This is an amazing beer. Just moved to the top of my favorite list.

Fantastic sour, fruity, aged cheese, earthy, high carb (american "gueuze" style ale).

Move over Cantillon ;-)

But seriously, this beer was done right. Any sour, lambic, gueuze fan will be lucky enough to go to the brewery and try this one.

On tap @ Barrelworks

This beer had great appearance, nice crisp yellow with rich white foamy head. Strong sour notes on the nose. Nice tart and sour mouthfeel, great carbination as the beer sits you get more funk. Very drinkable sour from Firestone!!
