A-this is a lively lambic. Looks like their guezue. A lingering film of white head atop a clear golden brew.
S-Typical Cantillon. Funky. Notes of leather, must, and stable. Sour, not picking up rhubarb but then again rhubarb doesn't have much of an aroma.
T-like the aroma. The sourness is quite high. The rhubarb seems to give this beer some astringency. Lots of that Cantillon funk.
M-very light bodied and dry.
O-distinctly Cantillon. No problem to drink a bottle of this at the brewery. Refreshing brew.

Appearance: grapefruit colored, small head, and some good lacing.
Smell: nice sour fruit.
Taste: nice lambic sourness with a light fruit finish. 4
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy sourness.
This is a good sour. The potent nature of it makes it hard to admire all of the complexity inside it.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.
2012 vintage that is apparently a rebrew of the 2008 vintage.
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart fruit and rhubarb flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with an interesting rhubarb presence that comes through slightly better in the flavor.
