4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a beautiful red color with a champagne rise and fall head.
The aroma is really nice, funky with some barnyard, some wet hay, wet wool. & some lemon. The fruitiness here is spot on, not sweet... but very forward, bright, but working well alongside the other aspects of the bouquet. This smells like a cranberry lambic through and through.
The flavor is actually pretty sour, there is way more lemon character than cranberry, although the tart cranberry flavor is always in the background. Very tart, a little leathery, with some citrus rind and yogurt. As it warms it get’s a little fruitier, & takes on a sort of woody/cork-y thing, that’s nice.
Easily one of my favorites of the series.

A very nice sour and one I’d like to have again. Cranberries work exceptionally well in a sour. Top stuff.
