TET (1548) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
A brownish yellow beer with a quite weak and blond head. The nose is sour and balanced, lots of green apples, strong and unique earthyness, lether, some green grapes and cherries. The aroma is great and complex. Taste is strongly sour, lether, apples, grapes, some vinegar. The end is dry, sour and balanced with herbs. Medium bodied, not sticky, fresh to drink. The great beer that fullfills my high expectations. Complex, interesting, fresh and strongly sour but with nice balance.

750 ml bottle to tulip (shared with the Mrs.). EXP: 25/04/18. Looks good; a hazy deep lambic orange with fluffy eggshell head. Smells good too; funky, hoppy, and mildly tart with a nice lambic presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant lambic-like mouthfeel. Good stuff!
