Notes: Every house on Flamingo Road holds a secret and each resident has a story to tell. At 2616, we find Mr. Raspberry, a quiet type, Ms. Strawberry, the sort of dame you shouldn’t underestimate, and the notorious twins: Vanilla & Lactose. It was a balmy, wet evening when they arrived to a party, already well underway. But then things went sour. Who’s to blame? We’ll leave that to you. -2616- FLAMINGO ROAD, our first fruited sour, presents an enticingly fruity, refreshingly tart narrative of raspberries + strawberries + vanilla beans + lactose.

16 oz can poured into a snifter. A striking and moderately hazy pinkish-orange color. A standard pour produced a medium sized fluffy light pink head that slowly settled, leaving nice lacing. The aroma was bright and fruity with strawberries initially and then fading to a more raspberry note. No off flavors detected. There was a subtle sweetness to it, reminding me that this has lactose and vanilla. The first sip brought a gentle tartness with raspberries up front and strawberries on the finish. The lactose and vanilla brought a balancing sweetness which worked well and added some heft to the body. Overall this is outstanding IMO with the right mix of tart fruit and sweetness characteristic of so many BIBCO beers.
