In honor of their tenth anniversary, Jim and Jason Ebel decided to release a bunch of specialty beers, one of them being their first lambic.

Project Opus is a promising start to what will probably be a series of lambics, seeing as how the Ebels are putting a barrel room in their new brewery to continue producing them.

This beer pours with a nice big head, and a sour cherry scent wafts out of your glass. The beer itself has some lovely burgundy tones, thanks to a nice amount of cherries.

This is definitely a lambic, with a strong sour cherry taste that spreads out flat in the front of your mouth. That’s a really nice feel and makes for a fine sipping beer.

It’s a great start to a new line from Two Brothers, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else they come up with.
