Wow, what an interesting beer. It is a light red, from what appears to be the combination of a gold beer base with the red coming from the fruit.
The basic flavor is very crisp. In the aftertaste, there is definitely an intentional sourness from the bacteria lambic style fermentation. The fruit is not heavy handed. It doesn't cover up the sourness, more leads into it. In this way, it is not a Lindemans style lambic. In a way this is rather nice as the super sweet fruit beer is pretty standard now.
All in all an interesting experiment. It won't make most people see god, but damn finely crafted.

Its clear, reddish-orange body is capped by a short but creamy head of delicate white foam that drops to a razor-thin lid but somehow manages to leaves some thin, lingering lace about the glass. The nose is lightly sweet and delicately tart with a slight Brettanomyces character (barnyard, horse blanket, wet hay, etc.) that's not strong enough to keep the uninitiated away, but strong enough to keep the aficianado's interest. The body is thin and it's gently crisp on the tongue with a fine carbonation. The flavor follows the suggestion of the nose with a mild sweet-tart character laced around delicate fruit (berries and cherry, but not particularily raspberry per se). It finishes short and dry, leaving the palate yearning for another taste as it's been tempted but not satiated. This is an exceptionally drinkable beer! Easily and without a doubt, the most balanced "infected" beer I've ever had. It may not be from Belgium, but it's certainly worth trying!

Very happy to enjoy several small glasses at the Yards Brewery tasting room, Philadelphia-on-Delaware, PA.
Pleasing pale orange/pink slightly cloudy brew with minimal head formation.
The aroma is berries and cherry, with a hint of lambic-type funk. Mouthfeel light a la wit. Flavor of tangy berries and a lemony sourness that is looking towards true lambicville but still plays it safe; however, I applaud this effort wholeheartedly for this is no fruity-sweet soda-pop fruit beer but a true, refreshing hybrid that I would say falls somewhere between true fruit lambic and fruit-wit. Yards is a serious and talented artisanal brewery that deserves accolades for creating well-conceived authentic efforts like Pynk as it serves up hoppy goodness for the American beer masses.
Perfect summer quaffer!! If only it had been a sweltering muggy Philly summer day instead of damp, cool and rainy.

Dark pink look with a froth of white.. White sheen as well. Puckering sourish raspberry taste with a little bity watery finish on the tongue. This would be an awesome conversion beer esp. for females and those who like fruity stuff. I was quite impressed but the slightly watery feel and faintish finish remind you that it is a "fake lambic"... Nice berry nose. Pretty good attempt..
