Before I get into this I'm just gonna say it: This is one of the biggest disappointments I've ever experienced in my beering life.

A: Pours with a lovely orange hue, with a creamy one finger head. Looks great.
S: Pineapple, light touches of vinegar, slight undercurrents of pepper, apricot, orange and general citrus.
T: Very well balanced, slightly sweet, not overly sour. It's fine. Dankness from hop decay is here and funkiness is here, but not in spades. IT'S FINE. oh and sweet-tarts, yeah.
M: It's dry, what more do you want?
O: It's really good, but I like my Gueuze intense and this is not intense really, it's barely sour. So to me this is very underwhelming. Girardin is better, Hanssens is waaaay better, all Boon Gueuzes are better, tilquin is better, Lindemans cuvee renee might be as good. I don't look for balance in a lambic, that's not why I'm here. Try it if you can find it, don't turn it down if it is offered to you, but don't wait in line for it, don't sell your soul for it, and don't spend your time wishing you had tried it, IT'S FINE. THAT'S IT.

2016, pours a light golden straw yellow with notes of pink and orange. Translucent in appearance with a thin foam head that dissipates quickly. Nose is of light funk, lemon zest a musty oak. Taste of tart lemon and citrus peel that give way to a slight bit of funk, a bit of that burlap sack stored in a barn for 50 years funk if you know what I mean ;) Smooth oak rounds out this one perfectly. Tartness was definitely the star here but I wouldn’t say the beer was overly tart or sour. It had the perfect amount of balance. Medium to light on body with moderate carbonation. Very dry clean finish to it.

Bottle share.
Look: Light pink/amber. No head or lacing.
Smell: Farmhouse, light leather.
Taste: Nice, fruity, very balanced with no overpowering acid.
Feel: Even with no head, carbonation still nice.
Overall: A very nice beer. Wish I could get this locally.
