look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
12.7 ounce corked and caged bottle shared by Sasha - thanks. Best before date: 1/29/23.
A: Pours a hazy peachy orangish with a thin (1/4-inch) white head which fades quickly and leaves a few spots of lace.
N: Funky barnyard next to fruity ripe plums.
T: Fruity, moderate sourness, some wheat, and that barnyard yeast.
M: Light body and light carbonation. Dry, musty and dusty sour finish.
O: Nice tartness and bright fruit overtones.

4.16/5 rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: hazy tangerine-red colored ale with but a brief bubbling at the surface off the pour; naught but a slim wisp of film rimmed the edge of the ale
S: fruity and tart - apples, vinegar, plum, and lemon; hints of oak
T: right in stride, brings lots of tart fruit and subtle plum to the tongue; tart apples and drying lemons, dry oakiness
M: slick, slim, and tangy; refreshing, light; acidic tingle and pucker
O: I tried to be moderate here, but this seems to be an ale on top of its style - full of tangy tart fruits, it is clean, fresh, and bright. I'm sure fans of the style know all this - and if you're ready to take on the style, or sour ales in general - this is a great place to start.
This is my first fruit lambic, and I can appreciate that it is an outstanding ale, but didn't feel comfortable going higher in my scores considering my lack of reference points within the style. I don't know that lambics or fruity or sour beers will ever be a go-to for me, but I have really enjoyed them when I've had them. Certainly an enjoyable and easy drinking ale that fans of the style must really dig.
