Rusty brown with a slight haze and a thin white head. Tart citrus and lemon aroma along with hay and barnyard funk. Very sour on the palate which highlighted the fruity notes, but the funk and leather were there as well. Complex and enjoyable.

Pours a rich copper gold, lacy head & mild carbonation. Aroma has bright lactic notes - sour lemon, overripe apple, cider vinegar, champagne yeast. Taste begins with tart citrus, oak tanin, sandalwood, dry Belgian yeast - it is a little earthier than some gueuzes, it has lots of root tones on the backend and finishes with a sour cork note. Starts out well but just a tad too rustic for me overall.

It pours hazy deep golden color with huge off-white head. Foam persistence is great. Low lacing. It smells moderately sour funky, horse blanket, light fruits and slightly burnt wood. Taste is strongly sour and highly acidic. It's beautiful combination of sour grape-like tartness and intense woodiness. Slightly puckering, sour and very dry finish is incredible. Funkiness still continues in aftertaste. Very high, acidic carbonation with low-medium body. One of the most amazings beers, A masterpiece!

Bottle from last night’s share. Pours out a hazy orange tone with a small soapy head. Sourness leads the aroma, dry woody elements, and some apple. Taste brings in more sourness, light and fizzy feel, as is right for the style. Finishes with a pucker.

It pours dark amber with a two finger head that lasts all but a few seconds. The aroma is very citrusy, nutty and with a very light funk. The taste is insanely complex. Lemon, unripe apples, pears, sunflower seeds, flowers, and it finishes very bitter. No residual sweetness at all. This is a very dry and awesomely aromatic gueuze.
