A Belgian Lambic style beer that is light bodied with a beautiful copper color and thin lacey head. True to its style, the beer is noticeably sour with a hint of apple and black currant; carbonation is very low. A specialty beer that aficionados of the style will certainly enjoy.

My Bottom Line:
This fruity and mild P-Lambic benefits from a touch of horseblanket and tartness, but its dry finish and overall flavor profile could gain from being more complex.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no head of foam atop the reddish amber.
-The aroma is more interesting than the flavor profile, providing a tad more funkiness.
-With its low carbonation, mild fruit and shy funk, this is very drinkable, but it is also unmemorable and subpar for lovers of the style.
-The fruitiness is not terribly defined, being buried under some earthy yeast and blurry malts.

On tap at the brewpub.

on tap-pours a disappearing white head and amber color. Aroma is wood/leather, some fruit, spices, vinegar, earthy. Taste is wood/leather, fruit-cherry, spices, vinegar, earthy. Minimum carbonation. Not my taste but a good, on the mild side, example of the style.
