Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Cantillon tasting tulip.

Pours a flat, slightly hazy amber-blond body with zero head. Looks like apple juice.

Aroma is pungent and forward, tons of lactic, sharp citrus, some funk, white wine, balsamic vinegar.

Taste is quite different than the aroma in that it isn't nearly as funky/sour as it smells.. tart white wine, barnyard, spices on the finish. A little fruity on the finish, citrus and tart apple.

As far as mouthfeel, well, I'm not sure I like the flatness of this unblended lambic. A little carbonation is always good in beer.

Overall a good experience, I definitely know now what a gueuze tastes like before it is blended. Worth a try.
