I'm trying to get into these Gueuze type beers lately, as I enjoy sour food items, like grapefruit, and sweet-tarts. This one just didn't really fly for me. I may need to give it a second chance.

Body is a perfect peach pulp in tone. Head is an easy two inches of crackling foamy light beige. Nose is super funky and full of interesting smells. Horse blanket, lime stone, and lemon zest all play very evidently. There is even a bit of soap playing here. With first sip you are almost shocked by how much is going on here. Initial mouth filling funk is spawned by citrus zest and stone sour dryness. As you drink the sourness rounds out a bit and becomes wonderfully dry and drinkable. Enjoyable and quite session-able.

A standard of the style, appropriately bubbly with a sharp tang at the beginning followed up by the dry tart citrus. Finishes very easy.

Bright orange color with a hazy look. White head with moderate retention and some lacing present.

Aroma of funky grains, fresh cut flowers and spices.

Flavor is dominated mostly by funky yeast. Slightly acidic with a lemon-like quality. Citrus flavors mixed in. Heavy on the spicy notes. White pepper comes to mind.

Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Coarse texture with a slightly dry finish.

Nice complexity but slightly off-balanced. I would like to see more focus on the sour notes as opposed to the funk and spices. Still worth a try.

Looks like a pale ale, ultra carbonated with a huge head that does not like to subside. Smells like funky sour cider. Very tart and effervescent but no easily descriptive flavor. Very interesting

Pours hazy gold (leaving sediment in bottle) not much head
Smell is funky
taste is layer upon layer of pure bliss, especially the lactic sour, then the funk, then some grapefruit, then back to the funk and it just keeps going, decently long finish.
light creamy body with plenty of carbonation creating a dry finish
really wasn't expecting a gueuze this good at the price I will be getting more soon!
