I can't say this is a pretty appearance of a beer, comes in looking like an overrated East coast turbidity kind of ipa.

Aroma was nice though, plenty of sour and tartness, plum, oak.

Taste was good stuff, more plum, oak, dark cherry, very acidic, too acidic if you ask me. White wine like notes accompany the plum.

Poured from the bottle at Hill Farmstead on May 6, 2016.
Pours up a medium amber with just a hint of haze. Half a finger of head and great lacing.
Aromas are sour yeast and some good fruit as well. Sticky.
Taste is big and sour right on the front of my tongue, after that passes mellow fruit sweetness is present.
Finishes really clean and dry.
Overall, a beautiful lambic, not too sweet. Lots of sourness and tart.

Big thanks to Beervana for the bottle.

Really nice geueze here with a strong musty, dank nose, funk nose with some spice, pepper, oak, grass/hay. The taste also has strong funk, acidic sourness, white pepper, oak, with a beautiful white grape finish. A stelar geueze!

March 2015 vintage poured from a 375mL bottle into a Tilquin Tumbler. Acquired as an extra in a trade with CSO, thank you!

Pours a cloudy orange body with a purple tinge, a somewhat fizzy two finger white head reduces fairly quickly to leave no lacing or retention. The orange/purple/maroon-ish body is beautiful.

Aromas are fruit forward and funky - definitely get fruit here, not sure I could pick out plums if you didn't tell me but I'd definitely guess there to be stone fruit in here. Funky tartness, oak, acetic aromas.

On the tongue it's absolutely fantastic - Upfront is are tart sour apple notes mixed with a light woodyness and some funky barnyard, over-ripe fruits, dry white wine, the follow through is very tart and dry, finishing with citrus and lactic notes. Not as carbonated as expected, medium-light, easy drinking body.

I was very impressed with this offering - the "fresh" lambic character including bright fruit and a crisp tartness was really nice. Would be interested in seeing what a few years would do.
