Great sour. Love the lemony nose and puckering sour mouth feel. Get a hint of woodiness late in the flavour. PH is quite low, so definitely a sipping sour but very bright and lively.

Look: Transparent gold in color with a thin white head. Very active.

Smell: Bright and salty on the nose. Zippy lemon, green apple, bruised pear, white pepper, floral potpourri, sea salt, and champagne vinegar. There is a light oak note on the finish.

Taste: A burst of tart lemon and champagne vinegar on the attack. This slowly fades to reveal a body of Greek yogurt, sea salt, green hay, wet gravel, apple cider vinegar, chalky smarties, and funk. The finish is long a dry with more champagne vinegar and a light oak.

Feel: Puckering tartness. High acidity. No alcohol. Body is lightly quenching with a bone dry finish. Carbonation is light and natural.

Overall: Just way too acidic and tart. It’s an absolute wallop of lactic acid. So much do that it started to burn my throat a bit and it felt like the enamel on my teeth was getting peeled off. All the flavors beside the tartness are pleasant but they get washed away by lactic acid. If enjoyed gueuze as a style in the past but this one way a bit too much. Not a fan.

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.
