2.75/5  rDev -23.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Chilled 37.5cl corked bottle with sealed cap and foil wrap around the bottle top. Poured into a sniffer glass. Beer has been bottled for a little over 12 months.

Pours with a very dark golden tone of a tea with very little, if any, hazing. Poured a 3 finger head that was very reluctant to give itself up as it sustained at least 2 fingers for several minuted before fially settling on a thick surface coating and slight lacing.

Initial aroma is defined by sweet notes. Weak pineapple juice with obvious funkiness and a certain degree of barnyard/agricultural aroma.

Once again, in the mouth this is immediately aroused by sweetness dominated with sugar and reconstituted fruit juice. Fruit peel and fruit cake characteristics are an easy one to pick up but it is lost when the flavor mellows to the point in which you expect to notice a barnish funky after taste, only problem is those elements don't burst through the surface, instead just complicating the initial tastes.

This is definitely lively in the mouth with an active degree of carbonation. This level is either created by or enhanced by the sugar-ish sweet fruit that underlies it taste. Definitely not a heavy beer by any stretch of the imagination which, of course, is to be expected with this category.

Good Gueuze offering but if your after a style defining example, perhaps look elsewhere.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Full of fine sediment. Deep golden body and not much of a head, which is white.

S: Sherry and cider.

T: Cider mostly, then some sherry. Has a sort of toasty, oaky quality, like that of tequila. The vinegar is not so strong. Sherbet in the aftertaste. Not overly sour or dry but quite acidic.

M: Soft but lively effervescence. Slightly sticky but pretty light.

O: Enjoyed it more that any other lambic I've had to date.
