Poured from a "corked and caged" 12.7oz bottle into a tulip glass.
Deep, cloudy apricot in color, with a huge frothy head of eggshell-white foam. A beautiful looking beer.
Aroma-Sharp, spicy Brett yeast, cidery note.
Taste-An almost puckering tartness, briny, sharp Brett notes, but bubbly and light on the tongue. Very effervescent and refreshing with and almost delicate character despite being very flavorful on the palate. Quite complex for its lightness. Almost like a very tart, slightly soured Saison.
My first Gueuze and quite the unique and flavorful experience. Excellent!

Pours a hazy, copper/gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong sourness, strong yeast, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of floral notes, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of a gueuze. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a high carbonation level. There is also a strong tartness and sourness. Tastes of sourness, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of citrus. Overall, good appearance, body, mouth feel, blend, and aroma.

Pours a golden amber hue with a creamy ever present two finger head and lacing here and there, the smell is horse blanket, granny smith apples, a touch of vinegar and Brett, the feel is creamy, moderately carbonated and smooth with sour tastes of apples, grapes, musty funk and finished with a Brett funkiness and overall a great interpretation of the style that id buy again in a heartbeat.
