look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
2011 bottle, shared at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury. Poured into a snifter.
Pour: A mostly clear yellow orange, with a finger of fizzy white head. The head somehow manages to hang around for most of the glass, and leaves a little lacing.
Smell: Big funky Cantillon lambic base up front, followed by some white grape must and oak. Lots of lactic character, and some light breadyness.
Taste: Big lactic white grapes up front, and some sour lemon juice. Quite a bit of barnyard funk, and some bready sweetness. Finishes sour with lactic lemons and grapes.
Mouthfeel: Really nice prickly sourness, and the carb is perfect. Not puckering at all. Really drinkable.
Overall: I didn't think I'd like this more than St. Lam, and I definitely do. Fantastic beer.
Serving type: bottle
