375 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Pours exceptionally fizzy and spritzy, but the head is quick to dissipate. What remains is a filmy lace over the body. The body reminds me of a Helles beer, blonde and golden with a bit of a malted hue, but still displaying superb clarity. 5

The smell is like funky peach my brain says. My brain also tells me that this aroma reminds me of some the great 3F beers I've had before. There's some earthiness, tartness, tanginess, and even a saline-like smell. Something suggest pineapple too. I will say though, the flavors here don't quite pop; I have to search a bit. 4.25

More tart and less funky than the nose and the peach/pineapple flower shines. Also getting some crisp apple type of flavor and a lingering earthiness and floral yeast flavor that is a nice exit. 4.5

As I must always point out: NO VINEGAR! Love it when a wild doesn't have that quality. This has a slight acidity and tartness and a bit of yeasty, floral funk. It drinks quite refreshingly with a bubbly intro that leads to a dryer, crisper finish. 4.25

Great stuff. Maybe not as clean as my favorite from 3F but still pretty exceptional in the wild world.

Thanks Matt.

App- Out of the bottle this pours a light hay color with a yellow to orange center. Even a bit of tan mixed in there. Small bubbles form quickly with about a 1-1/2 finger head that was fast fading and went down to a small pond layer. No cling or lace, but none really expected.

Smell- Has a lot going on. When I take a first sniff, I get a lot of lemon and some sweetness behind it. Not cloying sweet but not what I was expecting. When it gets a little warmer I get more of the hay with a small funk behind it. I pick up some flora notes I cant place with a little bit of fresh oak behind it as well.

Taste- To me this was a bit of a odd Gueuze. Didnt have that normal european taste. This was for of an american twist. It was good, just not what I was expecting. This had a very tart flavor with a small spice note I couldnt place. The oak is there with a white wine flavor behind it. The flora creates a dual flavor for me with hay and a small funk.

Mouth- This was more where this shined. Light, tart, some acid behind it with a nice peppery and floral bite. The oak comes through with nice remaining acidity but doesnt require the tums. A lighter body with a smooth carbonation. A small prickly feel as well.

Drink- Its very good. I can see how its highly rated. It for me was an American Gueuze and I am okay with that. Very happy to have landed and drank a bottle with #properglassware. Now to track down a Red to compare.
