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.

This bottle was over a year old when I bought it but that only seems to make it more tart and almost austere at times. I love a good lambic since it shows the real limit of beer at the sour end; this is a 5% ABV that is extreme in the way it takes funky yeast flavours, fino sherry flavours and at times a taste like an old Normandy Cider combined with a bracing tartness. One of the most intense lambics I have ever had but still totally drinkable and very complex for the style.
