look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
375mL green glass pry-top with BBD End 09-2015.
Appearance: Pours a pale tan with very little white head. Looks like half tea half lemonade. No lacing or spotting on glass. Poured into Moinette goblet.
Nose: Sour peach, lemongrass, tea/lemonade half & half, powdered drink mix, dried reeds.
Palate: Immediately sour. Medium/light bodied with a nice, mostly smooth texture. Flavors of lemon zest, lime juice (with pulp), dried bamboo, pale green tea, lemonatta. Long, tart finish with some earthy lemon white pepper notes.
Notes: A great introduction to what gueuze should taste like. Not the most textured example, but a really tasty beer for the price. Needs food and beginners should prepare themselves for how sour this beer is.

4.25/5 rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Aroma: Tart, sweet.
Appearance: Hazy amber, not much head.
Flavor: Tart and sour up front, once sourness passes over palate get a nice peach/plum flavor, almost like a sour plum wine.
Mouthfeel: Medium, a little thick for a lambic, not as dry as a lambic should be.
Overall: Pretty good beer, not overly sour has a good fruity tart mix going on. I prefer a dryer less fruity gueuze than what this offers. a little too much like a sour plum wine for me.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
