dslam (43) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Murky red color with minimal white head. Poured from tap. Was sitting on the table so I can’t really smell much. Sour but not too sour that it forces your face into a picturesque cartoon figure. good cherry taste, that lasts a few seconds.

pictoman (475) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Poured from the tap. Pinkish red with pink head. Sour cherry and vinegar aroma. Much the same taste. Fairly complex. Average sourness and sweetness. I seem to recall it being a little better at the brewery, but still very good.

Deep red in color. Honesty, the reason I love the lambic style so much is goddamn smell. If I could put the aroma of this beer into an O2 tank and breath it all day I would.
