4.13/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Not much of a sour guy, but I'm trying to get into them. This came highly recommended by one of my sour loving friends.

A: Golden yellow, light carbonation. Minimal head. This is my first gueuze but from what I read, this is what they should look like. Crystal clear.

S: Sour, grape-like aroma. At first it smells a bit like vinegar, but then it dies down a bit. Hints of cork. Reminds me of a white wine, but with some graininess in the aroma. Not a ton of aroma overall.

T: As one would expect, this baby is sour!. Lots of tart, acidic flavor. Not too overpowering for a sour-novice like me, but definitely on the more sour end of the spectrum. I get lots of green grape flavor with some lemon drop sourness in the end. Some graininess, but not a ton. Ends with a light grassy touch. Reminds me a lot of a white wine, but more depth and flavor, and not sweet at all.

M: Bone dry. Slightly astringent. Finishes with a twang in the back of the throat. Light to no carbonation.

D: I will have to say I enjoyed this overall. You have to be in the mood for this type of beer to truly enjoy it. I probably didn't pick up on all of the character of this beer as I'm a novice. The good thing is that I now want to try more beers like this. I'll pick this up again after I have a more experienced palate.

4.59/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375 ml Belgian flag bottle poured into Cantillon balloon glass. Pours hazy gold with a thin layer of white head that persists through out. The nose is loaded with character. Fresh cut grass and hay come first along with bright lemon zest that cuts through the funk. Speaking of funk, notes of earth and hay linger strongly through out with an obvious tangy ness present as well. Taste starts with huge wave of citric acid, lemon zest, and tartness. The tartness sets the table for the earthy funk. Notes of hay, oak, and cork come through towards the finish with some peppery spice notes. Super complex, different notes come to the front with each sip. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated with light body. Overall, a very enjoyable brew. Super funky with a nice dose of tartness as well.

T - Grapefruit rind and pith, oak, honey, bitter dandelion, lemon, lime zest. Soft and gently complex.

M - Smooth medium frame with a gentle creaminess, and a sessionablely sour finish.

O - Well balanced with a fantastic flavor profile. The quintessential archetype example of the style.
