On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a slightly dark-ish straw yellow, with a small half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells quite funky and barnyardy, lots of Brett and lacto, big hay, some lemon. Horsey all around.

This tastes pretty similar to the aroma. Fairly mouth-puckering, with a wet haystack flavor, and a little bit of citrus. It definitely feels gueuze-like, but it feels slightly uninspired, and uninteresting. Doesn't seem all that complex, other than a big barnyard feel. It does taste pretty good, though, just wish there was a bit more.

This is fairly light bodied, with a highly carbonated and tart mouthfeel. It's a slow sipper due to the intense sourness.

This was alright, but far from the best sour I've ever had.

Poured from draught to a small tulip glass, muddy orange, with little head or lace.

Lemon and funky aroma with light pepper.

Decent tartness and acid, some faint sweetness. Citrus, and No real finish.

Light body, no alcohol, crisp dry and highly carbonated.

While other gueuze have more everything, the freshness is enjoyable.

2012 Vintage. Drink after 2 years,
Good smell of lambics, oak, green apple, lemon and white wine
In mouth, it's very smooth, not too sour. Aromas of fermented apples and grapes coming from this smell of white wine. Bread taste comes in final
Short bitterness. Great gueuze overall

375 ml bottle poured into a teku glass.

A- Deep golden, with some haze. Head is white, but doesn't retain well. Some lacing is left behind.

S- Tart apple and some berry, nice and acidic. A faint funk, and a faint oak aroma.

T- Tangy acidity, some apple sweetness. A little funk, and I get a little bit of a wheat note.

M- Bright, light body with some snappy champagne carbonation. Great dry finish cuts all that tang and sweetness off so well.

O- Love the finish to this beer, and the overall feel. However, I think this lacks depth in flavor compared to others. It's tangy, it's sweet, but not a lot more. Could be primarily a young lambic in the blend? Still wonderful.
