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: The beer is relatively clear orange yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin head that died down, leaving thin lacing on the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with notes of funk.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but is more complex with additional notes of oak from the barrel aging.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and rather tart on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has nice complexities in the taste and is relatively easy to drink compared to other beers in the style because it isn't that funky.

A - Gold tangerine body with lively carbonation. Fine white head pours well but settles quickly with low lace.

S - Distinctively sour nose. Lemon acidy, dry grass, and tart peaches.

T - Wow. Bracingly sour. Lemon, copper pennies, peach pits, honey, citric acid, and apple sour warheads.

M - Bright, medium frame. Nice carbonation. Clean, lingering finish.

O - Imho with the straight, aggressive sourness the beer drinks more like an American Wild than a Sour Belgian Blonde, but it's stellar in either case.

Poured a golden orange with large head that dies at good pace and left lace patches. Aroma is mostly sour, funky and tart, but to be specific there seems to be a tart citric hop edge and/or some sour tropical fruits (something akin to pear or apricot or mango). I get some of this sour apple/pear and apricot/mango fruit feel and then also this sharp, crisp acidic citrusy sourness and a whole bunch of funk. Easy drinking, light bodied, has good amount of carbonation that leads to sharp finish. Pretty taste beer and a little sweeter than average gueze.
