3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a batch 2 bottle (2015).
Aroma is nice with a lot of fruity funk to it. Lots of pineapple with lighter citrus. Some lemon and orange with a light earthy, barnyard note. Light oak notes. Some light green apple and stone fruit notes.
Pours a hazy, pale golden color with a small, thin, white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers in the center. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic with some light citrus notes. Moderate pineapple, white grape skins, hints of stone fruit. Medium light phenolic notes with a hint of plastic. Medium light oak notes with a faint barnyard note. Lots of tannins.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a decent American sour. Lots of tannins though to the point of being overpowering in the flavor. Acidity is a touch harsh. Nice fruit notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very tiny pour from a trusted Untappd friend who dropped in to share a few beers last week. 75CL bottle, this pour was nearly flat, had a dark orange, slightly hazy appearance. looked a bit shaken up and lacked that sheen / shine of a traditional Geuuze. Really good aroma. Tart lemons, basement mold, grassy with some fresh mulch. tart and some rum or oak. this is a super funky beer, pretty sour and borderline too much sour for me with a very soft, light carbonation on the mouth swish. really enjoying a light clementine and orange citrus taste. Finish is lingering sour and earthy bitterness with some moldy cheese. Interesting but it’s not really on par with the Belgian Oude Gueuze counterparts. Why not a sour ale?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 (Rating #9,400) Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours cloudy and golden with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma offers fruitiness and barnyard-like funkiness and pungency. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity, tart and funky. Finishes tart with a modest measure of crusty bitterness. Thanks to ctipping for popping the top on this world class gem!
