From 750mL, RBSG grand tasting. Great funky-tart-Bretty gueuze nose, grapefruit. Medium amber clear with light haze, thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Greaet gueuze profile, though a little sweeter than I’d expect. Funky and Bretty with tons of grapefruit flavors. Finish is tart and refreshing with lactic funky after.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of funk, oak and white grapes. Taste follows, this is a Belgian-like funk. I would have a hard time distinguishing this from a gueuze in a bling tasting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Pours a golden color with a fine foam head. The aroma is very barnyard, musky, funky, some oak, and has a lemon citrus to it. The flavor was a medium puckering sour lemon taste with grape notes. There was a subtle sweetness that goes perfectly with the sour character of this brew. The finish was rather great in that it wasn?t too overbearing with the sour intensity. It lingers pleasantly. Overall this was a memorable brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Matt’s; bottled 3/30/2015
Cloudy golden color, small to no head. Compared to real Gueuzes, this one has much more cheese; depending on the day it could be passable or shitty; I’ll go for passable today. Lowly carbonated, the mouthfeel is a bit too oily; sour and lemony, but also the cellar character is strong and pleasant, although the light cheese touch is less exciting.
Nice attempt, but as per the details it’s miles away from any Belgian Gueuze.

Bottle @ Mike’s. Thanks, Mike. A clear orange beer with a white head. Sort of funky and citrusy aroma. A lot of yogurt. Slight metallic note, but good fruity grape, grape skin, and apple. Lots of sour lemon and lime. A little bit of a milky, musty funk. Kind of damp and mushroomy. Interesting beer. Kind of reminds me of Hanssens.
