A: Golden with a slight chill haze that goes away leaving an beer with excellent clarity. The off-white, rocky head was quick to dissipate.
S: A grapefruit-like tartness with a nice solid Brett, barnyard funk dominate the aroma. The funkiness grows deeper as it warms. There are low malt and light fruity esters of white grape, pear and very low apricot.
T/M: The is a moderate bright acidic tartness with moderate malt and barnyard flavors that balance pretty well. This is on a light bodied beer with an effervescent moderately-high carbonation. There is a slight prickle that seems to come from the tartness and CO2.
O: A very nice Gueuze with a refreshing tartness and a light touch of fruitiness. It's has balance and I'd defiantly buy this again given the chance. Gueuzes are a rare treat for me so I'd best enjoy this on it's own and shared with some friends.

375ml bottle dated 11/13/12 in wine glass
Murky golden color with head reducing to ring of clumpy lacing. Light floral, fruity and bready malt aromas with some sourness. Taste is some bright fruit with moderate sourness. Some bready malt (oxidation?) which lingers unpleasantly on the aftertaste. Relatively thin and light mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Not very complex but refreshing and drinkable despite the aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not a great gueuze.

On tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville NC
A- Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small foamy white head, leaving just a ring around the glass
S- dried hay, ripe pear with some woodsy funk
T- dry and puckering with notes of lemon peel and grape skin, finishing bone dry with more sour grape notes
M- light and spritzy body with a crisp and dry finish
O- A good beer that I'm glad I got to try on tap, nowhere near the complexity of some other gueuze's, but would make a good into to the style
