4.16/5  rDev -5.2%
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.
