Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages.  We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale. this is one complex beer.  Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and even olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.

Easily one of the best sour beers I’ve ever had. Murky pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is acidic, tart, grassy, citric, funky. The nose on this is unbelievable. Brett is present, but not overpowering, acidity is present but not overpowering, and the malt backbone of the beer just shines through. this was a well crafted beer recipe that held the souring process amazingly well. So complex on the palate. No one flavor stands out, but all of the grassy, funky sour notes play beautifully together. What a beer!

Shared bottle at Antenna America 2014 version. Nice tartness, but feels a little thin. Getting there, but maybe lacking the Belgian spark. Enjoyable though.

Bottle shared. 2014 vintage. Pretty impressive stuff, rich fruity balsamic with lingering sourness and some wine quality. Another masterpiece from these guys.

2014 bottle shared at AA. Tons of gooseberry, lemon and grass all over the nose. Some pinot grigio notes. Sour, light, crisp carbonation and refreshing. The perfect summer beer for a rooftop in Yokohama.

Large Format - Light golden color to it with a slight haze. Great tart flavor, barrel aged but I don’t taste any oak which is good. Not a complex beer but I love the flavor. Well balanced tartness, really enjoyed this beer.

Super clean/clear golden with suds of white head. Funky tart aroma. Lemony tart and moderately dry, just a touch of acidity in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden body with a lively white head. Aroma of apples, peach, barnyard. Taste is mostly sour though it rests on a sweet vanilla and malt character giving it balance. Funky and fresh, lasting tart dryness, this is a great one.
