Review #500!

L -- Golden straw body with robust effervescence and a handsome white head. Good retention and lacing
S -- Super funk-forward. Generic farmyard smells, wet hay, earth. Quite strong and pungent
T -- Oak barrel, lemon, white wine tannins, hay funk. Quite restrained tartness, which allows for more of the naturally innoculated character to come through.
F -- Medium- mouthfeel, high effervescence. Very drinkable and excellent with food. No bitterness at all
O -- Definitely a worthy torchbearer of the style. The tartness is not overpowering, which I really appreciate.

L: cloudy orange hue. Barely any head, settled very quickly and barely leaves a ring around the glass.
S: sour indeed but mild and not overwhelming
T: Tart lemon zest, funk, sweet tart, oak balanced
F: fresh, citrus forward, dry

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.
