For my 50th review, the second beer enjoyed with my wife on our recent anniversary trip to Bavarian Lodge. Served in chalices branded with the lodge's logo.
A - Crimson-rose with a pinkish tint when held to the light. A pink, foamy head of about a finger quickly diminishes to a soapy ring that leaves patchy lacing behind.
S - Sour cherries, and heavy tannins. A bit of the ol' barnyard funk as well, just like I expected/wanted this to smell. The cherry aroma is spot-on.
T - Very similar to the nose. Mouth-puckeringly tart cherries dominate up front, with tannins and some vinegar on the back end.
M - Consistent carbonation, low to medium body. Finishes sour, but fairly clean.
D - The vinegar becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. My wife and I split a 25.4 oz bottle, so a smaller serving may have mitigated somewhat. As it was, the last few sips were a chore, although this was a very pleasant drinker early on.

750ml Served in a Prairie Teku
A - Crystal clear, Raspberry red good clarity, tiny head,
S - Chery cough syrup, must, dirt, sharp cherries and raspberries, candy sweettarts,
T - Red-wine vinegar slays the senses, dull tartness grows into a raspberry and cherry acidic lock jaw. Bigtime sour, old funk, salt, tart cherries, granny smith apple skins, raw cranberry juice, finishes dry and very acidic.
M - Light body, wine like, silky, little to no carbonation, sour, dry finish
Excellent sour Lambic. It has some funk but the sourness is the main player. If your in the mood for some puckering sour lambic juice, this is your liquid. Haassens doesn't mess around.
