Great sour, tart raspberry flavor is exactly what I am looking for in a lambic.

Poured into a Deschutes Teku glass, 2013-2014 vintage.
Looks great for the style, low carbonation, copper in color.
Smells nice and funky, barnyard and musty hay in a good way.
Taste is a great sour, tart green apples that are slightly funky but in that perfect Lambic way.
Good mouthfeel upfront with a nice flinty mineral dryness at the end. Compliments the tart lambic style very well. Carbonation was not high but is good for the style. Definitely there on the end.
Overall a great lambic which should be tried if you are interested or like the style. Complex for the beer lovers, but accessible enough that a white wine dinker may even find this to be a good gateway beer.

A: Poured a cloudy lemon drop yellow color with a nice white cap, bubbles and light lacing

S: Immediate sour lemons, hay, and a big musty horseblanket

T: Lemon and funkiness whop the palate but neither really compete, just meshed well and there is a ton of flavor. It has a dry, acidic sting on the back with more lemon, hay and funk

M: ThWell carbonated, light to medium body, loads of taste on the mouthfeel. This beer is tasty until the very end.

O: Exceptional. I enjoyed every drop and happy to pay the hefty price for the beer and will do so again. Very tasty and a beer that Farmhouse and Gueze lovers can applad.

Don't know the bottle #, not labeled that way. The bottle is signed individually. Poured into a Duvel snifter.

A: Very golden appearance, light ring, seems light on the yeast.

S: Pears, citron, yeasty, sourdough (ya, sourdough)

T: Great Lambic, fantastic sour.

M: light carbonation, should impove with age as all lambics do.

O: Very nice sour/lambic...very light, barnyard aromatics. A worthy beer for the $27 tag.
