3.45/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I am not a big drinker of lambics or geuzes; I tried to somewhat score for the style.
Poured into a fluted glass.

Appearance: A lovely pink with tints of orange. Tons of little bubbles shooting up to the surface, especially in the middle.

Smell: First I smell raspberries, followed by sourness, and a bit of barnyark funk in the background.

Taste: The raspberry flavor takes a major backseat. Starts off with a mouth-puckering sourness, followed by the barnyard must. There is a hint of raspberries and even a little sweetness for an instant somewhere in the middle. The sourness is always in the background, and lingers for a bit afterwards, but I didn't taste too much in the finish of this beer.

Mouthfeel: Seems appropriate for the style and taste. I certainly wouldn't want this to be anymore viscous. The high level of carbonation is definitely a plus with the flavors I am getting.

Drinkability: With the low alcohol content and light body, I could have one or two more of these. I can't give it higher than a 4, however, as it really is quite sour.

This was rather different than the Lindemann's and St. Louis lambics I've had. Much more sour and funky; it seemed like a cross between a lambic and a gueze, from what I know of the styles.

I'm glad I tried something from this highly-regarded brewery, but this type of beer is not my cup of tea (or beer) right now.
