On-tap at the Armsby Abbey, a leftover from the Zwanze Day event.

A: Pours a hazy gold, with a finger and a half of billowing white head.

S: Super tart, lactic, bright acidity. Slight wine-like character, tart apple and citrus. A small amount of brett funk and make a hint of tannin.

T: Puckeringly sour. Bright acidity, tart fruits and slightly vinuous. Mouth watering on the back palate. There are delicate layers of tartness and funk. Extremely tart, but not overwhelming. Dry, but refreshing.

M: Again, puckering. Nicely carbonated. Light and drinkable. A hint of sweetness up front, but mostly dry. Each sip makes you anticipate the next.

O: My first Loon was not a letdown. This is an excellent beer. Probably the best gueuze I've ever had. If only I could drink this one more often. Absolutely delicious.

375ml bottle, 2012 vintage, poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Mostly clear golden orange, with a finger of soapy white head that hangs around for a solid bit of time. No lacing.

Smell: Lactic sourness up front, followed by some pear skin and green apples. Some white wine must. A light amount of funk, but this fresh loon is more lactic on the nose than anything else.

Taste: Super lactic tartness up front, followed by some funk and hay. More pear skins, and a lemony bite. Layers are woven very well, and no particular part stands out other than the lactic sourness. Some wheaty sweetness. Finishes sour with pear skin.

Mouthfeel: Quite sour, and it lingers through the end of the palate. Not as dry as I was expecting, which is surprising, and for some reason I really enjoy it. Lightly juicy.

Overall: My first fresh loon and it shows. Funk is turned down, but the lactic sourness still shines. Great!

A – Super clear no haze what so ever. Light yellow in color. Carbonation was light and crisp. Very nice lacing in my snifter.

S – A lot more brett funk in this beer than the regular 2-year lambic.

T – Lots of wheat and lemon.

M – This was a strikingly dry beer, I thought it would be sweeter given that’s it’s blended. Carbonation was really nice. Had a really nice medium body to the beer not light and watery at all.

O – I really enjoyed this but I liked the unblended 2-year lambic much better.
