Golden color with light haze, a bit of white foam. Aroma has yeast funk, damp cellar notes and old wood. Taste follows with bitter wood notes, almonds, walnut skin and dry, astringent finish. Light body, medium minus carbonation. Quite unbalanced, woody and funky.

750ml corked/caged bottle served in a tulip. Hand-written date of 3-29-16 on the bottle. I think this was a gift from @mr-jj.

Pours clear pale yellow with a smallish head and lots of very fine, fast carbonation. Smell is powerful, inescapable while pouring. Tart, oaky, gueuzey.

Taste is tart -- apricot and lemon, I think. Oak is there but not so strong, and a bitterness I can't quite pin down, but makes me think of fruit skins.

Mouthfeel is dry, light, surprisingly effervescent. Overall, this is an excellent beer.

Like the fruited versions, this also has a solvent/rubber-like character to it. It's not nearly as sour as expected though.

Oddly, as this warmed up, the rubber notes diminished.

I was excited to see that this Guezue from Bullfrog. It has an artistic label on the beer.
A hard pour produced dismal results. No head developed, but a thin white ring circles the beer. The beer is a pale yellow with golden hues. The clarity of the beer is clear with visible carbonation bubbles. The appearance of the beer is just abysmal. It leaves too much to the imagination.
Citrus and funky barnyard notes are the initial aromas. Additional aromas are honey, grass, oak, earthy, crackers, and apples.
The flavors in the beer are citrus, honey, wheat, hay, barnyard, apples, crackers, oak, grass, and grainy.
The mouthfeel of the beer is acidic, tart, and dry. The body of the beer is light, light effervescence, and a medium finish.
This beer failed a Gueuze. The head was non-existent. The had a minimal amount of effervescence. The flavors of the beer were there but lack the harmony one would taste in a Gueuze. I was wanted to love this beer, but I do not.

Bottled 3/30/2015. Pours a hazy orange with no head; just a tight band around the edges. Nose expresses citrus, funk and cork. Taste follows nose; however, the citrus quality is a bit brighter. Body is light-medium with an assertive, lively carbonation. All and all an excellent American Gueuze.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Bullfrog Le Roar Grrrz glass. Acquired in a trade with Brian. Thanks man!

Pours a hazy amber body with a two finger white head that reduces to leave a ring of foam and spotty lacing.

Aromas are thick and inviting, there's a lot going on here. Predominately citrusy-funk, giving way to a mustyness, white grapes, oak, pepper, fruit skins.

On the tongue is a lightly tart citrus funk, musty basement, lots and lots of oak, champagne, white wine, bright fruits, finishes with a crisp, dry wine/champagne like astringency. Medium-light body, not very carbonated at all. Would have preferred a little more carbonation.

Overall a very, very solid Wild. This would definitely hold it's own against some Belgian gueuzes. Complex, balanced.
