A - Pours a hazy amber with a two finger white head. The head recedes quickly to a thin ring leaving some light spotty lacing.

S - Aroma is green apple, lemon peel, oak and lacto.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Green apple, lemon peel, apricots, oak and lacto.

M - Light body with medium/high carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - Solid readily available Gueuze. My only is complaint is the price tag.

Color of bright apricot, no head.

Tart lemon and olive brine on the nose.

This puppy is really a acetic, super sour tour de force, with concentrated green apple, lemon and lime in near-vinegar form.

For the truly obsessed sour lover.

A very well done sour blonde, but nothing crazy. Intense lacto sourness, little funk, clear and pretty yellow, but hard to swallow the pricetag. Cheers!

Bright golden color with a wispy white head that left quickly. Smells were understated, with funk, barnyard, oak, vanilla, orange, and apricot. Huge tastes of lemon, apricot, and cherry. Definite funk and floral esters were woven in, and finally there was a nice oaky presence. Dry and clean finish.
