Style: Lambic - Unblended

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
From the brewery's website: "Although it is a spontaneous fermentation beer, the Iris is very different from the Lambic. The amber colour and the bitter and slightly caramelized taste make it a complex beer."

Probably the best beer I had on Zwanze Day,(although I actually liked Zwanze more than many people). I'd been waiting for this for quite some time, and it did not disappoint. Perfect blending of sourness and citrus flavors, super smooth, and very complex despite the low abv. I'm sure it's great in a bottle, but it's just amazing on tap. Loved it.

A-Cloudy orange/red, one finger head of the same color.

S-Oaky, cherries, grapes and mild funk.

T-Mild funk. Grapes, wheat, tad bit of hops and slight bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated with a dry finish.

O-The dry hopping was an interesting addition to this beer, yummy but a tad different than the others.
