3.69/5 rDev +5.4%
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter
A- A clear dark pinkish color with a red tint and a two finger white head with a light pink tint.
S- Raspberries, some tart cherries, an almost jam like sweetness.
T- Tart raspberries and cherries, bready malts, not much more going on, the tartness is not a very big flavor.
M- Light body, crisp.
O- Not a bad fruit beer, but not great beer. Tartness is very mild and the malts are a little out of place.

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.
