Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TheLongBeachBum on 12-05-2002

From the brewery's website: "Although it is a spontaneous fermentation beer, the Iris is very different from the Lambic. The amber colour and the bitter and slightly caramelized taste make it a complex beer."

2005 Vintage. Amazing. It smells like a pig farm, and it tastes like old yeast, dirty socks and underripe grapes. Yet as unappetizing as that sounds, it's one of my favorite Lambics of all time. Probably too sour & funky for some tastes, I find it has just enough hoppiness to balance it out and crisp it up. This baby works on every level.

I am pretty sure this is my favorite beer on the planet. I just simply cannot bring myself to give anything a perfect score because what is perfect? Call me jaded, call me what you will, but there is always room for improvement, no matter how subtle.
