Bottle at BA Buffalo bottleshare. pours golden hue with silky white head. nose of barnyard, hay, and horse hair... classic brett. Taste is moderately puckering with shades of flower and cracky sweet ness. body is light but creamy. What a treat.

Hazy golden / light orange with a vanishing sparkling head. Flavour is sourdough, cellar notes, wood, a hint of cooling mint in the end. Low sweetness and average sourness, that is not overwhelming at all. Light bittter finish and long lasting mouth watering sourness. Easy gueuze, highly drinkable and tasty.

W aromacie świetne nuty owocowe, przede wszystkim winogrona, ale też lekka brzoskwinia, dojrzałe jabłko, leciutka dzikość, super! W smaku wytrawny, lekka derka z winogronowymi akcentami, średnia kwaskowatość, brakowało pestki na finiszu. Nie jest to top, ale piwo naprawdę świetne.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY for Zwanze Day. Yellowish golden pour, minimal head. Quite a bit of funk. Dry. A little barnyard-ish but not overly so. Not extremely tart but good sourness throughout.

Bottle @ brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a small, white head. Aroma is a lot of barnyard, appleskin, bile. Taste is sour with appleskin. Not too much so.

kran w jabeerwocky. jasne, przejrzyste, z kiepska piana. w aromacie owocowosc (jakies pomarancze, brzoskwinie) i juz kwasnosc. w smaku kwasnosc bardzo wyczuwalna, choc nie jakas ekstremalna ale niewatpliwie dominujaca. owoce z aromatu tez czuc. bardzo lekkie i orzezwiajace, malo ciala, srednie wysycenie, na koncu lekka goryczka. dobre.

2014, 37,5cl bottle. Slightly hazy, rather light orange. White small head. Mild tartness in aroma, hints of lemon, some funk. A lot going on in the taste, lemon, medium sourness, a zesty "bitterness" in the end (which I think clashes some with the rest of the experience, felt the same with 3F Geueze). Overall really enjoyable, fresh, medium/average carbonation.

On tap at Kyber Pass Pub as part of their "Wild on the Streets" event. Pours light orange with a one finger white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of barnyard funk, wet hay, Greek yogurt, sour fruits, band aids, and vinager. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a pretty a pretty funky,wild taste. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a bome dry, sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty, complex, sour beer that I would of found gross a few years ago.

franchement, je tourne mal ! Je commence à vraiment bien aimer les gueuzes et la façon étrange qu’elles ont de titiller le palais. Je ne saurais comparer celle-ci avec d’autres vu mon peu d’expérience en la matière ... Pour autant une jolie acidité de citrons en saumure sans le côté aigrelet désagréable ... ça fait énormément salivé et ça désaltère très efficacement !

37.5cl Rather fresh. Some 20 years ago I would have spat it out, and complained that my beautiful lager went totally spoiled and rancid. Now I am learning to appreciate and enjoy every single drop of every gueuze I can get my hand on. Strong cellar and oak aroma. Pours pale blond hazy with some head. Gently carbonated medium bodied taste bud tickler. I am desperate to get my hands on unblended. Love it. If you have not had any decent lambics lately - this is definitely a one to try.
