375ml bottle from West Lakeview. Pours a golden amber color with a big, fluffy white head. Aroma is lemon, musty, funky, oak. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sour, lemon, oak, Earthy, a little yeasty, with a tart, dry finish. Good, but I like other Gueuzes more, especially considering the price.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 2013 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Fresh and quite pungent nose, manure and juicy tropical fruit pressings. Hazy copper/straw colro. Gentle, light pickled fruit, dark sort of citrus bleeding on the tongue, bitter fruit rind in finish. Thin-medium and puckering. Brash stuff. A bit of a show off, too. Refreshing young punk beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has an orange-amber color, no head. Low carbonation, reluctant aromas of floral hints, some leather, young grapes, with no tartness in the nose at all.
Upwelling fruits in the beginning, with a very smooth mouthfeel, backed up by musty yeast. Then, sour tartness brings a new layer to the beer, without rolling over the established smoothness. Due to the lack of carbonation in this one, it becomes a little heavier on the palate, and therefore does not get distracted by metallic carbonation. This leaves the attention on the acidic sourness, mingled with grainy malt and oaken notes, which lingers on the palate in a gentle, fruity way for a long time. Also a slight sweetness is recognizable, in a soft, wine-like fashion, which gets washed away, as the lemon zest orientated aftertaste begins to dry out the palate. The sourness nontheless is pleasant on the tongue and well balanced throughout, as it leaven space for impressive sour and bitter notes.
