4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Stags Head. Poured a light amber with a medium fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma includes grass, slight Brett funk, oak, and sour cherries. Taste begins with earthiness and funk of yeast followed by well-balanced tart and sweet cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla. Wonderful fizzy carbonation produces a great mouthfeel and flavors linger on the palate long after each sip. Tame, very drinkable sour.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a hazy dark amber/copper color with a one finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Earthy, funky aroma with good lactic funk, oaky barnyard/musty horse blanket character. Also a but vinous with dark fruit, musty, funky bugs and earthy oak. Strong acetic solvent quality appears when it warns. Smells similar to real lambic.
Medium bodied with a strong puckering, sour mouthfeel. Very tart with strong lactic funk and acetic solvent character. A bit too stron in the acetone character but has nice sourness and funk along with dry earthy oak and subtle vinous fruit. Kind of one dimensional with only subtle flavors balancing out the funk and strong solvent presence.
