On-tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood. Served in a stemless flute. Enjoyed next to tasters of young (6 month), old (18 month), and blended (6+18 month) lambics from the same brewer.

Burgandy body with bronze, cerise, and ruby highlights. Off-white, vaguely cream-tinged collar and a whispy slick. Thin lacing reflects the surface bubbles like a mirror image.

Light oak, bright cherry, berry, and grape notes in the nose; very inviting.

Easy-going lactic tartness, smooth and sophisticated wine-oak flavors - a touch of wild yeast/funk married to a burst of fruit and a pleasing slightly toasty maltiness. Very well balanced.

Medium-light bodied, well carbonated, mild brisk astringency weds well with the prickly tartness.

Very approachable to a novice sour drinker, but with enogh complexity and purity to staisfy a more demanding palate. A very fine and true example of the style.
