Looks good with a hazy golden straw/amber colored body, with very little head. The smell is fantastic, and from it I'm expecting a very well done beer. Lemon grass and funk mostly, with the perfect amount of belgian bready yeast and a sour finish.
This is a very good beer. The combination of sweetness and sourness all the way through is very well done, and is especially emphatic up front, with lemon rinds and a farmhouse character. Green grapes and a hint of cider in the middle. The alcohol is barely perceptible, and the belgian yeastiness is perfectly blended with the other flavors. A fairly straightforward gueze, but almost perfectly sour with some interesting subtleties.
The mouthfeel is good as well. A medium body, though it is certainly undercarbonated. The drinkability is great.
