On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a bright slightly hazy straw yellow, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like lemon, lime, some tart funk, and grassiness.

This is unsurprisingly very good. It's beautifully puckering, bitter, and earthy. There's lots of citrus here, sour and very tart orange, lemon, and line, with some earthy almost minty flavors, and some herbal grassiness. There's a lot of delicious stuff going on here.

This is medium bodied, crisp and tart and biting, with a higher level of carbonation.

A big winner here, super drinkable and as tasty as it gets, really.

12 oz pour on tap at Monk's Cafe!

Look: Very light yellow with about a finger of head that dissipated very quickly.

Smell: Very brett-y smelling. Picking up a very light lime escence and light citrus.

Taste: This beer tastes incredible, a bit of funk, lime, and citrus with a very dry finish. Not quite as sour as I would have expected.

Feel: It's thin, as would be expected. Very dry finishing and super refreshing!

Overall: This beer is incredible! I really would like to explore more of this style!

Had at Moeder Lambic in Brussels - fantastic spot! A little lighter and more sessionable than its bottled brother, but expect the same tart, dryness with greater drinkability.

Had last night at Cask Republic on tap served in the glass seen in the picture. Nice cloudy and bright gold color, small head that sticks around. Sour and funky aroma, a bit on the lighter side, though. Nice strong flavor but nothing like the bottled stuff. Starts a hint sweet but is blown away by tartness. Barrel flavors in the middle remind me of peat. Hints of funk at the end. Very light and very drinkable.

Such a lovely gueuze, to be sure. Had it on tap at the Bier Station in Kansas City, MO (one of the best beer bars around). Dry yet tart and deeply refreshing. Could drink liters of this beer and not get sick of it. Great spring/summer/early fall beer. Complex yet accessible. Good gueuze to try if you have not had many.
