3.46/5 rDev -21.2%
Pours a not particularly appealing looking hazy amber.
Aroma: Mild funkiness for style. Less off-putting than some others.
Flavor: Fruity and complex taste starts sweet and sour but turns tart and bitter by the finish. Quite tart mid-taste.

4.61/5 rDev +5%
Appearance: Pours a very hazy orange-tinged golden color capped by an inch of foam that fades quickly; plenty of dotty lace is left behind
Smell: Lemon, green apple, leather and barnyard
Taste: Lemon and green apple, up front, rather acetic at the outset; develops funk and softer slightly tropical fruit flavors, in the middle; the finish is dry and leathery; the aftertaste is like a really sour white grapefruit
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice pucker
Overall: What an excellent beer this is after aging it in my cellar for three years; hits on all the right notes

A- Golden bodied pour to a tulip with a small white head that falls fairly quickly. Fairly hazy appearance as the head dies to absolutely nothing. Lacing is not going to happen.
S- Reminds me of 3F and Cantillon Gueuze in a way. Funky and sour nose reminds me of the most authentic Gueuze. Dusty, sour, oak, lemons and barnyard.
T- Again, it brings back memories of the best Gueuzes I have had. The sours are high but not puckering like Cantillon or Hanssens can be. Lemon zest, barnyard funk, mineral water, stone fruit, oak, white grapes, pear/apple, slight tannins, some acetic and horsey funk. Cheesy cheddar.
MF- Dried out light end body as any Gueuze should have, the consistency is pretty much spot on. Carbonation is at a fairly high level and with each sip it foams up quite a bit. Finishes with tart acid lingering on the palate.
I have to remind myself to get a few bottles next time. I was somewhat strapped for cash when I got this bottle but this is at least on-par with the great Gueuze I have had. Tons of flavor and complexity with a great sourness.

A - Pours a clear light orange with a small cream-colored, active head that fades to the edges very slowly.
S - Ver tart and acidic, oaky with some pear.
T - Pear, almost honey-like sweetness, tart, acidic oak. Very good and unique.
D - Light body with decent carbonation.
O - Unique flavors, but very welcoming and nice.

not sure if this blend is technically a gueuze or not, but what does it matter? a genius blend of young and old blonde sour beers ages in oak, and the result could not be any more wonderful, not could this series of beers from allagash. murky but really pale blonde color, white hues to it, under a very white and light as a cloud inch of head. it smells incredible, that oaky sourness with a ton of lacto derived acidity that we usually associate with the sours of old world belgium. its that authentic, mix of farmy musty yeastiness and exuberant carbonation that tickles my nose. the flavor is everything you would expect from the style, but with a few special twists. the first is in the finish, which has an almost white grapey flavor to it that balances the acidity, that would otherwise be gargantuan. maybe more of a white cranberry, as it is still tart, but its not what i usually get in lambic types, yet is is extraordinary successful, where ever it comes from. the second little surprise here is the feel. its so well carbonated. sometimes the belgian examples come flat, but i love this level of effervescence in a lambic style, and both coolship series beers ive tried have had it so far. missing nothing, this blended sour is both elegant and extreme, and rivals beers like rueuze for the best made in its category in the united states. i cant remember better.
