4.01/5  rDev +2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Different beer than I normally drink but it was worth the try. I expected it to be more sour but it wasn’t that bad.
