Bottled 3 years ago, this gueuze pours a clear, amber first glass, and a murkier second. Carbonation is quite present, but head is zilch.

Nose has a slightly lactic quality to it, among the other funky brett odors. Strong lemon and light green apple quality comes through, as well a bit of walnut or hazelnut underneath.

Taste is super lemony, also a bit nutty. No oak or dryness is particularly present. Mouthfeel is well carbonated, but quite thick. The beer coats your teeth – practically dissolves the enamel – and thickens your saliva, as if you'd just drank overly tart lemonade.

Overall, it's a very good beer within the style, definitely a winner for sour fans, but not one for tossing back. Anything more than sipping will likely give you canker sores and heartburn.

Orange color, very cloudy. Foam slightly yellowish, quite high, medium blistering, completely unstable.
The aroma of fruit, apple, white grape, orange, lemon, extra silage, cabbage, cucumbers, smell is sour and dry.
The taste is amazing, the fruits are flower accents, is silage and the village. Apples, oranges, ripe lemons, grapes and unripe gooseberries, silage, sour, cucumber. At the finish Gueuze just like water from the pickled cucumbers. Saturation, high ideal.
Light, crisp and incredibly drinkable beer for the summer, hangover and all that you think of.

Dull copper to light brass in color with a hazy complexion. There's a fingernail of off white around the rim and covering the majority of the top. Aroma is of tart and acidic Belgian yeast often referred to as barnyard funk. There's some pineapple and pear notes mixed in. I taste notes of pineapple, pear, and lemon lime. There's a very acidic, dry, and highly carbonated mouthfeel.
