Bottled 11 July 2006

Pours a mostly clear light copper with only a half finger of off-white head. Relatively subtle aroma is comprised of lemon and light funk. Definitely not the most complex aroma, but pleasant enough. Similarly, the taste is somewhat light and very refreshing, with lemon again leading the way, along with some very mild funk. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a semi-dry finish. Overall, a very refreshing gueuze, though nowhere near the complexity of the better blends. Still, I would have this again when in the mood for a lighter version of the style, and the price point is good as well.

Poured from a 12.7oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a goblet in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live. First ever time having a gueuze, so I'm excited. Bought in Missoula for $6.99. Brewed April 26, 2012.

A- One-finger white head with active carbonation and large bubbles. Retention is relatively low considering how active this head is. Hazy orange color that light scatters while coming through. Wild looking beer.

S- The first thing that jumps out with this beer is the wild notes. It has sourness and a distinct vinous aroma as well. Red wine, tartness, tannins, and limes. Citrusy but in a dark, sour way. Very interesting aroma on this beer.

T- A dry sort of sourness. Tart without being overly acidic. Clean flavors with a smidgen of leaveover at the end. On second taste, even tarter than before. I love myself some sour beers too, but altogether not as complex as the aroma.

M- Dry on first taste that cascades into a wetter feeling beer on the outside of the mouth before finishing dryly. Very unusual.

O- I'm glad I got to try this beer, thanks to the bottle shop I scored it in down in Missoula. Good all around, but I'm sure Cantillon has better examples of the style.
