Pours a hazy golden yellow with a bubbly two finger head. Quickly recedes to a one finger head and slowly bubbles away into a small ring.

On the nose is sour apple and funky yeast. A little bit of earthy notes.

Taste is sour, tart, and salty. Some fruits in the background. Very tart and salty. A hint of oak on the aftertaste. Clean finish.

Good carbonation. Light but creamy and smooth.

Good sour. Try it if you get a chance. Would drink again.

375 mL bottle poured into a tulip at Specialty Beer Cellar in Abacoa.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Pours with a decent white head, but doesn't last long. A few bits of foam persist on the surface.

Smell - Zesty lemon. Not too acidic, but it dominates the aroma. A little bit of feet. Grain and some pale malt. Not the funkiest, but I like it.

Taste - Lemon zest and hay flavors come out right up front. Then they drop off. It isn't all that sour. Grain gives way to a slight sweetness and a pale malt dullness that rounds it out.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is fine, but the sourness just drops off, almost like someone tried to make a gueuze with a sugar addition. Kills all remaining flavors.

Overall - Nothing offensive going on here. Just doesn't deliver for me. Drops off in the back with too much malt/

2007 Vintage...

I've been eyeing this beer on the shelf for quite some time and I noticed that the last time I was doing some shopping, there was a single bottle left... I grabbed it..

I'm not a gueuze expert but I've had some really good ones... Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, Girardin... this is a nice approachable gueuze compared to those...

Hints of tartness with an overwhelming funkiness on the nose...I was expecting some super funky flavors on this but it is rather subdued... now... its funky don't get me wrong but it ain't Girardin Black Label awesome... lots of old leatheriness to it but it isn't quite as sour as I was hoping... maybe I should have sat on it?

Good beer, not a world class one... but a good one...

A good beginner gueuze...
