Pure Project Lief Review

San Diego lambic is officially a thing, because this beer, made in the traditional method of Belgium lambic, hits all the right notes. It’s tart, citrusy, spontaneous-yeast-spicy, and even a little salty, which we'll attribute to mountain air — the wort for this spontaneously fermented ale was inoculated with wild yeast and microorganisms during a lambic camping trip to Mt. Laguna. A blend of one-, two-, and three-year-old spontaneously fermented ales aged in oak ultimately comprise this beautiful blend, which is one we hope to taste again very, very soon.
