Served on-tap at Hunger N Thirst.

A - Pours hazy copper orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving a thin sheet of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of woody oak, lemony lactic sourness, yogurt, some mild basement must, bit of barnyard funk and a good amount of bready pale malt.

T - Starts off with some mild tartness and a good bit of chewy pale malt quickly being joined by the basement must, brett barnyard funk, yogurt and some pithy lemon zest. Finish chewy and very dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Tart, chewy feel with a ton of dryness that clings to the palate. It really starts to wear on me over the course of the glass.

O - A nice treat to try, not every day you get to try a straight "lambic" on draft. I would prefer a bit more tartness and less woody dryness but all in all another solid offering from Bullfrog's sour program.

"Draft Oude Geuze Style. Pulled from a single puncheon (barrel). 100% draft Grrrz."

Ive heard lots of conflicting information about this offering. Some saying its a barrel that didnt make the cut to be put into bottles of le roar. Others saying its just a single barrel, unblended. I dont know, the quote above is directly from Bullfrogs description. It pours a hazy copper color with a white froth that maintains decent and displays patchy lace.

The aroma contains some herbal hops and some citrus aspects like zest and pith with lots of bretty funk and earth. The taste is tart with a huge leathery brett presence before some rindy bitterness and zest/pulp like grapefruit/orange aspects.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It has a really solid blend of sourness verse funk and earth. I was a little surprised by the bitter herbal notes but that aspect of it was very similar (in my opinion) to fresh Drie Fonteinen. I cant wait to get into the bottled version of this.

Sampled on tap at the brewery.

Golden with a hazy finish and a small white head. Aroma has a nice complexity of funk and fruits. Flavor follows with wonderful funk, a moderate tartness and fruit. So smooth and silky.

I seriously doubted the comparisons to Belgian Gueuze but I was wrong. This is one of my favorite American sours and gives me great hope for America's sour future!
