MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Poured from a 750ml corked bottle (Aug. 28, 2007 bottling date) and served in a tumbler. This beer poured a light pinkish red with a tiny, short-lived head of pink hued/off-white fizzy bubbles. Minimal lacing. The aroma of the beer was made up of sour cherry skins and funk. Sweet, fruity smell while still coming across as higly acidic. The flavor was crisp and acidic/sour on the tongue with a sweet, sugary cherry finish. Very sour but not overwhelmingly dry or acidic. The fruit lends a nice, lasting sweetness. The mouthfeel was light-bodied with light carbonation. The fruit takes the front seat in this lambic, but it still packs a nice sour/funky punch. Young but tasty.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Green bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a slightly hazy bright red with a thin film of pink head. Smells fruity and acidic with hints of malt. Tastes initially sweet and fruity, slightly malty, and very sour. Pretty light in body, fairly aqueous, and light in carbonation. Takes a little getting used to, but after a few sips, brilliantly sour, subtly complex, and very enjoyable indeed. Im hooked.
