2014 vintage.

Beautiful bright golden color with nearly zero carbonation. Just a tho white ring of small bubbles.

Nose is bright green grass with stale clay earth. Funky wet straw that sprouted mushrooms.

Sharp tart acidity hits immediately. It is shocking at first. Green apple and unripe green pear at first with more bright green chlorophyll. Flavor fades to a long lemon acid finish. Behind all the tart notes are hard to find dry earth tones of terra cotta, clay and salty salty beach sand.

So salty. So tart. But oddly refreshing and somehow soothing.

Hazy lemon straw color with head that quickly settles. Fairly neutral smell. Taste is lemony with a trace of white pepper. Feel is good, some carbonation, refreshing. Overall, this is pretty good but maybe not worth its cost as a regular choice.

2014 vintage. Been sitting on this for a while waiting to crack it.

Pours a light fizzy head that disappears almost instantly, a bit of lacing and legs, very clear honey color

Nose brings loads of acidity, funky bacteria, pedio funk, Brett lambic, a little barnyard funk, mild vinous white wine, fruity but not anything specific, maybe lemon and apple but barely, a high level of funk for gueuze almost Fantome like

Taste also brings loads of acidity and funk, again big bacteria souring funk, pedio, lots of Brett lambicus, maybe some B as well with that barnyard funk, again more barnyard funk than usual, more mild fruit, white wine, apple, lemon notes, vinous, with white wine vinegar right up front, and bright acidity, finishing fairly flemmy, tart, big lemon on the finish, and white wine vinegar.

Mouth is lighter bod, loads of acidity, flemmy finish, bright carbonation too

Overall a nice gueuze, fairly well blended, lots of funk and acidity, nice fruit characters, enjoyable for one that is readily available on the shelves.

Pours into a plain glass, a very pale and hazy yellow with a tremendous effervescence and a large, fluffy white head.

Smells pleasantly musty, with nodes of pepper and bright lemon, with some bready yeast becoming a bit more pronounced as the beer warms.

Tastes great: lively and complex. Tart yeast up front with lemon and cherries, a breadier and spicier middle, ending with black pepper and lingering lemon. Quite tart, even for the style, but never hard to drink. Also a very full flavor even while it's so drinkable. A wonderfully brewed beer.

375ml bottle of the 2014 vintage. Looks like I am in the minority as I just wasn;t impressed by this. Light yellow, clear. Aroma is tart and funky. Flavor is sour and one dimensional.I guess I am just not getting this one, especially in comparison to stuff like Girardin and 3F.

Great color and classic peppery sour aroma. Taste was fairly lemon tart and the finish lingered with a sour fruity malt taste.

I love sours, and I liked this beer but I don't think it's a great sour, and while not as expensive as many sours, it was $9 for 375 ml, so it's hard for me to give it a higher rating.
