The beer comes in a clear golden yellow with a small white head.

The aroma has huge white vinegar. With some warmth, you get a hint of sweetness and white grape. There's some funk, but it's actually quite close to a white wine.

The flavor hits you with berry, white grape, then rolls with tartness. There some sour apple. There's some vinegar in there and really close to white wine.

There is a beautiful longy tartness that is stiff and dry, but also gentle. It doesn't wreck the palate.

This is the second gueuze I've had next to Tilquin. While this is surely more complex and complete of a beer, I would still say Tilquin is extremely comparable. Therefore, I recommend that beer because this is hard to find.

The 375 ml was a perfect amount. I'm still slowly getting into this beer, but this really was a wonderful treat.

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.
