A: The pour is a nice dark pink-purple-red sort of color with a minimal pink-white head forming that quickly dies away. S: A fairly funky as well as fruity nose. Good currant notes along with some sweet blueberries. A bit of musty funk and a strong aroma of funky blue cheese (good call on that, Javi). Some slightly spicy oak notes and a mild acetic character. T: The flavor is not quite as full and rich as I was expecting from the nose. Still plenty of fruitiness, though, mainly currants with a fair amount of sweet berries. The sourness is subdued here, and is mainly acetic, with a soft mustiness. M: The body is medium with a soft, smooth carbonation that is definitely appropriate for a lambic. D: Better than I recall the other Iron Hill lambics being (especially the fruited varities). Really nice nose, but the flavor does fall a bit short. That said, still easy to drink and enjoy.
