look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tasting glass.

A: Slighly hazy, medium golden color with no foam head. No lacing remains on the glass.

S: Bright lemon and musty funk are featured, with other qualities such as gruyere and green apples faint but detectable. Other fruit and spice are absent, preserving an authentic cleanliness.

T: Begins dry, with potent tartness, bright fermented grain, and sharp minerality. Yeast funk becomes pronounced into the middle, suggestive of digestive fluid when considered with the sourness. Flavors drop off abruptly into the finish, tasting stale and just a little sweaty.

M: Medium viscosity, syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This wild ale features some authentic lambic qualities, mostly centered around the smell. The flavor profile starts out in agreeable fashion, but flails ineffectively by the midpoint. It seems a little young, and time to condition fully may alleviate the textural issues.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

poured 750ml bottle into Teku. 2014 Vintage.

A - Darker shade of gold with a soft white 2 finger head. Fades into thin ring with minimal lacing. Looks enchanting.

S - Starts off with a tart and sour aroma. Fresh lemon juice, green plum, and sour grapes. Funk is light and there is a slight woody character.

T - Huge bright tartness that is bordering on sour. Lemons. green plum, and sour grapes. I detect faint funk and some wood, even a bit of vanilla.

M - Light crisp finish with mouth puckering sourness. Carbonation is perfect and the finish is slightly dry.

O - Pretty tasty Gueuze style that is readily available in many places that helps make the price easier to deal with.
