March 2012 Bottle

Pours a dark golden clear color. Active head coming out of the bottle and into the glass that disappears almost as it formed. Very active carbonation in the glass.

Smells of lemon, funk, very dry, faint oak.

Taste is acidic, tart, sour apples, but not overwhelming. Very balanced with some sweetness.

Mouthfeel is crisp, refreshing, not too intense of a sour.

Overall, a very enjoyable sour.

375ml bottle dated February 2012
Appearance is hazy golden orange with bright white foam that dissipates rapidly. Smell is of lemon and funk. Diaper funk. A touch metallic. Not overpowering in the aroma department. Flavor is delicious funk, a little bit of sweetness, and moderate acidity. Some lemon rind and nectarine. The sour lingers more than the Tilquin that im drinking side by side. Would like some more bubbles but the lower level of carb is probably true to style. A delicious gueuze.
