look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A: hazy yellow, with high initial carbonation yielding a large amount of head in the initial pour. Medium bubbles stay atop the beer for most of the drink.

S: I know it's rarely helpful, but it's typical gueuze, tart and a slight but funky. In the tart I get some lime and crab apple. The funky is a little moldy or musty, like the smell of an old (well kept) wooden attic.

T/M: taste to me is more sour apple-Granny Smith than anything. The carbonation adds texture, akin to spiciness which makes me think of ginger. The taste doesn't quite pucker but balances against an indistinguishable light sweetness (apple juice, maybe) to produce a nice easy finish to the taste.

O: other than maybe a little more sour bite, or a twist in the end taste, I feel this beer probably can't do much better to increase my enjoyment.
