3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from growler.
The amber lambic got a aroma of candid apples. Somewhat the aroma of a barley wine. The oak is forward, and pushes me to think of a bourbon. Harsh sourness in the back of the mouth, thatís not so nice, but smother on the front of the tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at the Churchkey in DC. Poured into a jelly glass. The restaurant was dark so I couldnít make out the color, but there was no head or carbonation. It was also served a little warmer than I expected, which relaxed what could have been an overpoweringly sour experience. Really, my tastebuds shriveled at the incredibly sour aroma.
This is a sour beer, but it was definitely meaty and earthy as well. Iíve had too many BB sours lately, so I appreciate the oak barrels used here.
This was a pleasant, though kind of simple oak-sour. Iíll definitely drink again, though I wouldnt pay $13 for a glass of this again.

Draft at ChurchKey for Night of the Living Ales: Part 3. Poured a slightly hazy, red-brown color with a murky hue to it along with a white head. Aroma was sour notes, woody character. Some sweet notes, a touch of funk. Pretty good.
