Hazy, opaque golden-orange-copper brew. Beautiful. Big, fluffy snow white head, with good retention and minimal lacing.

Sharp, tart aroma from the moment the pour begins. Light funk, as expected; straw; some citrus; sour, white wine-like vinegar. Earthy.

Flavor follows the aroma, with an added, noticeable earthy, dirt-like flavor. Funk in three directions (earthy, musty, and sharp), light citrus, wheat. Reasonably sour. I don't know if the burnt dirt flavor (smokey?) is a function of bottle, palate, or environment; it's not entirely unpleasing, but it's unexpected.

Nice puckering sour mouthfeel; medium overall. Certainly a sipper. Nice astringency.

This is far more funky and earthy than the Golden Blend I tried the other day, and it hurts the brew. It's a very good Lambic overall, but simply not as special, and not as good. Off of one bottle, I have to say this rates with a typical Geuze or Gose, instead of standing out as something particularly special.
