4.49/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Imbibed at OG on 8/1/13.
Pours a cloudy, hazy metallic gold with less head than what i would expect considering the style. Lots of lemon and flowery nectar in the nose. Fruit is prevalent as well: strawberry, blueberry, with some spice such as thyme and basil. Funk makes an appearance as it warms. Barnyard is most evident in the funkiness with a hint of curdled milk. Flavor starts with a flash of vinegar, then tartness lasts with that trademark Belgian pils flavor. The berries join the malt, but its more of a dried fruit, like cranberry or golden raisin. The feel is slightly viscous with an ultra dry finish, making my mouth pucker even more.

This is a great sour, but I've had better gueuzes. I always want more sweaty, funky flavors and aromas out of a gueuze. The hops only come through in aroma and flavor, not much bitterness, which is an awesome way to do it considering the style. I love that I dont get any clove or banana. This is a totally different Belgian in that sense. Its a great sour with many nuances. I'd get it in a bottle if it was priced well.

Serving type: on-tap

5/5  rDev +26.3%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Sunglow/light jonquil body with an isabelline/ivory head.

Aroma: Light fruit nose (persimmons, apples, and quince), anise, oak, and floral notes.

Taste: Much like the aroma, only 'earthier' with an interesting citrus undertone.

Mouthfeel: Tart, crisp, and refreshing with a good amount of carbonation; I actually thought of it as a weaker cousin of 'Deesko!' by 3F.

Overall: As a fan of MIkkeller, I was expecting nothing but the best, but this collaboration with To Øl had surpassed any and all expectations I had before trying this. In short, get this if you can - you'll not regret it.
