look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Golden blonde colour, 1.5 fingers of white head, little in the way of lace. Smell is funky, acidic fruits, lemon and green apple, musty citrus underlying, oaky barnyard closer. Taste is sour upfront with a bit of lactic-cheese flavour like in the girardin white label though not as strong, funky musty fruits, lemony with a dry oak finish. Medium carbonation, dry, medium feel. Solid stuff, tasty and worthy of being a top tier offering of the style.

4.33/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

750 mL bottle purchased at Sunset Corners in Miami, FL, 2012 vintage (dated "2012, dec 7th), drank over an hour out of a hotel-style glass

A: 3/3 - golden-orange coloration, little clarity (cannot see or read through), initial frothy off-white rocky head settles into a 1/2 finger lacing with high retention, moderate legs

S: 10/12 - barnyard aroma predominates - wet hay, horsey and borderline enteric; some tart fruit notes too - acidic/sour lemon and lime; no malts, hops or alcohol on the nose for me

T: 16/20 - matches the nose nicely with lots of barnyard funk complexity throughout the taste profile; some gentle wheat and alcohol notes provide balance

M: 5/5 - moderate body, spritzy/champagne-like carbonation and some surprising creaminess provided by the high retention; one of the real highlights of this beer for me

O: 9/10 - expected this to be an excellent Gueze and Armand didn't disappoint with this blend; definitely worth the $22.99 price point and eager to try some homebrewed sours with 3F dregs

TOTAL - 43/50

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

big bottle into a tulip just for me. cork pops with a bang and it starts as a bit of a gusher. bottled on Jan 18, 2013. purchased about a year later and kept at cellar conditions.

A: pours a hazed orange hue. not cloudy, just some haze. head is fizzy and bright white. big. good retention and lacing. thick tufts.

S: a very horse-blanket filled aroma. really musty. such an inviting aroma. I can hear the micro organisms beckoning me to take a sip. its a little one dimensional in the sense that

T: earthy, musty, tart. acidic, but really not too intense. just enough to remain very drinkable and pleasant. there is a touch of sweetness right in the middle. honey like almost. however it is fleeting as the acidity takes back over again. no hop flavor or bitterness that I can detect. I am starting to get more oaky wood flavors as I continue to drink.

M: a vivacious carbonization. light to medium bodied brew.

D: overall a really fantastic gueuze. I can see why this is considered a benchmark for the style. that very classic, big barn yard aroma and flavor is all over this one and I like it.
