SOUR

Great sour beer, one to be shared.

Pours a nice reddish black beer. Has very little bubbles, yet it is carbonated. Smell is of berries, cherries, etc. Taste is very tart, vinegary. It is not a thick beer, it is medium bodied. Taste remains in your mouth, as well as aroma.

750ml bottle served in a Mort Subite chalice.

Bottle date 25/04/2011

A: First of all, beautiful bottle art. Corked 750ml bottle. Pours a dark rose color forming a medium but very fizzy and noisy big bubbled head leaving practically no lacings in the glass

S: Very fruity. Strong notes of cherry juice and apple vinegar. Funky and sour. A bit metallic. Light notes of sweet malts. A bit earthy. Leather. Earthy yeasts

T: Slight sweet upfront. Becoming suddenly quite dry and funky. Strong notes of apple vinegar, and cherry juice. Metallic. A bit earthy in the end

M: Very light and watery body. Medium carbonation. Sour and fruity aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. State of art Lambic beer

2011 vintage, C&C 750ml. Teku glass.

A: Pours crimson with a half finger of attractive, pink-tinted foam, receding moderately soon to a thick ring. Minimal lacing but very good retention.

S: Gorgeous aroma of cherry, red wine, light funk, a bit of grassiness, and dry cinnamon toast.

T: Cherry and funk meld well, with a light tartness building to more of a moderate sourness. A nice red wine character, with light oak in the background. Fairly dry.

M: Medium body and medium light carbonation.

O: Phenomenal flavors and highly drinkable. The cherry is light but still noticeable, and the light to moderate tartness makes this highly drinkable and a good pairing with food. If only this were widely available, I could see drinking this all summer long.
