4.11/5 rDev -3.3%
12.7 oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a dense gold with a one-inch eggshell head that sticks around for a few minutes. Lacing minimal. Heavy carbonation.
Aroma: Now this is funky. The beer has a powerful aroma of lemons and funk. You can definitely understand why people say this style has a "barnyard" smell.
Taste: How much tart can you take? This is a sour beer for people who love sour beers. It tastes like lemons, citrus and overpowering sourness. It's a sipper for me - one to savor and enjoy. It also has some nice vinous quality to it.
Mouthfeel: This beer has a nice, light body. Almost summery in depth.
Overall: Someone unfamiliar with lambics will find this too abrasive - like if someone poured paint thinner into a very tart shandy. But lambic fans will love it - it hits all the notes, brings a bomb of sour flavor, and comes in that cool bottle.
