(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.

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a hazy light copper colour with no head.

S - Brett, sour grape and apple.

T - Plenty of woody notes to this one. The finish is slightly apple and nominal sourness.

M - Light body with low to medium carbonation

O - Not the best Geuze around but worth a hit.

Deep golden color; cloudy appearance. Opaque. Creamy 1-2 finger head when poured that fully dissipates quickly. Sweet and sour smell; made me want to drink the beer. Distinct smooth sour taste that progresses to a tangy citrus flavor with a dry tart finish. Very refreshing taste that I really enjoyed. Light to medium body with lots of light carbonation; almost champagne-like. Overall an excellent sour that is one of my favorites.

This bottle is from 2010 and pours a very hazy golden hue with a one finger head and lacing here and there,the smell is fresh green apples,vinegar,a touch of oak and white grapes,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and has tastes of green apples,acidic vinegar and finished with a white grape tartness and overall it's nicely paired with my fish and chips but not one for the first timers cheers.
