Slightly hazy golden color with white, foamy head. Aroma is intense and fresh. Farmhouse funk, hay and lemons. Taste starts sour up-front. Piercing lemon, grass, floral notes, not really funky on the taste. Also no bitterness. Body is medium bodied and highly effervescent. Very clean and fresh but lacks some complexity.

2/2014 bottling. Super pale pilsner malt based body, thin head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is smooth and crisp, straight forward but enjoyable. Some hay, some wood sap. Flavor has a hint of vinegar acidity (acetic acid), then lot of lemon. Not much funk, and not much complexity. A mediocre Oude Gueuze.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled the 26th of February, 2014; drank the 16th of December, 2015. Pours a nice straw-to-orange color. Smell is of brett funk (barnyard hay), some peach/apricot pit, and lemony citrus. Taste is quite tart, almost lemon juice-like acidity w/ light, barely perceptible vinegar notes. Finishes sweetly, but not cloying with traces of acid lingering. Overall, this beer definitely quenches the sour-beer-lovers' thirst, though it does lack some of the subtle complexities of other sours I've had. 7.7/10

From 750 mL corked bottle to Lost Abbey teku glass. 2012 bottle

A: Orange-tan appearahcne, cloudy. Looks like an orangesicle with the creamy head.

S: Tart and citrusy nose, a little sweet. Suggestions of lemon zest and dried grass edge the bouquet.

T/M: Light and refreshing on the palate. Tart, but cellaring has bent the flavor profile toward sweeter aspects (I've had this fresh and it's much more tart). Earthy mid-sip with floral tones. Finishes quickly without much lingering between sips.

Refreshing and easy to drink...has held up well given the ABV.

This one was bottled 2/26/2012.

Appearance is deep, hazy gold with lots of carbonation, but no head. Smells vibrant, lemony, stone fruit, and a hint of barnyard. Tastes almost identical to how it smells, very pleasant, light funk and oak in the aftertaste. Highly effervescent.

Ultimately, this is a beautiful beer.
