2011 vintage poured into a gueuze like tumbler. Pretty standard looking lambic here. Golden straw color, a little orange hugh. Puffy white head that recedes with a fizz. Beautiful fruity apricot and stone fruit aroma, at first I didn't pick up on it, but as this warms it is there in spades. Also some lemon and light but present barnyard funk. Fruity, fruity flavor. Stone fruits lemon, a hit of lactic sourness and funk. Fou foune has a really clean apricot fruit finish that lingers. Fare carbonation with drying sourness.
I really enjoy the unique fruitiness of this lambic, unlike any I've had so far.

On-Tap at Northdown Cafe in Chicago
Served in a 10oz snifter
A - Light golden straw color with a little bit of opacity / murkyness. About 2" of Soft fluffy white head
S - Funkyness, a little barnyard, apricot and a nice citrus acidity
T - Nice sour acidity, not too sour though. The fruit is not overpowering, its subtle but nice. Not as amazing as I was let on to believe, although very good.
M - As expected for a lambic, pleasantly fruity, but slightly dry, nicely carbonated.
Overall - I'm very glad to have had the opportunity to try this on tap. This is a world class beer, but I am surprised at how closely this compares to other American sours I have had. I do think this beer is slightly over-hyped after trying it, there are many American Wilds that rival this that aren't in the top 50 IMHO.
