4.78/5 rDev +4.8%
Poured from a 375ml bottle
A: Slightly hazy yellow, some thin white bubbles on the surface
S: Very reminiscent of actual lambic - a very upfront brett funk, hay, wheat, I think I'm getting some of that infamous horse blanket. There's something in the funkiness aroma that you wouldn't expect to like but it is so intriguing and undeniably complex and enjoyable
T: Wow, a little more sour than your average sour. The mouth puckering aspect in the taste of this beer alone is a wild ride. Huge sour flavor with a big intensity at the very beginning that is felt by my tongue, cheeks and roof of my mouth. The intensity dies down but lingers in the background while you notice the sweet floral, hay like qualities of the malt balancing perfectly with the funk.
M: Just slightly dry, works with the flavors perfectly
O: I was not the least bit disapointed by this beer with the high hopes that I had for it. The sour aspect of this beer is very unique for an American beer.

Ap - Hazy straw, head quickly dissipates to nothing. No lace.
Ar - Lemon, horse blanket, grape/wine. Almost saison-like.
T - Almost enamel ripping sourness. Lemon, grape.
M - Dry, light bodied, easy, silky.
O - Just want this aged. Maybe a year or two. Can't wait to try it then.
