4.13/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
light orange brown with a very nice three finger head of lace and a good amount of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Nice retention only gradually let the head fade away, what was left was a very nice set of concentric side glass rings of lace. Smell was very sour, lots of grapes and other fruits. A bit light on the nose before the sour wrath kicks in. Flavor was very full and robust. Nice yeast filled flavor wrecks your taste buds but calms down considerably on the finish. A huge rush of sour fruit than kicks into overdrive and puckers your lips through the finish. This was a wonderfully unique brew that had a very good flavor and a light fruity feel that really made it shine. I could see why it is rated so high, as it is quite different then anything I had tried in the past.

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
