Bottle pour for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some acidic and fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic finish on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

750ml bottle into a tall tulip
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with four fingers of head on a very careful pour. This beer is unbelievably carbonated - lots of bubbles floating from the bottom of the glass. Retention is truly amazing - I get a finger of foam that sits there the entire time I drink the beer.
S: Lemon zest, wheat, and ginger upfront, though none of these flavors are overly strong. Behind this I get some musty funk, but it's in the background for sure.
T: Much more sour than the aroma let on, I get quite a bit of lemon and guava sourness. The beer stays very well balanced between dry and sour, though.
M: Moderate thickness with strong carbonation, though not as distracting as I thought it'd be based on the appearance.
O: A flavorful, well balanced gueuze. Solid, but not extraordinary.

Review from notes.
A: Pours a slightly hazy peach color with a smallish white head on top. Decent retention with a little bit of lacing on the sides.
S: On the musty/funk side with less of a tart/sour aroma. Some straw and barnyard aromas with a bit of lemon and oak.
T: A flip from the aroma with a more sourness. Lemon rind, faint green apple, and some vinegar. Still some light funky/brett and barnyard flavor.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, rather dry finish.
O: A pretty good gueuze, would seek it out again as well as the other Timmermans gueuzes.

From 09/27/12 notes. Picked up a bottle of this at the Whole Foods on Bowery in NYC a few weeks ago. Bottled on 17/04/12, poured from a 750ml bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware.
a - Pours a hazy bright yellow color with one and a half fingers of fluffy white head and high carbonation evident. Head lasts for 1 to 2 minutes and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Looks pretty good.
s - Smells of funk, very acedic, light citrus, oak, some brett, and some oranges. Very nice nose; it is super funky.
t - Tastes of funk, vinegar, sour fruit and sour citrus, oak, very acedic, earthy notes, orange, and some bready malts. Taste is not as funky as the nose but is much, much more sour. Again, nice.
m - Light body and high carbonation. Very dry and acedic mouthfeel.
o - Overall a really nice funky and tart gueuze. Nose is funkier and the taste is tarter, but I liked it quite a bit. Would certainly buy this again.

Pours a very pale, hazy straw gold with a finger of wispy starch white head. Great lacing.
Subtly funky on the nose... lemongrass, wet hay, wheat, slight citrus qualities, very smooth.
Very refreshing - sweet and tart, fresh lemonade, white wine, lingdonberries, rhubarb, very bright, crisp.
I was surprised by this one. Good stuff.

Produced on 17/04/12
A: Pours a very hazy medium golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a huge three finger tall white head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of tart light fruits with some lemon/citrus, hay, and light to moderate amounts barnyard funk. Nice complexity and very enticing.
T: I just wish there was a little more tartness to the flavor of this beer than there is... Light to moderate flavors of fruit tartness with lighter notes of lemon/citrus, funk, and acidity. Very light vinegar hint.
M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp with some acidic prickliness and dryness in the finish.
O: Easy to drink. especially for the style - this would be a good beer for someone to get started in this style due to the light amount of tartness. Very refreshing and even sessionable (probably the only beer in this style that I have said that about). Enjoyable and I would be happy to drink this one again.

3.73/5 rDev -5.6%
A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and poured with a massive three finger high bright white head that took a long time to die down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately aromas of barnyard funk in the nose along with some notes of lemon.
T: This beer is rather tart and has flavors of lemon citrus, hay and a light to moderate amount of sourness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: Even with a very careful pour, pouring this resulted in approximately 90 percent head and 10 percent beer. It’s quite easy to drink and is especially refreshing when compared to other beers in the style.

Appearance: Light gold/straw. Lively carbonation. Head is bright-white, extremely bubbly, and creamy. Carbonation keeps the head retention up. Some vestiges of lacing. Slight haze.
Smell: Hay, yeast, and lemons. Big grassy component. Mild earthiness. Yeast drops big hits of clove, ripe banana, and even a touch of bubblegum. It's like someone hit a tripel with some wild yeast. Musty. Grass and yeast.
Taste: Lemon flesh. Tart citric bite. Some nice layers of grass, hay, and damp earth. Mild wheat tang. Pale malts. Delicate with a biting layer of tart. A touch of oak with a building lactic sourness. Mild fruitiness, something akin to apples and grapes.
Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing. Crisp and touch dry. Relatively clean finish with a tiny bit of seltzer on the finish.
Overall: Bright and delicious.
Smells like a funky tripel, but drinks like a well-blended and delicate gueuze. It's definitely something special. I'll probably round up another couple bottles before it disappears.

Big fizzy head fades quickly hazy golden yellow orange color.
Nose light tart fruity and lemon hint of funk and sweet malts, light bready yeast, little lactic acid.
Taste big carb, fluffy malts, tart lemon sour fruit and light wheat grass, little funk, very dry. A bit of lactic acid and juicy tart fruit throughout. Tons of carb, little bitter and fairly tart. Finish is dry still, long tartness lingering, little funk and lactic acid.
Mouth is med to lighted bodied, tons of carb, bit of acid tingle.
Overall pretty nice, nice acidity, nice funk, good tart fruit, dry, tasty, but a little yeasty. it's a fairly good gueuze but not phenomenal compare to many of the others you can get for about the same price.

Pourde from 750 ml. Bottle into tulip glass. Poured a hazy yellow with a generous head. Disspated rather quickly. Minimal lacing
Smell is tart, lemons, pickles,
Taste is sour to the max. Quite possibly the sourest beer I have eve had, but no hint of vinegar flavor. Lemons, no hops to be found.
Mouthfeel would be my one drawback. It's almost like it's over carrbonated. It explodes when it hits your mouth. I see many burps in my future.
Overall I really enjoyed This beer. I love sours and this is the extreme version of a sour.

Bottle to Tumbler
750 Ml C/C
Purchased for $20 @ El Cerrito Liquor, Corona, CA
App- Its a very AAL looking beer but on top of that its got a big puffy head that gave way to lace, stick and cling. Very hazy and a good looking beer.
Smell- Its a gueuze for sure. Malty, wheat, sour and lactic all rolled into one. A good amount of lemon in this one with a bit of oak mixed in. Just a bit light all around.
Taste- I enjoyed this beer. This really has a taste that has more to offer than with regards to the aroma. Really had a ton of carry over from the nose with the lemons, white wine vinegar, and fruits.
Mouth- Its a good mix of a light medium with a soft body. A high carbonation was there with a bit of a white wine spritzer residual flavor.
Drink- Its a nice queuze but doesnt leave me saying OMG! Lacked a bit of funk but had a nice sour/lactic flavor. I think with time this could become amazing.

750ml bottle into a wine glass.
A: Pours a light hay color with a decent white head.
S: Very sweet and somewhat funky. Cherry flesh, horseblanket and wet wood, bright wheat and a bit of fruity acidity. Not what I was expecting from an oude gueuze but interesting enough.
T: Mild, fruit-heavy tartness hits the palate first - lemon, slight raspberry, coarse sugar, a bit of oak. The tartness is soon washed away by unmalted wheat and yeasty esters. The beer finishes like a domesticated Belgian pale ale with a bit of acid lingering.
M: Light-bodied and soft, with slightly overbearing and frothy carbonation.
O: This was decent enough to drink, but too much sweetness and a frothy mouthfeel detract from the experience. The pleasant funk in the aroma is nowhere to be found in the taste also.
