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

Hazy golden blonde colour, ring of white head, some lace as well. Smell is funky, a bit lactic, fruity with notes of green apple, acidic notes similar to fresh lemon juice, a bit of barnyard, smells like it is going to be quite sour. Taste is a mix of funky and fruity, musty basement, lemony citric acid flavours, tart towards the finish, mildly sour in comparison to what the nose sugested, dry throughout and into the finish. Medium dry carbonation, medium bodied. Probably one of the easier drinking geuze I have had perhaps owing largely to the freshness of the bottle, I'm sure with time this will become funkier but it is quite nice so young already.

a tasty gueuze here, not super common in the states, at least in my experience, so thanks to claystation for getting it here live. a hazy blonde beer that has some very evident acidity. a short white head but some pretty good lace one it, and a lot of fizz here. a whiff of green bottle staleness to this, but it seems somehow pleasant with light lemony and lactic acidity. tons of oak to the taste, lighter body than other gueuze, and a very light lemon character that makes this distinct to me. acidity is less than it smells like it might be, but right about medium in comparison to the field. wheat malt base has a soft texture, and the big bubbles make it feel great on the palate, refreshing and clean. this tastes authentic to me, it reeks of open fermentation in oak vessels, and while it lacks the true layered beauty of say a cantillon, it seems to me to be done in a very traditional way and with great success. others have liked this less, but i find it one of the more drinkable examples of the style. id like to see it more available.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle 2007 vintage (7 years old). Pours a clear gold with thick white foam. Aroma is intensely cheesy with some barnyard and wood. Taste has a nice sourness, it is also quite sweet and the wheat is very present. This one is miles ahead from the unrefined fresh version. The nose is stellar but the taste could be more refined although this lambic drinks easily. Close to the best examples of this style. 3.8
