4.41/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
330 ml bottle purchased during my recent trip to Vegas. I poured this one into my beer goblet after warming for a few minutes from the fridge.
Appearance: A nice crystal clear golden straw with lots of effervescence. A short white head with loads of tiny bubbles.
Smell: Much bigger than the color suggests. Boozy, or at least aromas that are associated with boozy. Oak and light malts, no hops are noticeable.
Taste: A surprisingly dry tart taste. Lemony in it's puckering ability. A touch acidic, all the while being very smooth. Each sips begs you to drink the next sip. There is a cracker character to the malt component. The little hops are simply for very light bittering. The finish is pretty strong and lasts for a while.
Mouthfeel: The body is light but not watery. The intense flavors easily coat the palate. The carbonation is high and spritzy.
Overall: A curveball of a beer. Very interesting and unexpected, I will be on the lookout for this one again.

4.21/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: 4.5 Crystal clear, pale gold. One-inch off-white head that lasts about a minute.
S: 4 Pretty mild. There’s a good amount of funk at first with some pepper, bread, lemon, and oak.
T: 4.25 Quite tart at first with slightly sweet bready malt closely behind. Lots of white pepper and lemon that go very well with the tart/funk flavors. Very light bitterness on the aftertaste.
M: 4.25 Farily light but not too thin. There’s enough there that makes the beer feel substantial but also leaves you wanting more. The dry finish is very nice, but there could be a bit more carbonation.
O: 4.25 This beer is easy to get and very pleasing if you’re looking to satisfy a sour craving. There are a lot of really nice flavors and a good tartness level. Not quite up there with some of the popular gueuze offerings, but a solid alternative.
