750 ml bottle at fridge temp into a tulip. 2013 vintage.
Pours out a really nice bright light golden color. Surprisingly the first pour was rather clear and it retains a nice white head for the first half of the glass leaving a bit of lace as well. A nice looking beer.
Big lemon citrus acidity, wet hay, barnyard funk, Brett comes out a lot more as it warms. lactic. It's all there.
Intense flavor when compared to the aroma. Big sourness that lingers well into the finish as well as a nice lactic twang. Big lemon citrus, slight wet hay and barnyard funk. I really enjoy the finish to this beer
Light bodied, but the sourness and lactic qualities of this beer really play a big part in destroying the palate. Higher carbonation of course.
An impressive beer. Almost hard to believe this comes from America. But really not for the beginner sour drinker. Worth getting a few for the cellar.

Clear orange with a small to moderately-sized near-white head that quickly recedes. This beer doesn't have a lot of carbonation, especially given the noted style of gueuze. Leaves the glass nearly clean, though it leaves small spots of juicy stick. Only average.
The aroma is perhaps the best aspect of this beer, though it's not anywhere close as complex, enjoyable, or funky as Belgian examples of the same style. Some definite lemon and sharp citrus notes, bit sour character, and some definite funk (sweaty sock) character.
The flavor is nice, though it simply lacks depth. In one of the most complex tasting styles, this one doesn't have similar depth. That being that, what's here is delicious and certainly worth drinking. Sharp, bright, and sour lemons and perhaps some apricot, sock sweat funk, and moderate-to-high sour character. Dry finish.
Medium bodied with extremely low carbonation. Watery after less than a half hour in the glass. This beer's true failing, if it has one.
Good, and affordable, but not great.
