Chilled for a few months in the fridge; likely no aging occurred, just more of a state of suspended animation.

Golden hue that’s slightly cloudy; neither clear nor turbid. Light head that disappears quickly.

Palate-zapping tartness on the nose - green apple, lemon zest, sour candy - with an underlying funkiness; not much, just a whiff.

Taste is a pleasant, though pronounced, sourness lightened up by a toasted grain malt base and a hint of musty attic. Lacto-tartness zips to the back of the mouth and dances a jig. Not mouth puckering but its got oomph.

Drinks crisp and finishes dry. Lingering tartness on the palate but it’s refreshing and light which lends itself to an enjoyable session.

Poured from 750 ml. bottle to wine glass.

A: Hazy golden. 1 in. white head.
S: Sour blueberry, grape, strawberry, and melon. A little dusty, and some key lime.
T: Some citrus and berry in the front of tongue, resembling sweettarts. A moderate tartness takes over the rest of the finish.
M: Medium. Puckering sour finish.
O: Nice sour ale. Got it at a discount, so even better!

2014 Bottle

A: Moderately sour with a light funkiness, overall pretty balanced with lemon and grapefruit like character and a slight oak aroma.

A: Deep gold color, clear, with a moderate white uniform head that quickly fades into a thin ring.

T: Moderately strong sourness with a balanced malt/wheat and funk character. The funk is faint and there is a light oak vanilla quality with a lightly dry finish.

with a bright tartness that is bordering on sour. Lemons. green plum, and sour grapes. I detect faint funk and some wood, even a bit of vanilla.crisp, dry finish

M: Medium light body with moderately light carbonation and light, but pleasing acidity.

O: Tasty; the beer starts off a bit aggressively acidic, but with some cellaring the beer mellow out some of the sharpness, while retaining the fruit, sour character.

Spot on. Everything a lambic should be. Barnyard and tart aroma give way to tart sour taste up front. Soon, complex wet-hay and sharp sour in mid palate. Finish is more earthy. Yet, classic high-carbonation levels keep the beer bright and lively and help dry the beer out well. Andrew Bell outdid himself with this. Better than 90% of the Belgian lambics I've had. When I teach the style in the future, this is the beer I'll bring out.

2015 vintage. Nice initial head leaving ring until done. Smells very funky with that unmistakable Brussels yeast nose. Taste is very sour and earthy, somewhat sweat with dry finish.

Spot on for style and by far the best US Gueuze I've had. Better then many Belguin brands. Worth getting.
