4.63/5 rDev +6.7%
Single 12.7 oz bottle
Best before 21/03/2022
A - hazy, golden amber in color, 1/8" white head with slippery lacing, nice effervescence
S - sour notes, light funk, green apples, citrus, white grapes,
T - sourness that puckers your cheeks, like a mouthful of sweet tarts, vinegar, green fruit, Brett, flavors I've only found in white wine,
M - very wet and thirst quenching, extreme acidity, puckering, crisp and refreshing
O - My first Gueuze that I recall. If this is how most of them are, I can see me hunting down more of this style. What a remarkable beer!

4.08/5 rDev -6%
Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Back label says best before: 21/03/2022.
A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a full two fingers worth of head that retains decently before slowly collapsing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a fluffy sheet of surface foam. Slippery lacing leaves clots behind on the glass.
S- Extremely bright aroma rushes into the nose and perks me up. Invigorating barnyard funk with lots of hints toward a sour flavor. There's that astringency that I get out of most gueuzes but it actually mingles with some lemon, cherry and white grape notes quite well.
T- Bold, sharp sourness in the flavor but it eases into a fruity complexity I've not witnessed in a lambic before. The astringency shoots up but then backpedals as the citrus notes take hold. Slightly vinegary and plenty of tart to keep the fans of the sour happy.
M- Dry and puckering but with a nice balance between that and some slick, thirst-quenching moisture. Lightish body and medium-high carbonation.
O- Finally! A gueuze I can really get down with! After having the overly intense Drie Fonteinen Oude Gueuze, I was hesitant to drop another $12-$15 on a little 12.7 oz. bottle of something I thought I might dislike. But I'm glad I took the risk as this is a very enjoyable beer. Not too sour, not too harsh. A great example of the style IMO.
