Lambic X 2011
« on: March 29, 2014, 01:31:39 AM »
Never tried this one until tonight at Trapeeze Bar in Athens GA.  Really nice - tart apple and pear on the aroma.  I was told this was not blended, rather a first offering of straight up lambic - straw-colored and lots of fruit on the nose; really subdued tart and funk.  Flavor was not over the top with pear, but a sour note that had backbone, without excessive sour lactic impressions; just enough malt to give it an edgy balance between fruity esters and sour/sweetness.  No caramel, just edge of the palate balance.  I think I found Nirvana.  Or a reasonable substitute....
