(Bottle) hazy, bright pinkish amber colour with a small pinkish beige head; aroma of sourness, fruit compote, leather; intense, sour flavour, long medium sour finish superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2017
330 ml can into tulip glass, best before 6/22/2017. Pours slightly hazy ruby red/light pink/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge tart/jammy raspberry, cranberry, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, oak, musty funk, red wine vinegar, light vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt notes; with huge strength. Taste of huge tart/jammy raspberry, cranberry, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, oak, musty funk, red wine vinegar, light vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of fruity/lactic sourness and tannic fruit/oak tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, cranberry, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, oak, musty funk, red wine vinegar, light vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/sourness balance; lightly puckering, but not astringent. Moderate dryness from tart/sourness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and acidic/tannic/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.7%. Overall this is an incredible fruit lambic! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the fairly intense lactic sourness and tannic fruit flavors. Never overwhelming with a nice malt backing for balance. A highly enjoyable offering.
