ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2016
750 mL unlabeled bottle. Deep orange and a bit reddish. Huge off-white head. Thick collar. Lots of wisps. Smell is very musty. Yeasty. Lots of funk and some tart musty berry. Kinda woody with some dried grass. Taste has musty blackberry. More distinct blackberry. Kind of a wine-like grape flavor. Some oak. Pleasant tartness, but not that sour. Just a lot of yeastiness. High carbonation. Medium light body. I understand this is Girardin lambic, but it doesnt have that intense acetic sourness that Girardin typically has. Much more fruit and wood.
