On tap at Lost Nation. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Small white head. Some lacing.

Smell - Very oaky. Sharp acidity. Stone fruits and some maltiness. Hints of vinegar. A little citrusy.

Taste - Sharp sourness. Builds throughout. Fresh oak flavor. Pale maltiness and sourness give it a grapefruit flavor. Woody finish as the sourness peaks to a slight bit of vinegar.

Mouthfeel - Moderate sourness that spikes in the finish. Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - The style says Flanders Red as I review this, but it reminds me much more of a oak soured pale.

On tap at The Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL:

The beer was served in a snifter. The beer appeared a nice deep, clear red with a small, thin white head and some lacing. The beer gave off a very nice sour aroma, acidic and citrus. The taste of the beer was a nice, sharp sourness to it, with a light body, which was very easy to drink. Overall, a nice representation of the style. I would have had a few more, if I could have.

Draft snifter at Links for their Belgian bar popup thing.

Bright saturated orange, sharp clarity, thin broken skim with flecks of spotty lace.
Aroma shines with a nice yogurty cheesiness. Some sharpness. Play-doh?

Taste is pretty tart with a pleasant cheese rind funk. Somewhat one dimensional but tasty and drinkable. Significant oaky presence. If this was 12.99 a 750 I'd drink it often, but the ultra premium of $12/9oz is a little much. This doesn't really approach traditional lambic, though it seems that's what it was shooting for, I did enjoy it. Not at all a Flanders Red.

On tap at Capitol Beer on Sacramento. Sharp sour notes in aroma and taste. Slick, sticky body; bone dry finish. Extremely sour. Definite pucker, a bit more experience with the style will be necessary.
