look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased for thirty dollars last weekend, also had two pints of it there along with a few samples at the Stone Sour Fest the week before that, opened last night with Dane since he had not had it yet, poured into my Duvel tulip glass, color is a golden orange with some lighter shades, one inch aggressively bubbly white head, not much retention, pretty weak lacing but typical of the style, aroma consists of oak tannins, lemons, oranges, tangerines, horse blanket, funkiness, wild yeast, white wine, and vinegar, flavor starts off with a salty tart bite full of citrus, some malts in the middle that are bit crackery and offset the tartiness well, finish is pretty dry but has a good amount of funk too, warms up with green apples and sour citrusy fruits, slightly dry, citrusy, and funky mouthfeel, medium bodied, highly carbonated, taste lingers well for a gueuze, easy to drink and refreshing, crisp and light feeling, no alcohol in the taste, have been waiting for this one for years since I first laid my eyes on these barrels and it did not disappoint, it should develop quite a bit with age too, not quite a gueuze you would expect from Belgium but a quality American interpretation, will be drinking again, recommended

4.81/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

This beer is amazing. The appearance was golden and brite, slight orange, crisp with very little head only brief lacing that didnt linger at all. Carb bubbles were present throughout.
The smell was sweet & sour with a good funk, slight notes of tart apple and pear. I thought after smelling that this was going to disappoint honestly.
The taste though, wow. Tart apple, granny smith, bright farmyard funk, the taste lingered as well and was slight bile lemon and finished with sweet spice notes and some orange grapefruity effervescence. This taste for me was perfection. Even as I cherished the last couple sips that had warmed it was even more complex with some malt, bread, salt and dank balanced funk. So good, better on the cold side but I cherished it all through the pour...
The mouth was crisp and dry, the tart wets the cheeks afterwards and it lingered in a good way
I really was close to a 5 on this beer, its definitely in my top 5 and left me craving desperately for another
