12.7oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled on 10-01-20.
(A)- Pours a hazy golden orange color that produced a great fluffy white head with surprisingly good retention with plenty of lacing left behind.
(S)- A drier, almost floral aroma with a deep tart acidic lemon drop aspect. Hints at Brett and a mild hay/straw funk.
(T)- Wow, a seriously good tart and acidic lemon drop sour profile very much like the smell had. Lots and lots of that tart lemon with some white grape and golden delicious apple. Some hints at some Brett, but very subtle on the finish with some dry mildly funk hay.
(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. A potent, but welcomed sour acidic level. Smooth somehow despite it potency. It has a great feel to it.
(D)- I really could drink this one all day if it was not so sour, but I would not mind trying! This is a fantastic Gueuze definitely fitting for when you need that sour fix. Up there with some of the best.

8 oz. on tap at Toronado.
Golden with a bit of red, slight carbonation. Sour all the way through. Sour fruit nose. Good acidity up front with a bit of bite. Acidity mild, but noticeable. Tart middle and finish. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable, the balance between the tartness and fruitiness make this a very enjoyable drink.

Had this at the Hopleaf in Chicago.
Small corked and cegd bottle, it pours a hazy light golden brew with a nice off-white head that holds well.
Aroma is typical, very good if not astonishing, funky and leathery, fruity, woody and even somewhat sweet.
Light and easy to drink, it is quite tart and acidicupfront, refreshing, with a hint of sweetness to keep it from being very dry.
This was a suprisingly good gueuze, and it paired my beer mussels amazingly well.
