3.91/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours golden amber with a large white head that thins out fairly quickly. No lacing.

Very nice grassy aroma. Musty basement, citrus, wet hay, woody, and typical farmy aroma but not so aggressive. Tart with a subtle sweetness in the background

Sour upfront finishing with funk and some sweetness. The sourness is a bit one-dimensional and not quite as dry as I'd like. Still refreshing. The beer might be a bit too young.

Biting but not too highly carbonated. Some bitterness and sweetness sticks around in the finish.

A nice gueuze, but a bit one dimensional and not quite dry and carbonated enough.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a golden amber hue with a creamy ever present two finger head and lacing here and there, the smell is horse blanket, granny smith apples, a touch of vinegar and Brett, the feel is creamy, moderately carbonated and smooth with sour tastes of apples, grapes, musty funk and finished with a Brett funkiness and overall a great interpretation of the style that id buy again in a heartbeat.

4.11/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12.7 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a dense gold with a one-inch eggshell head that sticks around for a few minutes. Lacing minimal. Heavy carbonation.

Aroma: Now this is funky. The beer has a powerful aroma of lemons and funk. You can definitely understand why people say this style has a "barnyard" smell.

Taste: How much tart can you take? This is a sour beer for people who love sour beers. It tastes like lemons, citrus and overpowering sourness. It's a sipper for me - one to savor and enjoy. It also has some nice vinous quality to it.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a nice, light body. Almost summery in depth.

Overall: Someone unfamiliar with lambics will find this too abrasive - like if someone poured paint thinner into a very tart shandy. But lambic fans will love it - it hits all the notes, brings a bomb of sour flavor, and comes in that cool bottle.
