4.4/5 rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: rich, deep golden hue with plenty of haze to the body and two thick fingers of creamy deep-ivory foam. Head retention is wonderful and a nice, chunky lace is left on the glass as I drink. Beautiful.
Smell: tart lactic aroma, with a little bit of a chalky, sweet malt underneath. The lambic portion of this brew really comes to the forefront in the aroma. I like it.
Taste: tartness right off the bat which is quickly ameliorated by a smoother maltiness. The dampened tartness remains through the end, though, and it really makes for a wonderful drinking experience. Some of the more subtle malty character gets lost in the tartness, but I find the overall combination to be quite tasty indeed.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation creating a big, mouth-filling creaminess. Really quite wonderful.
Overall: a very tasty, amazingly drinkable and satisfyingly creamy brew. What else could a guy want?

@ Busy Bee
Cloudy orange-amber with little head to speak of. Interesting aroma...tart funkiness coating toffee-like malts, fruit, cherries, and earthy must. I coax up some acetic notes with a deep sniff. Flavor is tart, again with a solid malt presence for balance. Caramel, cherries, spicy wood, berries, vanilla, slightly phenolic on the back end. Body leans towards the fuller side of medium, and finishes dry and tart. This started out seeming like it was going to be more of a slow-sipper, but became dangerously drinkable and refreshing.
Serving type: on-tap

4.29/5 rDev +2.4%

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a wine glass.
Golden orange. Light light head.
Smell is incredible. Bright fruit. Tart and funky. Lambic. Deep and complex.
Mmmm. Beautiful balsamic vinegar. Light fruit. Vaguely briney. The aftertaste is...wheaty? Lightly dry and vivacious. Mouthfeel is sparkling, clean, and mineraly.
Great sour. Highly recommended. God bless Hair of the Dog and the bartender at Grape & Grain who gave me this.
