Pours a darker, cloudy gold with minimal fizzy head. Nose is musty, but refined, with clear hints of crisp pear, citrusy, and barnyardy. Very well balanced on the palate, tart without being overwhelming, mild body and warmth, finishing grassy and earthy. A lovely gueuze.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy gold, white head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is grassy, lemon zest, funk, and some nice sourness. Taste is sour and inviting. There are some nice funky flavors going on, but this bottle has a little bit of a metallic finish, causing me to lower the score. High carbonation and light body, bone dry finish. It’s really good stuff, but the metallicness in this bottle lowers the score; if future bottles don’t have the metallic finish, my score will be higher.

A hazy golden colored beer, with a big beige head, which disappears quickly. The aroma is sour with notes of oak. It’s also sweet/sour of citrus. The bubling is like champagne. The taste is woody and sour. The sweet/sour of lemon, citrus and grapefruit. It has a dry, smooth flavor and a little bitter aftertaste. It’s great to enjoy from these kinds of beer.
