Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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."

On tap at Capone's Black Friday event
Vintage: 2004

A - A medium orange color with honey highlights... Glowing and effervescent... Cheery... Loaded with carbonation with bubbles bursting throught the surface... Not much in the way of either head or lacing...

S - Salt water... Floral... Weak sweet citrus... A minor funkiness...

T - Tart pear... Salted grapefruit... Sour apple... Citrus acidity... Berries... Some faint yeasty notes... Ever so slight candied sugar finish...

M - On the light side of medium bodied... Bold carbonation... Crisp and assetive... A whopper of a tart puckering follow through... Oddly addictive...

D - A delicate sipper... Highly enjoyable... This 5 year old version is proof that this beer can be aged as those still possessed vigorous tartness and carbonation...

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle to try... 2007 Vintage.. bottled Feb., 17th, 2010

- Nice semi-cloudy copper color... orange glow... fizzy fingers of white head.. down to a nice consistent thin pillow on top.

- Amazing tart floral aroma... what a fantastic aroma.. slight funk, candy sweetness... slight bittering... amazing.

- Wonderful slightly funky tart.. light oaky woody flavor.. slight candy sweetness.. big bitter dry punch to the palate to finish...

- Thin and bubbly.... dry, yet mouth watering.

- Overall this an A grade sour... and the lightest one I have tried.. and I love it... great hot weather sour. Must try.
