3.58/5 rDev -8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Bottles on: 2010 01 20. 375ml capped bottle poured into a palm tulip, close to 50 degrees. I like the foil around the neck, but I'm a little bit let down there is no cork. I'm a sucker for corked guezes...
A - Dark copper orange. Nice white fluffy head that dies down to one finger. Well carbonated. Classic gueze-look
S - Oak, apples, lemon, some spice and a little bit of funk. Very well balanced aroma, and the oak and musk seem to be fairly dominant over the fruity notes.
T - Sour apples and lemon, with some oak and spice. Mouth puckering tartness. Not as much funk as I would have liked.
O - This is well balanced in all the right areas. This was also priced pretty well at $7. A great entry level gueze to try along with a cuvee rene. I've been drinking more and more lambics now through, and I'm just really craving the funky brett notes.

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.
