Poured from tap into a tulip. Pours a nice dark orange/gold color with a very frothy head.

Very good aromas of spices, funk, navel oranges and a good amount of citrus notes as well. Good depth, not as funky as I would expect given its called a gueuze.

Medium bodies with a nice feel, but lacking on the mid a slight bit. It does have a very nice dry finish to it with a lot of flavors of spice, citrus, and funky notes.

It's not really a gueuze. It's the little sumpin wild aged in wine barrels. As a gueuze it doesn't fully hit, but it is a very good wild ale.

Serving type: on-tap

Hazy light-gold color with an off-white head.

Banana oil, yellow flowers, yeast, ground wheat, hay, citrus.

Citrus, pine sap, stirred yeast, mint.

Medium- bodied with a mild hop bitterness that leaves a very clean finish on the palate.

Really an odd beer. It wants to get there, but ends up being a shadow of the style.

On tap at the brewpub.

A- yellow gold, slightly hazy, has decent lacing and a good appearance.

S- fresh banana yeastiness, straw yeast, some malt in the background but mostly light with some floral character.

T- slight bitterness, subtle yeatiness, could be more flavour forward. Pretty respectable though.

M- pleasant, slight carbonation, refreshing and has a solid crisp finish.

Nice drinking saison, but far from the most interesting one I've tried, pleasant but not inspiring.

What a weird beer. Never had anything like it. Pours a cloudy yellow, with thin white head. Solid lacing though. Aroma, some might call it convuluted, some might call it complex, I tend to lean towards the 'all over the place' descriptor. You get farmhouse, a perfumy kind of fruit, and brett moreso than specific gueuze lambic like sourness or fruit notes. Lots of white wine type grape and oak qualities in it as well. Seems like belgian yeast phenols at the same time as well.

Taste, sourness is much lighter than most gueuzes, again, this doesn't really seem to be a gueuze, but nonetheless, you call it that, its gonna be compared with all other gueuezes. The perfumy flowery funk isn't offensive, its like being in a garden.

I dunno, its kind of like its really good for a saison, underwhelming for a gueuze.

Tried this at the brewpub in Petaluma. From notes.

Pours a cloudy hay colored with a wispy white head. A bit of lace sticks to the glass. The aroma is tart and very lightly funky. Some biscuity sweetness shows in the nose as well. The taste is lemony and moderately sour with some earthy bitterness and a little bit of brett funk. Field berries also add to the mix. The mouthfeel is pretty full bodied with an active carbonation. Sourness in the finish lasts a short while.

This is a nice America Wild Ale imo. Sour but well balanced with malt sweetness. The funk could be stronger. Still great, and I'm sure age will be awesome for it.
