4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Sunset-orange with moderate haze. Beautiful sunset colors. One inch of off-white fuzz. Dry, oaky funk in the nose. Dried lemon, rose petals, brett, white wine, dried flower petals, potpourri. Complex, like perfume. Fruity up front in the flavor, with a bit of apple and underripe pear. Vinegar acidity is mild. Dry, oaky chardonnay. Finish is balanced perfectly -- fruity-sweet and moderately sour. Very mild carbonation, nearly flat. Medium body, smooth and silky. A sour you can drink a lot of.

P: Clear copper colored with a one finger head that doesn’t last long. S: Lactic acid, yogurt, peaches, grapes, a bit of butter. T: Acid-y, sweet peach, oak and a bit of yogurt in the end. M: Thin and highly carbonated. Very sweet and tart. O: Nothing that I found extraordinary, but it sure was sour. A bit to acid-y for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have tart green apples, lemon citrus, nice sour acidity, but it doesn’t pop like I hoped it would probably because the carbonation was softer, still good but at the price I want more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, shared. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head, kind of bubbly, fades to minimal. Kind of a stronger, softer carbonation than I expect from a gueuze, fades to a level I like after a bit, though. Medium plus body, kind of slick. Sastisfying bigger sour taste, tang, moderate sweet taste. Oak, big lemon citrus, mild funkiness. Up front there was a lot of green apple, but that becomes less noticeable as it opens and warms up. Solid sour ale, was hoping for more from this though... Seems to be lacking something for me. Little too tangy maybe. Not quite refreshing like I kinda expected.
