superspak (5125) - 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.

nickd717 (4428) - Sofia, BULGARIA - DEC 18, 2016
Can (whaaaaaat?). Nice purple pour, the color of grapefruit juice as described by 50 Cent. Nice pink head. Aroma is loads of boos, super boosy, like Gary Boosy. Some funk. Flavor is legit, big tart round boos in your face. Really bites you. Medium body, nice fruity acidity. Another strong offering from Tickeller, who is always good for a tick, albeit an expensive one. Also best sour beer in a can Ive ever had.
