2012 bottle I think. very red shade of amber, fizzy off white head. Aroma is quite tart with a lot of cherry, no raspberry in the nose. Taste is very fruity, tart but not sour. Good blend of cherry and raspberry here. Thin with high carbonation. Pretty good for an American sour but nothing to write home about.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby red with a thin white head that fades quickly. Taste is of tart cherries, raspberries, citrus, yeast, wood and is a bit sour. Similar tart and sour aroma. Has a creamy body that coats the mouth. The finish is slightly dry and a tad tart. Is very easy to drink and the tartness leaves me wanting more. Not a bad brew, but it reminds me more of a wine than a beer and at $18 it is extremely overpriced for what it is.

Pours a semi clear rose copper with very little white head. Aroma is a mix of raspberries, dried cherry and oak. Flavor is very tart, unsweetened dried cherries, oak and undertones of dark chocolate actually. Body is light with very active carbonation.

A real decent sour lambic ale, nice cherry aroma, tasty with cherry and raspberry notes, dry sourness but a otherwise a very light bodied ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.
Appearance: Pretty pinkish-red (kind of a subdued raspberry color) but initial light pink head disappears far too rapidly.
Aroma: Lightly tart and sweet - aroma of cherry, raspberry and oak. So no surprises here.
Taste: Lightly tart - the cherry and raspberry complement one another nicely, which is good for me since I do not usually like it when beers become too cherry-centric. Some nice malt backing with light oak characteristics. Some light peppery notes at the finish.
Palate: Moderately high carbonation, fairly light body, dry and tart finish.
Overall: Very solid Lambic-style ale here. Not mind blowing but nicely balanced, light, pleasing and very refreshing. Another great job by Odell

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
FOBAB 09. Pours a murky reddish amber color with a quickly dissipating white head. Taste is of raspberry, assorted other fruit, wood, and grass. Taste starts off with different kinds of fruit, specifically raspberry and cherry. Has a nice underlying wooden flavor underneath all the fruit. Tartness starts to set in after a few sips. Has a nice lingering earthy funk flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp, but too light. Drinks real easy.
