Vintage 2006 according to the cork.

A - Pours the color of raspberry juice. A light violet color that has a haze to it. Starts with a fizzy, vivid pink head that is about 2 inches on the pour, but quickly dissappears, leaving not even a bubble on the surface.

S - Big tart nose. Lightly acidic with grapes shining through. Fruity and fresh. Superb smell that isn't over the top.

T - Starts off sweet and fruity with loads of big grape flavors. Red wine comes in with a dryness that is very nice. Even though I know there are no fruits added here, the grapes seem to lend some raspberry and currants. About midway though, the tartness comes in. It isn't overpowering, but nice and pleasant. No pucker going on here. Slightly sour, I get a bit of lymon towards the end. Finishes dry with no aftertaste.

M - Medium to light bodied. Dry feel to it. Carbonation is low, but as it should be for the style.

D - This is a remarkably drinkable beer. Many lambics lend themselves to being big time sippers, but I find myself wanting to gulp this one. Great balance of flavor and tartness. Thanks a ton John!

Price: $34.99 Served In: Pint Glass
