look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a 375 ml bottle into a gueuze glass.

A-The beer is very light in color...straw with some dirt on it. There is some active carbonation visible through the murky liquid, but the head is short and retention is minimal. Foam is white and thin.

S-The aroma is quite funky with big doses of barnyard, curd, and an overall mustiness that reminds me of Belgian gueuze. There is a bit of lemon and apricot fruit here, as well as some moderately tart acid. Somewhat restrained, but interesting nonetheless.

T-The taste is also restrained with tart lemon, straw, orange, moderate barnyard funkiness, and a bit of acidity carrying the day. The beer is on the dry side for a sour of this style, but just slightly so. Funk is less intense on the palate than in the nose.

M-The feel is lighter than average with a moderate amount of carbonation that is fine on the palate.

O-I quite enjoyed this beer. Other TRVE beers have hit me over the head with acidity or flavor or whatever, but this one pulls it punches a bit and the result is a well-done, gueuze-like beer that is easy to drink, but still flavorful and interesting. This is a nice, approachable summer beer for sour lovers like me.
