Beer Review: Lady Of The Woods

Reviewing the Lady Of The Woods from Cisco Brewers Incorporated out of Massachusetts.
Score: 83

Unknown vintage. Served in a snifter glass and enjoyed on 06/23/12 at the inaugural Chicago craft beer lovers meeting.

Appearance: Pours a golden urine-like color that is a little murky with a thin bubbly-ish ring around the glass of head. Below average lacing and retention. 3/5

Smell: Sour peaches and pears, a little bit of berries, lemon, oak and vinegar and greek yogurt. 3.5/5

Taste: Lemon, sour peach, oak and some lacto-y flavor. Very milk funk. Quite acidic. A little green apple flavor too. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, medium carbonation. Sweet-and-sour, dry mouthfeel. 4/5

Overall: Drinkable, but did not float my boat.

Recommendation: Sour heads will probably like this one, but it does not seem to be the kind of beer that would appeal to the casual beer drinker.

Pairings: Apples and honey.

Cost: $18.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
