Pennsylvania

3.95/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Produced a huge meringue-like 3-finger head which lasted quite a bit of time. Below was a cloudy deep orange tinged beer with streams of bubbles emanating from the bottom. Aromas of banana, clove, plums and sweet dark cherries were detected. Taste was sour, acidic and reminiscent of dry champagne. An aftertaste of dark chocolate was noted as well. A good mouthfeel, but a bit too tingly. I think I need to explore this style of beer a bit more before I make a solid judgement on this one.

A- Very pale amber beer with white head. Dissipated quickly with no lacing

S- smells tart green apple with a yeasty/bready base. Mostly lactic sour with some acetic aromas.

T- Tastes great more sour than funky, green apple like the aroma it has a hay like finish. Very dry

M- Light body, with high carbonation, slight pucker in the finish.

O- Great beer, dry and easy to drink. I will try it again.

3.71/5  rDev -6.1%

Poured into a snifter. Nice, hazy light yellow color with a head that fizzed away immediately.

Smell was fruity, citrusy sourness, with a hint of vinegar.

Not too familiar with many geueze lambics, but if the flavor characteristics for this style are funky and sour, then they hit the mark. This is a very tart, dry beer that is also very refreshing. Almost like a sour grapefruit without the sweet. No hop bitterness whatsoever. Definitely has that aged, oaky dry finish. Will seek out more of this style, but sparingly. Can get pretty pricey for just one bottle
