3.98/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz capped and corked bottle (bottled 17 May 2013) poured into a Lindeman's flute. Slow pour to keep the sediment behind.

Appearance: Clear coppery red with a thin white head on top. Some occasional small islands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Raspberries, hint of fresh picked sweet berries, some mustiness. As it warms up there is some sweet malt under it all.

Taste: Very Tart! Raspberries, fresh squeezed lemon juice, just a hint of wood. Some bready malt in there, but it is fleeting. Crisp and sharp tartness at the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: Dry, airy carbonation, acidic juice attack on the teeth briefly and then its gone.

Overall / Drinkability: I'm going to hit drinkability first - I can finish a bottle but I wish I had paired it with a fruity dessert. One per night is enough. Overall, a mouth-puckering one of a kind beer, but I think I'm still acquiring the taste of sours and lambics. An interesting slow-sipper but I was not expecting this much tartness. Any more tart and it would not be drinkable, like it is calibrated to be right at the edge of tolerance to push you to a new taste, but not push you over the edge into disgust and inability to finish it. So I'll list this one as my current high limit on tart lambics I can tolerate and finish. A good milestone in my continuing exploration of beer.
