2015 vintage drank on 12/21/2016

Look: medium red/pink with slight haze, and a thin white head

Smell: bright raspberry, earthy/barnyard funk to it, floral, red fruitiness

Taste: follows the nose. Well balanced between the fruit and funk. Light sour on a long finish, with the funk a little more forward

Feel: Medium body with smooth tartness and very drinkable...flavors linger a little but definitely don't overpower the palate

Overall: Superb, well balanced fruited sour. I'm a sucker for raspberry lambic and this does not fall short of expectations. Love this

This is the most disappointing beer I've ever had. It was rancid in smell, pure band aid rot in taste and over all just a complete gross beer that was very sadly poured into the drain.
