750mL thanks to CaptainCougar. The pour is a flat golden peach. No head formation. Nose is grainy, wheat mash. Taste is....hot tamale I think I just took a shot of whiskey! Buttery bourbon, oak, boozy heat. So weird. Not bad...but druiven lambic is not what I would call this.

Thanks to Zack, and my good luck, fantastic! The aroma is great, Grapes and other fruits, it looked great in the glass as well, no head, but looked slightly pink, like a Rose Wine. The taste is outstanding, a fine sour beer, I believe it’s a one off, I wish I had more!!
