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.

Pours a decidedly raspberry color with a pinkish-tinged sudsy head that is in a hurry to vacate the premises and let me get my fruit on. The nose is crammed with ripe raspberry especially and some fresh strawberry notes as well.

The raspberry and strawberry flavors are perfect and complemented exceptionally well by a bit of sweetness from the lactose. There is no pucker in this sour, which is my preference.

The mouthfeel is medium and on the dry side. This is REALLY good, which is not surprising given the prowess of the brewery. Fantastic stuff.

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.
