Pours a glowing orange-amber color, with a fizzy, small head.

Very sour, fruity aromas with tart notes among subtle hints of white wine and vinegar.

Begins slightly sour with a notable fruitiness of lemon rind and unripe peach, also musty yeast which helps to keeo the beer in balance. Then sour, dry acidity becomes more and more detectable. It hits the palate in an intense, but refreshing way. The sourness in this Gueuze goes through different stages on the palate. At first, defined by a subtle fruitiness, then with slick yeast and soft yogurt notes, to finish with a dry, tart aftertaste.

I enjoyed this bottle at Cafe Brugges in Carlisle -served chilled from the bottle in a pilsner type glass.

The color is tarnished golden with light hazed and white snowy head that rises and falls with very fine bead. The smell is moderately sour -lemon zest and slight woody aroma with nice wild yeast in the aroma. The feel is moderately sour with medium high carbonation with subtle woody element in the feel and relatively low sweetness with a smooth sour finish.

The taste is great -lots of wild yeast flavor with a somewhat lemony taste with slight hint of wood in the back-end which brings a subtle tannic or spice to the flavor with mild malt which seems dry on the palate with herbal element and sour flavor the most dominant into the smooth relatively dry finish. Overall I really enjoyed this both on draft at Moeder and this bottle which had 2012/2013 on the neck label -very vibrant and a joy to drink!
