Thanks to UWBadgerFan4Life for this beer! Thanks alot chad! This beer has been a long time want!

375ml C&C bottle; bottled on 4/12/2013.

moderately loud pop as cork was removed from the bottle; poured into a Cantillion Wine stem.

Appearance: glowing and moderately hazy golden yellow bodied beer. Thin cap of white head that drops to a ring around the glass.

Smell: This is such a giant funky bomb. Dusty, musty, dirty, wet basement that is a moderate to heavy funkiness.

Taste: Wow. This is a serious funk bomb! Yeast and minerally flavors. Funk is huge. It tastes like wet moldy basement meets dirty sweaty gym socks. Lots of brett notes that are earthy and fairly fruity. Mild tartness finally kicks in at the end of the beer in the form of acetic notes, oak barrel/general woodiness. granny smith green apples and lemons.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Soft, supple, and creamy mouthfeel. Semidry finish. Really drinkable. A quick flash of carbonation that eppervesces as it rolls onto the tongue.

Overall: This beer is soooo seriously funky that I think this maybe the funkiest beer that I have drank yet to date. It reminds me alot of Cantillion Classic Gueuze. It might even be significantly funkier than the Cantillion Classic Gueuze. Phenominal mouthfeel on this gueuze! It seems that Allgash has some serious finesse with thier coolship! Gotta be a funk lover to appreciate this brew! I am a huge fan of the gueuze. This was no exception.

Thin head (1 ½ fingers), quickly dissipating to a thin bubbly line (appropriate for the style). Beer is a saison-like golden straw or lemon color, extremely cloudy, and just barely translucent at all. Very, very bubbly.

Sharp Brett, lemon, and wheat through the nose. Nice barnyard funk, very rustic.

Extremely sharp flavor, although not overly tart, that envelopes a slightly cheesier funkiness on all sides. Some lemony tartness, wheat, and more Brett. Super, super tasty.

Extremely crisp mouthfeel: very, very lively. Tastes like a lighter beer, but really is a pretty hefty feel, about medium-full. Thick and cloying. Great balance.

This is a fantastic beer. It has just enough tartness to come across as a Gueze, although it could easily pass for a Brett Saison. I don’t know quite what to say; it’s a fantastic beer, and makes an easy intro to the world of Lambics, Guezes, sours, or wild ales. Extremely drinkable, especially for the style.

Thanks to my friend Sean for the gift of this brewery-only release!

A-Pours a hazy, yet bright yellow color. Head is a wisp of fizzy white matter that pops away away to a cordless ring of remaining foam.

S-Tart and alive. Lemony tartness with some hay and cheese rind. Oaky notes too;wet oaky notes. Very aromatic.

T-Big of the sour lemon tartness. Lemon meringue, lemon flesh and some lime. Wet oakiness. Barny flavors too. Really authentic Gueuze. Very tasty, really rich in taste.

M-While rich in flavor, the body remains light, crisp, dry and bubbly. Higher ABV for the style but it's comparable to any other Gueuze I have had.

O/D-A delectable treat. Holds up to most any Gueuze I have had from its birthplace. Lucky to have tried a rather elusive brew.
