Our take on a gueuze-style ale, this intensely tart and funky beer combines three different vintages of our barrel aged sour blonde ale.

A lot of grass / hay on the nose along with the expected stinging citric and a very distant tart vinegar, taste is strong on the dry citrus, doesn't pop upfront with the tart /sourness...it is present, but not overwhelming. Mostly lemon tart. Finishes with some latent acidity, similar to Duchess but not as lingering.

A delightfully sour punch in the face. Those who can take the hit and enjoy tart lambics will relish the complexity of funky farmhouse meeting green apple. Too tart for my taste but a well crafted beer none the less.
