Pours an amber color, completely hazed, with a subtle white head, which dies down to a white lacing, coating the edges of the glass.

Smells of an unusual, well working funkiness, consisting of fermented grain bread, dried garden herbs and lots of cream cheese. Has a soothing rose hip and tangerine peel fruitiness, softened by straw and a lighter note of leather.

Has a light mouthfeel with a lower, yet refreshing carbonation, producing a soft, tartness accompanied finish.

Tastes of a heavier funkiness, with a good amount of blue cheese, ditectly among old herbs and moldy woodbark. This flavor composition, once established, gains more and more complexity to it, just by allowing all the flavors to carefully unfold onto the palate. This produces a peach presence, fish skin (in a good way, think bonito flakes) and a present herbal bitterness. Finishes surprisingly mellow, with less funk and more present fruits, estery yeast and a note of rubber, together with a subtle dryness from the hops.

A great interpretation of a Geuze, complex, funky, with a well integrated, hop supported fruitiness. This creates its own, strong headed house profile, which tastes very convincing.

Described on the bottle as 'gebraut im Stile der belgischen Lambiks wurde nach 18 monatige Reifezeit im Barrique zur Nachgärung...Die wilden Hefen stammen aus dem Kölner Grüngürtel und dem belgischen Pajottenland.' Roughly translated as brewed in the style of Lambics, with secondary fermentation for 18 months in wine barrels and wild yeast from Cologne and Pajottenland regions. I'm intrigued.

Pours a hazy, light golden-orange with a dense and fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, slightly mineral, faint musty/cheesy funk. Taste is basically the same though lacking in intensity; the sourness is there, but everything else seems a bit muted. Low carbonation. Overall, when approached as an AWA, it's a very nice beer.

Pours a cloudy pale amber/light orange coloration with a medium, fluffy head that quickly fades. Smell is a nice mix of fruits and funk, with notes of blue cheese, peach, tangerine and a certain herbal/floral note as well. Taste is a very nice balance of light, biscuity malt, strong hoppy fruit notes, some yeasty esters and medium funk and tartness. Peach, tangerine and moldy/blue cheese funk dominate, with a certain grassy, herbal note and light estery spice as well. Finishes with a medium tartness and some peachy funk lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

This is a very well-balanced Sour Ale that almost brings to mind a Belgian Geuze, but has stronger hoppy and also light malty notes, giving this a very unique, but also very well-rounded character.
