Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Big time thanks to Beau for sharing this. Hazed orange beer with a white head. This beer is pretty nice but the acidity is definitely on the heavy side. A whole lot of lemon juice and green apple. There’s some cobweb funk, yogurt, and musty oak. Nice fruit character of peach, kiwi, green apple, and pear. Maybe just a hint of sweetness to it and even a touch of bitter fruit skin. Certainly a solid beer, but not the most amazing thing I’ve had.

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine at the RB Best Awards - thanks again, Beau! Nice surprise. Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head. Has a really sour lemony, oaky, herbal flavor, with some minerals and straw, as well. The aroma is sawdust, herbs, pepper, pear, grains, and lime. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a really sour, somewhat dry and barely spritzy mouthfeel. Excellent gueuze.

joeneugs (5270) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle at RBWG. Big thanks to Beau for this one! It pours a clear golden color. The aroma is rather cheesy with some good funk and acid. The flavor is very cheesy and wine-like. Funky and extremely sour. No acetic vinegar or hot alcohol notes. A funky, cheesy mouth puckering masterpiece.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks to beau. Nose is a wonderful fruit bowl sour expression. Moderate lemon. Hazy deep yellow with a light white head. Some oxidation as it warms. Light skunk as well. Taste is like a limoncello and amazing with a light wood character and grate. Nice.

This bottle was offered by Beau SHN at RBWG. Thanks. Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with an off white head. Aroma has a bunch of cheese, lemon, oak, light barnyard. Aged Parmesan, quite sour, lemon, vanilla, tons of funk. Great in manner like Crianza.
