Florida

4.4/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled February 2006, poured into a snifter

Pours up flat with no head, golden in color with a yeasty haze to it.

Aroma is super funky, I can tell it's going to be sour as hell. There's an undertone of sweetness to it but that's probably the funk playing tricks on me.

Taste is just as good as the aroma. Sour with lots of the usual funk that would be expected in a gueze. These lambics with no carbonation are interesting because it's just totally different. The first time I had them in that way I thought it was a flaw and a fail from the brewery not knowing it was supposed to be like that. I'd probably prefer a little more carbonation but this tastes great anyhow.

Mouthfeel is flat with a light body but it's supposed to be like that so I can't really complain or mark down. It works well with the beer cause it tastes great.

Really nice one and reasonably priced. Would definitely get it again.

Found this old review in my notes.

Bottled 1/12/10 -- Reviewed 3/1/14

A - Deep orange to dark brown, no head, no carb.

S - Sour candy powder, green apple and hay in the background.

T - Very little acidity, one of the sweeter guezes I've had. Borderline caramel. Slight touch of oxidation.

M - Completely dissipating and airy.

O - Mild, interesting variation to a more typical gueze style.

4.29/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Aptly named, this "snoozer" of a beer awakens from its oaken slumber to delight the senses with the mature and earhten character of oude unblended lambic with peps of younger and untamed acidity peaking through here and there.

With its dainty and sleepy foam that casually greets the rim, its muddled goldenrod color is tarnish and rusty with haze as the ale glows dimly from behind. With great impressions from the more mature lambic, its foam-stance and lace isn't all that to be expected.

Deep, earthy and musty, its leathery perfume takes the senses to notions of tangy limes, dried lemon, wafts of sea air, cellar-like must, cork, attic wood, weathered oak, horse hair and dry chardonnay. Its aromas alone are mouthwatering and jaw-tightening in anticipation of that first sip.

Its dry and tangy taste is mellow, smooth and elegantly malty with mild wheat with straw and stewn hay. While the acidic taste of citrus, vinous wine, cider and light vinegar are all met with oak, soil, brine, tobacco and leather; its sourness is subdued and feathery. With the blend of four vintages at work, the taste of the mature lambic takes precedence over that of the youthful.

Its dry and piquant texture is softened lightly with the wheaty foundation, Snoozer is mild, powdery and delicately tannic, as if fine sawdust. It crisp and clean finish begs for a quick return to the glass as there's ample acidity to strip the palate and refresh the taste buds with ease. Its mild alcohol warmth weaves into the tartness seamlessly.

Completely out of dormancy, this aged ale is alive once again with all the whimsical and elder characteristics from extensive aging; but sparing on the tongue-gripping sourness that often proves too much for the uninitiated. Its simply a gem of an oude lambic as much as it is a gueuze and should be seen as such.
