Assis Toi: It’s five o’clock somewhere…
Located on Barrington Street, Reynolds and the rest of the crew have a great devotion to beer in all its forms. In their infinite wisdom, they decided that a form that might work for me is a lambic beer.
Essentially, lambics are beers brewed with wild yeasts that are present in the air. In this case, it was an Oude Kriek Vielle, a fruit lambic made with cherries.
The instant I tasted it I understood it, or rather it understood me.
My brain didn’t register that I was drinking a beer – something generally malty, yeasty – but something dry and crisp, with a mild sourness in its finish, but not unpleasantly so.
