Meh, over priced gueuze that's nothing special for at least 5 years. Who has the time and money for that?

Big thanks to Frank, Kevin, and Jeremy for this tasting!

A-pours a tangerine orange color, somewhat hazy with a little thin white head on top.

S-lots of funk up front, earthy with plenty of mushrooms, a good bit of acidity and notes of sour lemon in the back.

T-lighter funk than the nose, earth and mushrooms, lots of lemon and citrus with a good balance of acidity and tartness in the back.

M-soft feel to it, light carbonation, a little thin in the back and a semi dry and very clean finish.

D-good balance of acidity, the funk is there but it fades a little in the taste, the citrus profile is nice and the tartness is moderate and enjoyable.

Vintage 2000

Pours to a hazy golden-orange color with a thick white head that diminishes to a ring. The aroma is musty and tart, with barnyard-like qualities. The flavor is tart and somewhat fruity with a musty flavor throughout. The finish is souring and tart. This is a tasty gueze, one of the better ones I have had.

I dared to be different tonight.

Poured into a beer chalice, a cloudy, straw coloured beer with a single finger of head.

I don't even have to stick my nose into the glass to realize that this is a sour beer. Sour peach, citrus, brett and a slight medicinal smell.

Wow, this is knock your socks off sour!!! The sourness of this beer fully encompasses the taste. The taste reminds me of a Jolly Rancher candy, the exact flavour is hard to pin down but I would have to say peach, lemon and maybe pineapple. There is a medicianl funk to the taste.

This beer to me has a thin mouthfeel.

Lambics are a very interesting style of beer. Not something I drink on a regular basis but something I enjoy when I want something radically different.
