On tap at the Federal Taphouse in Lancaster PA. Flat appearance with the fruit and sour hitting the nose. A lot of bang in the taste with pucker to the end that has you going right back for another sip. Outstanding sour that I will hope to sample again someday. (261 characters)

On tap at Bangers & Lace, quick review from written notes.

Murky light reddish brown color, thin film of foam across the surface, minimal spotty lace.

Unique aroma, slightly acetic, sharp apple cider vinegar. Definitely more Flanders inspired though the brewer calls it a lambic.

Very tart and puckering, verging on sour, definitely a big cider vinegar component, almost one note, though it's pleasant enough. Dry finish, light carbonation, acetic. Kicks the salivary glands into overdrive, made a good apertif for a few snacks.

Overall this is closer to an unblended Oud Bruin or something, nothing close to traditional Belgian lambic, but enjoyable in its own right. (673 characters)

Note: Coolship #3

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden amber in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint honey + medium yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of unripe berries, white grapes, apple cider vinegar, and lemon citrus. Light to moderate amounts of tartness in the aroma.

T: Overall this beer has light to moderate amount of sourness with moderate flavors of unripe berries and white grapes. There is a light flavor of tart lemon citrus and moderate flavors of apple cider vinegar. Minimal amount of bitterness present which fade away almost instantly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: This beer is quite approachable for someone not too into sours - and is the first "English Lambic" that I have come across. Nice complexity to the flavors and aromas of this beer and pretty easy to drink. Paired nicely with my lunch. (1,210 characters)
