I had this at Moeder Lambic served chilled in the appropriate glassware.
The color is deep golden with amber peachy hues with thick haze and fast rising bubbles visible with thick white head with fine bead and speckles of lace stick. The aroma has a strong funkiness with floral accents and light lemon/herbal fragrance with mild hint of wood and slight lactic scent with tangy juicy odor. The feel is tangy, dry and highly carbonated with moderate sour and light lactic acidity in the middle wtih dry and woody texture in the finish with subtle sour texture lingering after the swallow.
The flavor is pretty intense with a dry tart tangy and puckering sour yet refined flavor with wood and lemony lactic element yet malt is slightly balancing as it evolves with a mild sweet/fruity combination of wild yeast in the flavor. The taste has a subtle earthy funk in the background adding to the complexity of flavor with a mineral dryess perhaps from the high carbonation as it finishes tart. The flavor is great and so is the drinkability- I never had the bottle, but now that I have had the draft version I would like to try it. This is a wondeful Gueuze with subtle and drinkable qualities in every way.

Lots of tangy sour vinegar qualities in this with some honey and Apple cider on the nose. The flavor is more white wine, champagne, Apple cider vinegar, straw or barnyard grain, Apple and pear. The feel is very light, with what seems to be no carbonation, much like a cider.

$3.50 on draft @ Duckworth's Park Rd - Charlotte NC.
Looks the part - straw colored brew with a lot more carbonation than I expected, massive cloudy head and a tad of oily lacing lingering on the now empty glass. The nose is very floral, charred wood and lemon are imminently present. The taste is surprising, not as tart as I'd hoped and very dry, lot's of wood there. Interesting how much pepper is present. Very nice beer that fell short of my expectations. But I'll definitely give it another shot down the road.
