3.81/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a orangish yellow color. Strong haze makes it opaque. Some of an off white head that leaves some lacing behind.

Smell: sour green apples and grapes. And funky yeast

Taste: opens up with a kick of Brett yeast transitions into tart fruit. Grapes and green apples. This moves back towards a oaky Brett funk again.

Mouthfeel: a bit mouth puckering and leaves a nice thick coat on the tongue

Overall: a good tasty beer that will introduce anyone to the still. Not too much puckering and not too sour make it a pretty drinkable one

Serving type: on-tap

3.31/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice amber yellow with a decent hit. Good carbonation. Bottle indicates brewed in 2012. Smells like a typical lambic. Taste is typical sour but surprisingly without any hint of sweetness. Nice clean refreshing beer with a sour finish. Not a lot of substance. Lots of unfiltered goodies at the bottom of the bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

375ml bottle poured into Goose Island stemmed glass

Appearance: Pours a dark golden orange with 1+ finger of a white head that settles to a medium cap and collar. Body is lightly hazy with moderate visible carbonation.

Smell: Funk, green apple, musty,

Taste: Lemon, barnyard funk, pear, just a hint of oak.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high lively carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: Pretty nice gueuze. It doesn't measure up to Cantillon, 3F and some others, but considering the low price point (I think I got this for $3.99 per bottle) this is a great budget gueuze.

Serving type: bottle
