Enjoyed at the 2016 Copenhagen Beer Festival in Boston, MA. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured a nice golden orange hue with a very thin wispy head.

S - Aromas of absolutely massive barnyard funk with some light horse blanket with just a little tartness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. The barnyard funk here is huge but not off putting at all. The tartness is more pronounced thankfully. Not overwhelming, very balanced.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, nice acidity, bit flemmy.

O - Overall this was quite the pleasant lambic. Really, really loved how forward the funk was on this. Really enjoyable.

Serving Type: On Tap

2 year old from a bag in a box.

Still. Golden orange color.

Easy drinking. Lemon citrus. Funky with wet oak. Hay. Wet cardboard.

Solid beer. Fun to drink straight lambic.

On tap at the Masonry, Seattle. This beer was served in a tulip, with a big head that quickly faded, leaving some lacing. It's anything but flat.

The aroma is mild. The taste is funk and sour, a little barnyard. Overall, it's interesting but not memorable, if that makes any sense.

A- Out of the bag into my glass with a flat dead beer where no head dares to form. No lace of course. Fairly cloudy deep golden orange body.

S- Raw funky beast blows aromas of sulfur, horsey doom, raw grains, fresh apricots, lemon, spicy straw and smooth barrels.

T- Some of the funk and the sulfur dies out with less of a freshly used fireworks but plenty of tartness and funky old lambic bugs. Underripe sour stone fruits, lemons, grapes, sour apple, wine, slight oak with its tannins, slight bitter citrus zest and yeast spice.

MF- Flat as can be but sours can handle that. The body is slick and at a medium thickness. Ends somewhat tart.

Unblended lambics are always fun to try. The raw earthy feel of these brews is insane and really makes you realize what the blender is doing to get those beers just right. Funky and sour goodness.
