4.34/5 rDev -6.3%
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.

A: It looks like cloudy lemonade to me with a solid cloudiness. Liquid honey.
S: Bouquet of flowers, pears and apples, orchard flowers.
T: Follows the nose in complexity of fruits, especially pears and apples, as well as orchard flowers.
M: Medium Body, medium low carbonation. Very dry.
O: Dry, complex and awesome quality. Drank this one on site at Cantillon. Was an awesome experience!

3.81/5 rDev -17.7%
On tap at Northdown in Chicago for their annual wildlife sanctuary benefit.
A: Pours a really beautiful cloudy gold with two fingers of soapy head that fades into a beautiful cap.
S: A balance of funk and sourness, some dry apricot, some lemon zestiness, some vinegar.
T: Bitter, dry apricot, white grape, sour, barnyard-ish funk... almost like wet farm grass.
M: Light with high, fizzy carbonation.
O: Glad to have had the opportunity to try this, but not worth vigilantly seeking out, in my opinion. I'm with the bros on this one: a very good beer, but not mindblowing by any means.
