05 vintage.
Pours a nice fizzy head, hazy apricot colored.

Nose nice blended sour juice, light funk aged tart fruit like, little grassy light lemony tartness, nice funk and just a touch of oak.

Taste same, tart fruit funk, dry bready malt, little cork, great balance of sour fruit, with a bit of a sharp acidity and some lemony tartness, light wet hey and a grassy funk, very light vinous quality and a good juicy sourness with faint oak. Finish is semi flemmy and acidic, nice lingering sour fruit and light lemony flavor.

Mouth is med to light bodied, decent carb for how old it is.

Overall fantastic beer, on par with or maybe even setting the standard for an oude gueuze. Great structure, acid levels, sour flavors, long finish, just tasty.

Lovely Cali afternoon, 90 and breezy. Needed a beer for the occasion. thinking this one may just fit the bill...

Pours a picture perfect deep gold. swirling it around with nice lacing and carbonation. i can smell it instantly. Imagining my backyard is fill with lemon zest fields and straw haystacks.

Taste is nicely acidic. mellow and understated. peppery and slight spice. nice orange(y) flavor going on. so well balanced. The 'drinkabilty' factor is HIGH on this brew. i could have a few of these and not have the life sucked out of my mouth like those delicious RR sours.

Im diggin it. if im being picky, id love this brew to throw a 'juicy' bag around its neck, and take strut around if you know whata mean

375mL (bottled 11/18/2010) into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy golden color w/ a 1-finger white head, vigorous carbonation.

Aroma is tart, very dry and oaky, funky, a little vinous.

Taste is lemony, grassy, sour, oaky, mildly acidic.

Mouthfeel is clean, refreshing, w/ a crisp dry finish. Carbonation tickles the palate.

Overall a solid, straightforward rendition of the style.

2012 bottle

Appearance- Golden orange, pretty clear with a thin cap of white head

Smell- Lots of funk, lemony acidity is there, along with an earthiness. Definitely dominated by the funk

Taste- Lemon and green apple skin sourness, a bit of a grassy herbalness, which develops into a musty, dry funk. Aftertaste brings more of the green apple flavors

Mouthfeel- Light mouthfeel with lots of prickly carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp, very nice

Overall- Top notch stuff, nothing really else to say. Consistently good and easy enough to get a hold of, I always keep a few bottles around!
