hazy, cloudy golden color with white fluffy head dissipating to a ring. Aroma of lemon zest and funk. Highly effervescent carb, lightly drying, and a mildly bitter finish. Really nice for its price if you like high carbonation on a gueuze.

Appearance: pours with a finger and a half of crisp white head which settled in but was still very present while drinking. The color is a murky golden yellow color. Active carbonation is bright, about right for the style.

Smell: Butter and sprite fruity yeast lead the way. Those aromas lead to a darker oak backbone which has some deep woody complexity. White pepper and exotic spices dance on the aroma underneath the wood and yeast notes. Bright tropical fruits dance on the back end.

Taste: Sprite tropical fruits quickly lead the way with some brighter woody notes. But mid-palate, the oak thats a slightly, non-favorable, funky turn which delivers some flat uninspired oak flavors. Herbal hops pick up that flat oak and a touch of tartness pick up the back end and save this beer.

Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation is felt and I think plays a role in that odd sour turn of the oak flavors.

Overall: A solid affordable gueuze but not one I would routinely go to to get a fix. The mid body turn of the oak is really a disappointment. Overall though worth a shot.

Look: Pale Shade of cloudy Yellow with a big white head, carbonation is running wild. Smell: Tart Fruitness, Mild Skunk, Funk, Spice, Dead Leaves. Taste: Sour Lemon Pepper, Sweet and Tart, Spicy, Super Dry, Heavy Metalic. Feel: Light Body, Heavy Carbonation.

Overall: This is my Introduction to the Geuze style. I am Surprised, this was one funky brew. Pretty complex, yet this is my first step to the style. This brew is worthy.

Poured into a teku from a 375 mL bottle.

It's got a hazy orange/copper aroma with a few visible carbonation bubbles making their way north. The head is light, airy and foamy with a pale white color. 4.25

A fruity aroma like cherries is prominent, but this has that earthy funk and some acidity to it. Very sour on the nose and there's even something that suggests salt. 4

Peach, cherry and other orchard fruit combine with the earthy funk and horse blanket taste. There's a bit of graininess, grapefruit and citrusy aftertaste and a peppery saison-like feel. 4.25

It's funky, yeasty, highly carbonated brew with a heavy does of sourness. There are moments of acidity but nothing overbearing. It's light bodied and feels very lively on the tongue like champagne. 4

It's a good beer. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I think this hangs with many of the marquee beers out. 4.12
