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.
