Tyttebær

500 mL bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a highly carbonated one with a peach colored body. The head is light and slightly fizzy with a very slight (but noticeable pinkish hue). Some head and lace, but the noisy carbonation is the most obvious part of the pour.
Some very light fruit and funk in the nose.
The tastes are quite strongly acidic and the fruit is very reserved. There is a touch of funk but again it is very light. The whole thing seems more like acidic fruit than much else. The carbonation lingers. This is not really a Lambic, nor does in feel like a Saison, nor does it feel like a Wild Ale – it’s really a pretty interesting combo of all of the above.
It’s pretty easy on the palate and in terms of its drinkability. A nice beer and one that you could perhaps present as an example of something outside of the norm to non-BA’s. The funk and the acidity drop off a touch as the beer warms and as the palate gets used to the combo.
Quite tasty. Nice ABV too.
