Bought a 750ML bottle of this from 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar in Lafayette Square (St. Louis), MO for $16.99. Poured from the gold foiled bottle around the cap and top into a Budweiser Holiday Tulip Glass. Has no sign of freshness date but has destroyed series of letters & numbers on the back of bottle in white.

Aroma- Starts with a nice sour aroma with a huge goaty background. Has a light oak aroma here also and this compliments the style COMPLETELY! Very good attributes.

Appearance- Pours a 5 finger, thick head that seems to last forever! A bit hazy but might have been from throwing the bottle around from the Wine Bar to the flat... Has a pale orange color body and has a ton of lace left behind. Can't get any better!

Flavor- Huge sour, upfront taste and then has nice malt sweetness next. Honey-like and gouty once again and doesn't seem to draw any negatives. No hop bitterness or even any taste for that matter. PERFECT Gueuze!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, VERY highly carbonated., Thirst Quenching but then a huge Puckering flavor at the end.

Overall Impression- This is now tied with one of my favorite Gueuze beers! Great qualities, sour, mouth puckering, and the goaty and malty characteristics are well blended. The only complaint with this one was the price... Will be looking to see if I can get a reduced price @ the Liquor store!

When I first broke into sours, this was the first beer that I tasted and it has left its mark. A literal assault on the palate, the tartness of this beer is for lack of a better word...amazing. A beautiful golden color invites you to have sip and get ready for a trip. Aroma of that leathery farmhouse funk typical of sours that makes most shy away. The taste of this beer is what defines gueuze styles for me, the fizzy, pounding tartness that does not let up and sticks with you long after your glass is empty.
Hands down a great beer, haven't tried it on tap yet but I'm sure it's great. This beer really makes me appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into this beer. One could look at the label and see from the bottling date that this beer has been aging for some time before it got to you. Try at least once.
