Drank on-tap at Deep Ellum, Allston, MA
Served in a cervoise

The hazy, straw colored liquid was topped by a bright white, sea foam, three-finger head that deposited thick rings of lacing all down the glass.

Tons of dry, powdery yeastiness came through in the nose. Super crisp and snappy. Moderately funky and musty with bright, clean, lemon notes. As much as I loved the aroma, I would be remiss if I did not say that it reminded me of lemon scented Pledge. A touch of hops appeared as well.

The taste was soft and gentle for a wild ale, yet o-so-flavorful. As in the nose, the dry, crisp yeastiness was immediately noticeable but it quickly softened to reveal layers of flavors. Crackery malts appeared up front. Notes of lemon peel and white wine appeared in the center. A touch fruity and spicy. Some sourness was present but it was restrained for the style. The beer was rather musty however. The finish was quite striking with notes of lemon peel, oak and earthy hops lingering into the dry, refreshing aftertaste.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Smooth and frothy with a zippy, large bubbled effervescence.

Drinkability was fantastic. This beer is super tasty and refreshing. I cannot think of a better way to relax on a warm, Boston, summer night than with a Lady.

I have tried a number of beers from Cisco Brewing and this is unquestionably my favorite to date. While it may not exhibit the intense sourness of some other American wild ales, it does certainly demonstrate a complexity of flavor and a smoothness that many lack.

Poured from a bottle conditioned, 750 ml bottle into a goblet glass. 2014 vintage

Pours a golden amber color with an eggshell white head that dissipates rather quickly. Very little visible lacing around the glass as I sip. The color alms or reminds me of apple juice to be honest. It's quite exquisite!

Smells of sour pears, apples, and peaches. Lacto is very prevalent on the nose with no malt or hop profile detected.

Tastes very tart as it costs the tongue. Lacto is present. Although very sour, the beer finishes a bit sweet, particularly when licking your lips minutes after swallowing. Some oaky finish is present as well upon swallowing.

Mouthfeel is awesome. Puckering initially l, but then mellows out upon swallowing, bringing out the oaky flavor from the barrel aging. Although this beer is well carbonated, it doesn't have an overly harshness on the tongue. The pleasant prickliness is welcoming with each sip.

One of the best sour beers I may have ever had. Very well balanced with a mouthfeel that leaves you yearning for another sip. I think this beer would benefit from aging, it's pretty fantastic as it is upon release. I would definitely seek this one out of you are a sour beer fan. You will not be disappointed!
