4.4/5 rDev -2%
A- Pours a hazy sunset color with a nice, thick pillowy head.
S- Sour, lemon, citrus, funk, orange.
T- Bready and it hits like a train with an intense sourness up front. Lemon and citrus play a big part.
M- Medium bodied with a good deal of carbonation.
D- One of the best sours i've had to date. A great beer that I wouldn't mind having again.

12.7oz bottle into Duvel tulip: from notes
A: Pours a lively 2in. head that is white. The body is a deep golden hue, with plenty of haze. The classic appearance with no lace.
S: A spicy and zesty aroma is present. With medium intensity, showing a great use of wild yeast. A very deep and bold aroma, that is classic for the style.
T/M: The front is a zesty hint off the nose and brings a tingling sensation from the body. The mouthfeel is zesty, spicy and sour, in a complex layering effect. The lingering taste holds a rich note of sourness. While there is a tartness that is constant throughout the whole experience. As the brew warms the flavors become more complex and linger for longer.
D: This is the benchmark Gueuze for me and one that all others are compared to. A brew that truly has refined the style. And it also drinks like water,.. mmm so refreshing.

Bottle date of 12-1-11.
A- Pours a very hazy golden-yellow to orange color. Small head, but very, very fizzy like champagne. Head is gone quickly with little lacing following.
S- Mild and buttery starts of the scent. Moves right along into prominent oak flavors and a fair amount of sourness. Acidity and mild fruit flavors are among the sour notes. Hints of spiciness are also present.
T- Complex, slightly sour, and somewhat buttery, just like the scent. Sour profile is the first flavor that comes through. Similar to the sour qualities of citrus, but not overwhelmingly sour like some geuzes are. Definite notes of barrel wood chime in after the initial sour pang. Transitions from sour and barrel flavor to a few more hints of fruit, right into a nice buttery/bready flavor. Hops clean up with a brief and mild bite right at the end.
M- Spritzy and light, just like a champagne. Sour level makes it a little harder to drink, but not nearly to the level of some others. Sour level is definitely tame compared to others of the style that I have had. This is a beer I could drink all the time if it was more readily available.
Overall, this is probably the best sour I have had to date. The only beer that is close would be Cantillon Iris, but that was aged a year or two more and on tap.

Some days you just wake up and be all like "I need a fucking gueuze!"
A- Pours a very pale orange with a short white head. Falls back to only some white wisps around the rims of the glass
S- Daaamn! Smells so sour! Some funk in there with touch of citris but the sourness rules all
T- Beautiful. Nice sourness without being too much. This truly is everything you can want in a sour
M- Nice and light. Couldnt imagine a heavy sour
O- This is the bar for a reason. Beautifully done and I'll be trying to get my hands on more of this in the future

Out of the classic green bottle at tha joint - The Playground, in Downtown Santa Ana, CA.
Like your mama after she puts on cocoa butter, this bad sucker was all kinds of sexi. No vinegar, no off-putting sour, no funky like your sister after the gym...
Raul likes it. Raul likes it well and good.
