This pours a cloudy, golden amber color with a foamy head. The aroma is slightly sweet and yeasty. The taste is sweet with lots of sugar, slightly tart, and leaves a lingering bitter taste. This is very tasty and a decent lambic for the price. With a good full texture this a lambic that delivers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

(poured with casual attention by the bartender into a tulip - 2nd/final pour by yours truly)

A: clear, pale honey-amber in color with a surprisingly durable cap of dense, creamy-frothy white foam (first half of pour)... poured in the rest (having likely been stirred by initial pour) sans last 1/2" - noticeably opaque with crumbling foam structure

S: first, a hit of earthy, sort of wheat germ graininess at its core - the bright, vaguely floral, inner layer of citrus peel comes in a step or two behind, around the perimeters

T: shifting shades of blinding, tart, dry citrus from start to finish - smooth shock of bitterness... with sediment poured in, a nutty element emerges in the finish... quintessential, pinpoint gueuze elements throughout

M: bright, tart smack up front, followed by a brief fuzzy funk, finally popping off and softly scattering out quite dry... nothing residual except for a delicate bitter numbness

O: fantastic gueuze - just what I wanted - just what I dream of (for the most part)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a fizzy off-white head that eventually reduces, leaving just a bit floating on top

S- lemon juice mixes with dried hay and barnyard funk aromas, fruity notes of peach and pear, musty and earthy yeast

T- big shot of puckering sourness up front, eventually gives notes of lemon peel, pear and peach. Funky yeast adds a musty tone with notes of dried hay and woodsy flavors, fruity lingers

M- light body with moderate carbonation leads to a slick and foamy mouthfeel with a bone dry, picking finish

O- big puckering notes on the aroma and taste, very good overall
