Note: Entered as a Lambic because that is the style that Sour Frog most closely resembles. It was served to me as a geuze, however, I do not think that it technically counts as a geuze in terms of blending.

Appearance: Poured into a La Chouffe glass at Belmont Station during Pucker Fest a piss gold color with great white lacing but oddly…no head. Appears filtered but I would guess that the dregs of this keg will be thick with yeast. Very carbonated…naturally…

Aroma: Wet hay, barn yard funk, lemon, melon, a shot of piss, and moldy lime.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Simply remarkable. The front and side palates hit with a tremendous sourness, more subdued then a big, unfiltered geuze but huge none-the-less. The middle palate and finish are malty of the pilsner variety. Some wheat may be present. Mild hay flavors play a role. The body is clean, crisp, and light over all. Lemon rind and musk melon are big.

Drinkability: I would have drank this all day but Fou Forne and massive glasses of La Folie were calling.

Not as sour or funky as its many of its Belgian counterparts but perfectly crafted. Yet another example of American ingenutiy at its best. Side note: I was told that this beer was brewed a few years ago by a brewer who is no longer with Rogue. As the story goes, he returned each month for over a year to test that this beer was maturing properly. This beer is rather aged. I heard 15 months and 2 years from different people while I was tasting it. I wouldn't have been surprised to hear that itwas brewed 3 or more years ago. It is quite mature.
