The beer pours a very light copper color, bordering on light orange and dehydrated piss yellow. A fizzy white and rocky head appears and quickly fizzles away like a soda, leaving a light scrim and ring on the glass. The beer’s body is very cloudy, with haze hiding all of the other side of the glass from view. Carbonation bubbles are a constant stream running up from the bottom of the glass. On the nose the beer smells richly funky, with spicy hay, light fruit leather, and heavy brett smells. Light smells of cherry are also present in the sweet fruit leather smell. The beer tastes sweet and fruity with wonderful barnyard funk in the beginning of the taste. Tart flavors are light and controlled, but lovely, and lemon notes definitely come through in the tart taste. The beer begins light grass and hay, moving into barnyard funk and light fruit leather before opening into lovely lemon characters and then moving into more barnyard hay and the supposed “horse-blanket” flavor. The aftertaste is grassy with nice hay notes and as it warms there are also notes of wheat spice and light banana in the esters. On the mouth the beer feels sharp with carbonation before mellowing into a medium to light body with nice tart puckering in the mouth. The mouth is left quite clean with only a slight scrim of saliva. Overall this is a solid gueuze, some nice barnyard character, and some great balance between the tart, sweet, and funky flavors. This beer is a success from Lindemans, with some great lemon characteristics. A must try for sour fans.
