look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a cloudy lemon drop yellow color with a nice white cap, bubbles and light lacing

S: Immediate sour lemons, hay, and a big musty horseblanket

T: Lemon and funkiness whop the palate but neither really compete, just meshed well and there is a ton of flavor. It has a dry, acidic sting on the back with more lemon, hay and funk

M: ThWell carbonated, light to medium body, loads of taste on the mouthfeel. This beer is tasty until the very end.

O: Exceptional. I enjoyed every drop and happy to pay the hefty price for the beer and will do so again. Very tasty and a beer that Farmhouse and Gueze lovers can applad.

Don't know the bottle #, not labeled that way. The bottle is signed individually. Poured into a Duvel snifter.

A: Very golden appearance, light ring, seems light on the yeast.

S: Pears, citron, yeasty, sourdough (ya, sourdough)

T: Great Lambic, fantastic sour.

M: light carbonation, should impove with age as all lambics do.

O: Very nice sour/lambic...very light, barnyard aromatics. A worthy beer for the $27 tag.

Poured this at a good temperature with a small, foamy, off-white head that quicly subsided. Color is a clear, straw amber with a dozen or so bubble trails. Aroma is a very volatile blend of yeast, oak, leather, fruit, bit of malt. Flavor's like nose, yeast and carbonic tang unite up front and provide a zesty backdrop for the fairly dry bitter other qualities. Body and carbonation are perfect for the style and good burps too. Finish is fairly long, satisfying like a good brut champagne, and has a wisp of alcohol warmth. Excellent beer!
