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.
