Opened at a good temperature to a serious pop and poured with a mammoth off-white foamy, billowy head that quickly settled and no lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is an intense blend of yeast, citrus peel, and funk. Flavor's much like nose, tang and wild yeastoids up front, citrus, yeast, malt in the back. Barest hint of sweet. Body/carbonation are perfect, especially for style. Finish is like flavor, good burps, tang lasts forever, slightest alcohol warmth. Can't say it's very drinkable, more sippable. Excellent gueuze.

(Served in a tulip glass)
Bottled 17/04/12

A- This beer pours a clear golden yellow with a stream of quick tiny bubbles pluming to the surface. The sound of the fizzing snow white head quits as the foam fades to a thin broken film.

S- The great earthy smell of dampness has some bright tartness with some soft hay notes in the finish. Some white cheese character from Brett comes through as it opens along with a dried oak boards note and some wet fresh plaster aromas.

T- The gentle tartness has some slight fruity hints that turn more into pineapple character as it opens. There is an acid note that is mostly lactic but not harsh and grows stronger and brighter as the beer opens but stays mellow with some rhubarb character to it. The bright tartness lingers for a moment after each sip.

M- The full fizz bites the tip of the tongue but there is no astringency or alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a light bright well blended gueuze that leans a bit more toward the young lambic but in a good way. Lots of soft layers that is very drinkable and sessionable aswell. Worth the price of $16 dollars.

Bottle dated 17/04/12. Drunk on June 27, 2013.

A: This poured a clear (first half of the bottle, hazier for the second half) light gold with tons of rocky white head.
S: It smelled like exceptionally funky oak and dry horse blanket, with some sour milk and vinegar and a little unripe apricot and lemon zest.
T: It tasted like funky oak and earthy horse blanket, with some tart vinegar and citrus zest and a little copper hops and unripe apricot. It had a string and lasting dry sour aftertaste.
M: It was watery with tons of carbonation. Nice light and bubbly body.
D: This was a great gueuze, but not for the faint of heart (or anyone who isn't already a fan of this sour style). It had wonderfully bold but complex scent and taste. It showed an old world character that most modern sours can't replicate. The body was perfect for the style, helping make it easier to drink despite the intense finish. Would likely age for decades, and would probably improve with extra time. Impressive.

Bottle: Poured a medium slightly hazy yellow color lambic with a huge foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of light barnyard notes with nice tart notes and some very light oak. Taste is a nice refreshing mix between notes of tart and oak with a mix of green apple and light barnyard notes. Body is about average with great carbonation. Not the most complex lambic out there but a thousand time better then the other crap they brew. Somewhat reminiscent of Girardin as a very refreshing lambic though lacking the complexity.

750 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of Kevin, thanks again for sending this rarity from overseas, I took this to the Bruery during their 1st Anniversary celebration, it seemed to go over well too, poured into a Bruery tulip glass, reviewed from notes

A-Golden yellow color, one inch aggressively bubbly white head with some decent retention, some legs but no lacing
S-Lemon juice, funkiness, brett, yeast, toasted grains, oranges, oak, grapefruit, and wheat
T-Starts off with a big tart welcome, citric acid and fruits in the middle, finish is both sour and dry, stays that way even as it warms, just gets more fruity in the long run, great tartiness and sour pucker
M-Citrusy, dry, acidic, and sour mouthfeel, thin to medium bodied, way too much carbonation, aftertaste lasts a long time
D-Decent drinkability but quite acidic, young and could mellow with some cellaring, refreshing, sparkling-wine like which makes it harder to get down if it was not as carbonated, still pretty drinkable

This cork came off more fiercely than any other one I have ever seen, thank goodness it was not pointing at anybody, only lost four to five ounces thankfully, originally I was told this was an older vintage which is partially true, it is an older lambic but it was bottled this year for the celebration of Spontaneous Fermentation in May, it was made in very limited quantities and will only be brewed one time, wish I had more as I think this one will be even better once it has some age under its belt in the bottle too, recommended
