The beer comes in a hazy peachy golden orange.

The aroma offers lemon peel, white grape, some musty old attic, prickly pear.

The flavor offers lemon zest and juice up front. White wine and champange qualities. A touch of mustiness. The spice of candy ginger. A decent drying quality in the back.

Light on the funk, tart, and flavor complexities, but a great introduction to the style.

Tart, no sweetness, slight funk, direct, highly drinkable. One of my all time favorite sours. Sad it's not more widely available.

A: (3/3) Clear golden with medium carbonation -- thin head, almost sodalike
S: (9/12) Smells like sparkling cider with a touch of woody sourness
T: (16/20) Subtle flavor--very understated compared to stronger sours I’ve had
M: (5/5) Very bubbly and medium dryness on finish
O: (7/10) Was really expecting something stronger, like the Tilquin or some Lambics I’ve had
40/50

A - Orange, mostly translucent but not transparent, with white head that forms up moderately high, reduces quickly, but remains as a thin layer over the top, climbing up the edge and leaving some lacing.

S - When the bottle says spontaneous fermenting, this is the nose you'd expect. A strong sour spike, with floral and lemon notes, combining with horse blanket and a bit of blue cheese lactic elements.

T - Following the nose, with a lemon fruit line combining with the lactic hit. There is wood here, and more barnyard notes, all of which fall to a slow build of clean sourness that lingers.

M - This is a highly acidic brew, but not a gut bomb like some of the lambics I've tried. Mild pucker means it is best enjoyed with small swallows over large swallows.

O - The fruit here is bright citric, lemons and such. This is a rock solid example of the gueuze, a blended lambic that focuses on the funk and sour elements that sometimes are backgrounded in the more friendly standard lambics. An approachable, relatively balanced example.
