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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 2012/07/18 at 50 degrees into flute
Aroma of over-ripe fruit
Head small (2 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and partial layer
Lacing – none
Body golden, hazy
Flavor begins very sour with no malt sweetness. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl, just acetic acid and a little funk.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This is the most acidic gueuze I’ve ever had, a very high pucker factor.
