750mL bottle. Pours a pale reddish amber with a finger or two of head. Smells like a balanced geueze, but slightly sweeter with touch of ripe cherry. Taste is sour, somewhat tart, with some barnyard, hay and bitter citrus peel. Finish is nice, the sour and bitter flavors fade away evenly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden orange with a small ivory-colored head. Nice lacings.
The aroma is funky with notes of aged cheese, grape skin and fructose.
The flavor is sour and tightly held with funky undertones. Motes of grass and lemon. The acidity mellows out towards the end as a fairly noticeable sweetness develops. Ends with notes of minerals and tart fruits.
Medium body, very dry and sparkling.
A good one. In the close proximities of gueuze territory.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
THIS is why I drink beer!!!!!
Clear gold, a nice column of carbonation leads to a fluffy white head in my ommegang glass. Nose is lemon pits, lavendar, slight oxidation (fades w. time), tingly grapefruit juice all bound together by hay-like malt. Flavor is much less acidic than the nose implies. There is certainly some nice lemony acidity but that is tempered by pils malt, grapefruit, general funk, grapes. Finish is lemon pit & white grapes, unripe yellow plums. Understated, smooth & wonderful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is bright with lemon zest and juices, bitter, piny hops, earth, dust, and cheese.
Taste is dusty old hops, intense lemon rind, cheese,a bit of band-aid/gauze, and lemon juice. I also get an underlying crisp biscuit base.
Finish is sour, slightly bitter, and refreshing.
