A - Pale orange. Hazy. Little to no head.

S - Funk. Musk. Apple cider vinegar. Slight fruit. Grapes and lemons.

T - Apple cider vinegar. Wild funk. Sweet honey. Wet hay. Lettuce.

M - Bubbly. Tart. Sour. Dry. Acidic. Leaves mouth quickly sticks to tongue longer.

O - A great lambic. Funky and vinegary. Love its subtle grape tartness and honey sweet backbone. Will probably drink again.

Pours a golden orange color with a decent amount of off white head, nice lacing.

Smells of must, hay, sour apples, that funk from brett, oak, and slightly of grapes.

Taste begins with a burst of lemon and apples settling into a combination of funk and the citric and vinegar sourness. Finishes with a tart dryness with a good amount of oak to leave a beautiful lingering freshness. Not too acidic and not too funky.

Mouthfeel is a little thick, but spot on carbonation.

Overall, this is really impressive. The kriek on Firkin scared me away for a while, but this is a good gueuze!

750ml corked and caged, bought this somewhere I don't quite recall, prob. had it in the fridge for a year or so. Poured into Lost Abbey stemware.

A- Bright orange in the glass, nice clarity, and a big snowy head. Settles with some faint but attractive lacing after the initial pour.

S- Serious stank coming off this. Tart, unripe fruit, sour twang in the nostrils.

T- The unripe fruit comes back in the way of a granny smith apple. There's not as much funk as in the nose. There is some saltiness to it- some cheesy (hops?) flavors as well. Bold flavors that really come together well- this beer is a shot in the arm (or tongue).

M- A bit of a burn on this one. Sharp flavors. I like it, but it wears on ya a bit. Still very enjoyable.

O- Great stuff. 'Nuff said.
