On tap at the Federal Taphouse in Lancaster PA. Flat appearance with the fruit and sour hitting the nose. A lot of bang in the taste with pucker to the end that has you going right back for another sip. Outstanding sour that I will hope to sample again someday.

On tap at Bangers & Lace, quick review from written notes.

Murky light reddish brown color, thin film of foam across the surface, minimal spotty lace.

Unique aroma, slightly acetic, sharp apple cider vinegar. Definitely more Flanders inspired though the brewer calls it a lambic.

Very tart and puckering, verging on sour, definitely a big cider vinegar component, almost one note, though it's pleasant enough. Dry finish, light carbonation, acetic. Kicks the salivary glands into overdrive, made a good apertif for a few snacks.

Overall this is closer to an unblended Oud Bruin or something, nothing close to traditional Belgian lambic, but enjoyable in its own right.

On tap at The Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a a slightly dark amber, with no head, or no lacing. It looks basically still.

Smells like oak, earth, vinegar, and some mild fruit.

This tastes kind of woodsy and weird, and not in an actually good way, unfortunately. It's got a fairly intense vinegary flavor, along with a kind of damp cedar thing, and a kind of weird herbal taste that's hard to place.

This is medium bodied, fairly dry, with barely any carbonation.

I can't really recommend this one.
