look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
750 ml bottle corked and capped. Bottled on 10 Aug 2012. Imbibed on 6 April 2013.
A- Cloudy dark gold or straw in color. Thin but lively barely off white head with good retention due to the very visible and active carbonation. Minimal lacing.
S- Sour, funky, fermented cabbage, stinky cheese, lemons past their prime, some grassy malty barnyard smells.
T- Definitely tastes very sour and finishes even more sour. There are some yeasty, estery, tart, lemon citrus and hard to pinpoint flavors. Almost reminds me of tonic water with lemon, or a rich dry champagne. It could also be compared to drinking a soured hard cider make with sour green crab apples. I'm assuming none of the flavors are off for the style, but they are a little intense and not quite to the liking of my palate. However, I am admittedly a neophyte to the Gueuze style.
M- Very fizzy and carbonated with a thin champagne like body. There are also some strong alcoholic fumes and flavors, especially during retro-olfaction.
O- There are some flavors and aromas here that are enjoyable, but others are off putting and not quite pleasant. Overall, it was an enjoyable new beer experience, as I am always excited to expand my beer horizons.

Appearance is a hazy yellow with minimal head.
aroma is funk, barrel, oak, and lemon
taste follows the nose with a tartness that's not overpowering.
Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation. Nice lingering tartness and dryness.
great beer. Perfect for introductory gueuze drinking.
