Pours out a bright yellow and light tangerine type of color not unfamiliar to those who like their ipas awesome. White head on the top, plenty of carbonation in the right dose. Doesn't retain the head for shit. so what.
Aroma was plenty tart, lemon forward, some chalky brett notes.
Good oaky and big time sour presence, plenty of tartness. Nothing unique here, tastes a lot like most blonde wilds/gueuze kind of stuff, heavy on the lemon, a fractional amount of other citrus (peach, grapefruit, apricot maybe), but mostly tart ass lemon, and why reinvent the wheel, this stuff is solidly reliable. Plenty acetic, but I'm all about that, so its pleasing me and not coming off at all like vinegar. Very crisp mouthfeel, gotta love that, yet gets some grassy notes on your palate at the same time.
I dunno, some people think Bruery's sours are lacking, I think they've done really well. You just know the name and the association with a traditional gueuze is gonna drive some people up the wall, so hats off to the Bruery, anytime you get someone's traditional panties in a wad, you know you're providing some solid entertainment, so thank you for a good beer and a good entertaining read sometimes.
Drank at Layne's UFC ppv (Dos Santos/Velasquez).
