Sinds kort dit bier echt kunnen ontdekken. Geweldig bier, spijtig dat ik het niet eerder ontdekte. Je proeft gewoon dat dit een artisanaal product is.

Bottle shared by Matt Grussing on July 4th. If only more American brewers showed the kind of restraint in going for sours. Lightl sours, nice amount of cherry. Awesome.

thirstyrabbit (1460) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2015
375 ml bottle, 5 months old. Pours a beautiful ruby red body with a medium tall pink head. Aroma has faint notes of cherry and then some dry notes of lambic. Taste is mostly tart (pretty high level) with some sour cherries and cherry stones. Finish allows some sweeter parts of cherries to emerge but only for a moment - the high tartness is quick to override them. Pretty crisp and refreshing but not quite as complex as I was hoping for. Perhaps an aged bottle would taste different.

En fût au Moeder Lambic. Je déguste en ce moment LA bière qu’il faut boire par un 35 degrés à l’ombre à 19h. Bière rouge Bourgogne et mousse rosée et persistante, nez délicat de cerises griottes, c’est l’été dans mon verre! En bouche l’acidité est importante mais la bière, combien facile à boire dû à cette cerise rafraîchissante. Aucune mais aucune saveur artificielle, on est que dans la fraîcheur estivale, la jeune cerise surette, une pomme verte, une amertume de noyau de cerise et de citron. Grandement rafraîchissante!
