look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A - hazy, golden orange. Light carbonation. Pours just about a finger of head with little retention.
S - some lactic sourness/vinegar. Good bit of barnyard funk. Vinous notes as well.
T - pretty subdued sourness. I was expecting quite a bit more of a tart bit so I'm a little let down. Good amount of Bretty funk. There's an off astringent quality to the beer that is not wholly pleasant. Not particularly bad but there's a lot better out there in this category.
M - nice carbonation. Light to medium bodied.
O - this wasn't nearly as sour as I expected or hoped for. For someone interested in gueze's but not looking for anything too puckering, this is a nice option. Ended up finishing this off with some smoked Gouda and that paired nicely.

4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Silky hazy golden. Poured a massive false head that dissipated quickly. Left a thin continuous ring around the glass. Highly carbonated. Excellent color and super smooth consistency, but the head was the only downside.
S: Mild funky mustiness of old library books with grape and lemon lime zest.
T: Starts off with bright sweet sour lemon lime candy. Has a light saltine malt with a tangy white pepper. Sour green grapes. Bright tart green apple. Finishes with a white vinegar.
M: Thin light and extremely crisp. Mouth puckering with a salty dehydrating finish.
O: A little over exuberant on the sourness. Lots of complexity of both bright and mellow flavors, but you really have to work to get through all that tanginess.
