Now this was a treat. I continually wanted to compare it to a Cantillion Guezue, but this is not blended.

A. Light straw color with shades of bright copper, great clarity, fine bubble egg shell head. High carbonation. Prolific effervescence.

S. Big tart nose, with notes of apple cider vinegar, granny smith apples, sour yeast, sour bacteria, and neutral oak.

T. Follows the nose to the tee. Big funk presence and the oak is very well balanced with the sour yeast. I would say this is very sour.

M. Very smooth, high carbonation, light body.

O. I could drink this all day long. It made me a little burpy but that goes with the territory. I'm a huge fan. This is very well balanced and benefits from a little age.
