Notes / Commercial Description:
Everyone knows some of our best friends are wine growers from the Libourne region in France, more specifically those who make Saint Emillion and Pomerol. They respect the tradition and let their wine ferment in a natural way.

Fermentation, origin and vintage are still kept up.

Our collaboration resulted in a product uniting the best of their wine and of our beer : the Saint-Lamvinus.

The grapes, of the merlot and cabernet-franc varieties, are soaked in Bordeaux barrels containing two to three years old lambic. The beer is not blended before the bottling. The foam is caused by the addition of a liquor which starts the fermentation.

Poured a clear strawberry red with a light white head.

The nose is dominated by tart lacto along with a touch of ripe fruit.

The flavor is full of a crisp clean tartness along with an underlying bit of dark fruit

The mouthfeel is very tart and dry.

Solid classic sour.

2011 vintage poured into a Duvel art glass.

A-Pours hazy brilliant red of shade with a tight, thin white head. Head quickly dissipates and doesn’t leave any lacing.

S-Nose is grape, oak, some band aid (this might be because I didn’t wash my glass from the last beer), lemon, and must.

T-The flavor is where Lamnivus shines. It’s balance between the lemon and grape is superb, they complement each other perfectly. In addition, Lamnivus has some nice mineral characters as well as a good amount of must.

M-Light mouthfeel, moderate acidity, prickly carbonation, and a nice enduring finish.

O-One of the best fruit lambics around, I’m hard pressed to name many I would take over this. Really wish bottles weren’t so hard to come by.
