Bottle into a flute.
A: White, soda-pop head quickly dissipates into nothing. Fizzy body with a transparent, cider hue. Plenty of carbonation rising up through the glass.
S: Sour, sweet, and a bit musty. There might be a hint of metallic tang to the nose, too. Definite hints of not-unappealing plastic.
T: Quite tart in the beginning, a bit sweet in the middle, and with solid but not overpowering barnyard taste. Lactic and acetic acid; the funk definitely tastes like my gym bag smells, or maybe a used bandage--the sort of gross beauty of gueuze.
M: Very carbonated, thin, pop-like mouthfeel. It helps the acidity, for sure. Not much to chew on, though.
D: If you like gueuze, this is one of the best American versions, but it's not quite as well-honed as those from the stylistic homeland. A great R&D beer, and I hope they bring out similar things soon--a noble attempt like this will hopefully yield better results in the near future.

500 ml bottle served in a New Glarus flute. Bottled 8/6/10. Thanks to sweemzander for the share!
A: Pours a clear yellowish color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace.
S: Fruity and sweet with a slightly tart lemony note. Grassy, wet oak and a hint of lemon peel.
T: Lots going on in the taste. Tart apple, lemon spritz, musty basement and grass. Sweet vanilla with some pale malts and a little oak. Sour lemon notes as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation. Sour and sweet finish.
O: Really good. Definitely enjoyed this one. Easy drinking with a nice complex taste.
