer to be approachable, as well, i.e., not hugely sour or funky or hard to appreciate. The mouthfeel is also nearly perfect for the style.
