Pale golden in color as I rolls into the wine glass. Rocky, thick bright white head slowly dissipates. Very clear, light carbonation. I like the corked and capped bottles: classy. From a distance this beer smells like apples. Very tart and sweet. As I bring it to my nose and sniff I smell a dirty, funky smell. I am in complete ignorance as far as what this beer is going to taste like because I have never had the style, and I haven't read much about this particular beer. I chose it because it was different. The flavor is wild (literally, lol). Very tart at the beginning with pure sourness. The sourness quickly transitions into a CO2 taste and then it is extinguished. I will have to keep sipping for a while before I can get my taste buds around this one. There is some malt way in the back under the sourness. I think the hops are similar to that of a nice dry saison. As the sips pass, it begins to take on a grapy taste. Lots going on here. Dry at the end. I will have to explore this style more in order to find relativity, but I think that this beer has been considered one of the finer examples of a gueuze.

I love Belgium.

3.96/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: clear golden with significant carbonation, sustaining, but with minor lacing
S: nice sour lemon and what I think is a Brett-influenced funkiness

T: muted version of the smell. Sour lemon hits first, but doesn't last or grow as I would hope. I can't quite place the "farmhouse" taste that comes in, hay/meadow/wood. There's a wine feel to it as well, late.
M: carbonation and a refreshing taste that has an earthy taste but isn't too dry

O: I was hoping for more tart bite throughout, but this beer did grow on me. The transition from sour to "regular beer" did take some getting used to, however.

Gosh-darn this is a refreshing beer. I enjoyed opening it-- the process is a little different, as one unravels the foil and then uses a wine-opener to release the petite cork. A lovely little process which enunciates the rustic element.

The smell is the only score that I did not give a perfect score on, not because it is a perfect example of the style, but because the rubbery scent was a little off-putting.

The brettanomyces is very playful in regards to the taste profile. Quite refreshing, and I would say that while this lambic geuze style is different from the traditional style of Rodenbach, I would say that both are equally excellent examples of a successful variation on a theme.

The previous beer I tried (Urthel Saisonniere) I put away in the refridgerator, perhaps to drink later, though probably not. This beer I will probably finish, just because of how good it tastes.

The finish is clean and elegant. The previous beer left a earwax taste in my mouth that lingered, but this beer has cleaned it away quite wonderfully, and now I taste almost cherry-like freshness amidst the sour after notes.
