Draft. The best American lambic I have tried and rivals many of the European ones also. A muted pink color with a small white head. Aroma and taste is funky, sour, very tart with some fruitiness. Finish is lasting and moderately dry. While I complained that their original lambic was a beginners this one is a graduate level lambic.

Very good. A shocking amount of tartness, some sweetness and funk in the finish, and a sharp sour sensation as a chaser. Have some slight pomegranate flavor, but not overly so.

(growler) Copper pour with a thin white head. Incredibly tart aroma. Not much pomegranate but that doesn’t matter. Big sour and tart vinegar flavor with maybe a hint of fruit at the end. What a sour ale should be.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a hazy salmon-tinted gold with a small white head that settles into a ring and leaves a few spots of lace. The aroma is dominated by vinegar. The flavor has more complexity; pomegranate, lemon, grape skins, vanilla, oak, sour tropical fruits, sugar, and - yeah - a lot of vinegar, too. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and an acetic mouthfeel. I could handle about two ounces. Would go well on a spinach salad.

Tap Sample. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Sour tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with tingly texture and flat carbonation. Heavy sour fruity flavor with a heavy acidic fruit and sour bite finish of moderate to long duration. Glad I had a sample only.

Tasted on 7/25/14 from a 64oz growler purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours fiery red/orange with an average pink-tinged head that slowly recedes to average, bubbly lace. The nose is a really nice blend of traditional lambic style citrus tartness with a mixture of both fresh pomegranate and more candied grenadine, along with a very light and very lightly toasted oak aroma. The flavor is a bit stronger on the tart, somewhat abrasive side, with the pomegranate, grenadine, and oak showing lightly sweet on the back of the palate. This really is reminiscent of a traditional fruited lambic. The body is medium with some grippy tannin, fairly light carbonation, and a long tart and lightly sweet pomegranate and touch of oak on the finish.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy pinkish, purple, orange color with a small lightppink head. The aroma and flavor have tart pomegranate and berries, lactic, moderate acidity, solid funk, I really enjoy their lambics and gueuze and wish they did more of them, finishes tart to sour pomegranate, light woody character with lingering acidity.

At to snifter at Dutchs. Looks good; a translucent pomegranate seed color with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart and fruity with a strong lacto presence. Tastes like it smells, but the lacto is more balanced. Pleasantly lively on the palate. Good stuff.

Draught at Beer Trappe. Tart and puckery with an orange body and a nice fruit finish. Very good!

JaBier (5094) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Sample at the sour event at World of Beer Brewery District on 5/25/14. Hazy red in color, like grapefruit juice, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sour citrus and acidic vinegar with slight tropical fruit and malty sweet notes. Pomegranate flavor up front giving way to oak before a sour and acidic finish.

Draft. Dusty pomegranate and wheat malt aroma. Murky ruby red with moderate head. Sweet-tart pomegranate and lemon malt flavor. Dry, musty finish. Excellent.
