Sampled during the South Carolina tasting and right after Lente. This one pours a cloudy tinged, dull gold with a white frothy lacing. It’s a lot clearer than Lente. It smells of freshly cut apples, barnyard, brett, and is definitely is smelling fresher than the Lente. The apples are still very vibrant and fresh. The flavors too are full of vibrant and crisp sour apples with a drive head on into brett and hay. It drinks a lot more crisp and clean than Lente as well. This is probably the best that I’ve had of the style, seconds after Lente. Great gueuze.

Thanks to ahalloin for sharing this a few weeks back. Served in a snifter and reviewed from notes. Pours a really nice bright golden-yellow with a fluffy white head and some good lacing. Clear beer with visible carbonation. The nose is really quite nice, though not quite as good as the Lente. Bright notes of citrus and lemon zest plus plenty of funk and light earth. The flavor is moderately fruity with some orange and green apple plus a good dose of lemon. Mild acidity and plenty of Brett-induced funk and earth. Crisp carbonation and a dry finish with a nice earthy funk throughout. Light acidity. Absolutely stunning.

Bottle. Pours apricot with white head. Nose/taste of funky cheese, tart citrus, wild yeast and wood. Medium body. Nicely balanced tartness. Very clean in the finish which is dry and tart.

750 ml bottle courtesy of mreusch, tasted along with the Lente. The pour is a haze yellow golden, with a white head that falls quick with some nice lacing. The aroma has grass up front, along with citrus lemon, barnyard funk and a bit less of the house character than the Lente. Nicely melded aromas. The taste is grass, lemon citrus and barnyard fink of the nose. The lemon citrus also has a bright sweetness, like a light honey. The interplay of the tart citrus peel and the sweetness was nice. The palate is light bodied with bright carbonation, and a nice citrus tart bite to the finish. Very clean all around, this seemed more "put together" than the Lente. Thanks again for sharing these bottles Matt.
