DrnkMcDermott's rating

DrnkMcDermott (3096) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Rating #900! and popping the cork on #69 of RBís 70 beer styles. 750 ml, "Bottled 2005." Well, the only common beer with a "900" in its name is Camo 900, so letís do this instead. Besides, itís symmetry: my first rating was Capitol 1900.
Pours light yellowish brown, looking a bit like apple juice. No real head, but some pinprick bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Smell is pretty nice. I expected lots of sourness, but more cidery notes with a bit of wood. But taste is where the sourness comes in. Real brett sourness, no acid used here. Somehow a bit rubbery, then more of the crabapple cider. What else? Some butterscotch, mown hay thatís actually tripping my allergies. Yep, there are those stale hops, and a big barnyard character. Reminds me of that Berliner Weisse toward the end.So what do I compare this to, if itís likely the only unblended lambic Iíll find outside of Belgium? Itís certainly a pleasure to have discovered and enjoyed this puzzle, so Iíll count my experience as part of the rating.
