look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

the pour is a hazy light orange color and has a thin white head. The nose offers lots of peach, a bit of acetic acid, sour and nutty. The taste is a bit fruitier, very sour, rather acetic with loads of peaches. The finish is very dry and a touch grainy.

Can't remember who brought this - Jason? Vintage 2010, served in a Bell's tulip.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to nothing. Hazy peach body.

S - Vinegar, oak, stone fruits, lemon, green apple, and a touch of sulfur.

T - The taste has a bit more stone fruit sweetness and tones down some of the vinegar. Not as much oak here either. This is still pretty sour and acidic.

M - Medium-low carbonation, medium-light body, super dry, with negligible alcohol presence. Moderate acidity.

D - A bit too heavy on the acetobacter for a 'gueuze' - as John Laffler said "I've made this vinegar before!". Beyond that it was fairly enjoyable and I'd certainly consider trying other offerings from this brewery.

Big ass bottle from Simon's shop in Paris that my awesome girlfriend lugged home.
2008 vintage. 1.5 liter bottle.
Pours a nice copper color with about a finger of the slightest pink head.
Smells wonderful... very tart with a lot of cherry to fill out the nose, with a hint of oak... One of the nicest I have smelled.
Taste has a lot of cherry tartness as well.... smoothed out with a bit of oakiness. Nice carbonation that creates some nice lacing around the sides. This is really nice. Not overly tart, but tart enough. I like the sour the better generally, but this seems just right. This goes down very easy... which is good considering the size. Looking at the style, I would not call this a gueuze... this is much more like a lambic or kriek... but the brewery lists it as a French gueuze. This is so easy to drink my girlfriend and I easily put one away, and don't feel like we were trying.

Reviewed @ tasting 11/5.

Med full body, crisp and slightly syrupy, spritzy carbonation.
Great notes of fruit upfront; apples, lemon, and a solid grapefruit note, with a lingering floral hop note.
Finishes with a strong sour taste a hint of alcohol and a strong earthy note.
Overall; a highly drinkable, great tasting "sour".
