3.8/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Big froth of head rises upwards rapidly. Apple juice hues and champagne bubbles. Aromas are very dirty and earthy, with an extra funky barny aroma. Tangy apples and lemony tartness in the flavor--much cleaner (and less earthy) than the aroma would have led me to believe. Thin mouthfeel, no complaints about the carbonation. I'm ok with the thin mouthfeel as long as there's a full flavor. This gueuze fails to stick its sour flavors to my taste buds for very long. Bitterness lingers, and my mouth is watering ... but there's just a little bit missing. Tiny cap of froth and some layers of lace stick around.

3.75/5  rDev -4.3%
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.

Served in a Prairie teku

A - pours a hazy amber with chunk sediment. A timed white cap of foam sits on top.

S - funky, salty, minerals, soured fruit- apricots, white grapes, apples, strawberries, musty lemons

T - sour and salty permeate the palate, lemon and raspberry follow, acidic funk, soured stone fruit, the malts are encompassed with sour fruit and the beer finishes bright and snappy.

M - light body, light to medium carbonation, acidic mineral finish.

Bright, acidic, and funky character that blends well with the yeasty malts. This beer has has a strong presence of soured fruit. A nice example of my favorite style of beer.

3.43/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a orangish brown with minimal head and immediately dissipating lace. Aroma of damp hay, grape must, bready yeasts. Sourness is actually quite pleasant, theres an earthy dankness I can't quite get around, something like mushrooms having absorbed to much moisture. This taste gains in strength as the beer sits a little while. The crispness is refreshing, this beer is quite dry.
