Pours a golden straw color with an inch or so of foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Visible lacing lightly represented around the glass. Smells of Brett, barnyard, dry grass, hay. A slight detection of fruit is present as well. Tastes very tart, sour, slightly bitter on the finish. Although it's bitter on the finish it is a pleasant bitterness that compliments the tartness. Pretty awesome tasting gueuze, drinkable at 6%, and readily available. Makes this a home run!

Shining gold color with a loose collection of large bubbles for a head that fizzles away quickly. Aroma opens with a funky acidity and musty wood, leading to some apple and earthiness. Wet hay, organics, cherry, barnyard. Flavor brings a bracing sourness, acetic wood, lemon acidity, apples, and dust. Medium bodied, acidic, and puckering. Great lingering gum-sucking sourness. Tasty!

4.22/5  rDev -0.7%

Pours a light yellow golden, hazy with a decent amount of fluffy head that fades to irretrievable with time. The smell is lemon and spoiled milk, but with a grassy note behind the tartness.

The taste follows the nose quite well. Lemon/lime pretty flat tartness, quite acetic overall. Provides a puckering effect, for sure, but a subdued one. The sides of the mouth draw in a bit, but the tongue can handle it, lending towards a smoother feel than otherwise expected. There is also a somewhat wheat-like taste in the end, perhaps mellowing out the bite (I could easily be imaging the exact flavor, but something balances the original tartness).

A decent, straightforward sour, tending just to the "tart" side of "sour" (per my own scale). The beer doesn't have too much depth, but that's not necessarily the point of a sour, in my mind. Given that it's an import and a sour, I'd have to consider cost, but this is a definite once-in-a-while beer.

Outstanding gueuze with a delicate, oily body; light but fluffy head that lingers for a bit before dissipating; and a zesty flavor profile of savory and slightly sweet, lemon-like flavors.
