Pinotlambicus Sampled on 1/22/2010. This sour ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, tart, funk, hint of grapes and grape skins. A medium bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity, tart and funky. Hints of Pinot Noir grapes and some grape skin tannins. The hops are earthy. Little to no carbonation, not sure it needs any to tell the truth. It gets tarter as it warms. Interesting beer. Love the funk and tartness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is tart and funky.

this'll be one of those that eventually goes into the wild ale catergory. not a flemish (or a lambic despite the name), but a sour. had this during the BCS championship at a local pub that was having a deschutes night to commemerate Oregons near title. Side by side with a fresh Dissident, this beer was it's equal, though i know what dissident does with age! right now, this one is more tart - not quite lip smacking but close. a great aromatic and flavorful marriage of wine and beer. the grape aspect of the barrels really made this unique and more akin to a good brown sour (my preferred) to a yellow. well done. waaay overpriced, but we split a bottle
