Bottled on Feb. 1, 2008.

a - pours a very clear deep amber color, large ivory head with decent retention and great lacing

s - very tart and sour on the nose, you can tell this one is going to assault your palate, very complex funky aromas, musty with bright lemon and grapefruit notes, granny smith apple, some wheat

t - powerful punch of tart citrus mixed with wheat up front, sour apple and lemon sourness engulfs the mid-palate, finish has some barnyard funk notes and a lingering tartness that just sits on the palate for quite awhile, very dry finish

m - medium-bodied, lots of carbonation, very active in the mouth, quite dry

d - intense beer that's not easy on the palate, but so well-crafted and complex that you have to keep on drinking

Awesome gueuze that's a must-try for anyone who likes sour ales. Crazy complexity that my description just can't do justice.

Live review of the 12.7 oz bottle dated Dec 10, 2009.
A: Bright clear golden with constant bubbes and a sticky constant half-finger white head.
S: Musty rustic green apples, noticeable brett., sourdough bread base.
T: The underripe apples with lemon and vinegarette and green leafy hops transforms into a dry rustic beer that leaves sticky sweet/sour apple juice on your teeth.
M: Medium body with a frothy carbonation changes to dry with the stickiness on the teeth.
O: Solid. I'd recommend this gueuze.
