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

Brew Year: 2011 Bottle Year: 2013

Appearance: Pours out with a slightly hazy golden color; compared to others, the head bubbled up to an inch of foam and leaves very leggy lacing for a low carbonation beer

Smell: Not all about the funk here though there is plenty of horseblanket to go around; there is also a floral, apple/strawberry tone that adds a nice dimension

Taste: Starts out with yeasty bread, green apple and strawberry fruit; by the mid-palate, the lactic tartness builds and, after the swallow, the funk arrives; there is a bit of surprising sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: There aren't too many reviews that are clearly identified as being from this brew year and, as the source of each bottling is different it is hard to compare what I tasted to others; I was very pleasantly surprised, however, both by the carbonation and the flavor; this is not the tartest or the funkiest of lambics, but it does have a nice balance and a very interesting combination of flavors
