On handpump at Teresa's Next Door during their 2011 sour event. I believe this is the most recent batch available. Drank from a wine glass.

A: Bright clear golden color pouring a frothy white head which clears into a small ring around the glass. Some nice lacing as well. Beautiful.

S: Aroma starts with some interesting fruit aromas including: chardonnay grapes, apricot, bitter orange, and other various citrus fruits. There is also a nice leathery, earthy character produced form the Brett. This is not an aroma I would describe as 'Barnyard'. Relatively clean and more focused the fruity earthy characteristics. Not too much acid on the nose either. Extremely complex and outstanding!

T: The fruity notes on the nose translate into the flavor as well. Although this is an apricot lambic, chardonnay is the strongest characteristic I get. The acid is much more pronounced in the flavor of the beer including strong tangerine notes. The finish is puckering and dry with light earth, leather, and oak flavors. Like no other lambic I have ever tried. More comparable to Russian River Temptation.

M: Nice medium body with strong champagne carbonation with a nice prickly, puckering effect. Desirable tannic, drying qualities in the finish. The carbonation is surprising for a cask conditioned beer. That goes to showcase the super attentuative cantillon strains.

O: Simply put, this is the best blended lambic I have ever had. This will be a tuff one to beat as well. This is also the most refreshing sour beer I have ever tasted. Bravo!
