FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled at Of Love & Regret - Pub & Provisions; January 2013
The beer arrives from the tap with a lightly hazed, gold color. It is topped by a pale, head. The aroma smells tart, with lactic acid notes, and with touches of urea. There is quite a bit of fruit character in the nose as well, and this is backed by an earthy grain character that has notes of dried straw / hay to it.

The flavor is not nearly as sour as I was expecting; there is a definite tartness here but it is fairly soft, especially for a Gueuze / Lambic. This has a hay like grain character to it and it is lightly funky with an earthy, sort of musky character to it.

This is definitely quite a bit different from the bottled product; it needs more sourness, but it is still quite good in the end. It has more of an earthy & funky character to it than biting tartness, but in honesty, even the former is held well in check; clean, would be a good way to describe this. Somehow comes off as being a bit like a tamed Gueuze and I wonder if not being bottle conditioned has an effect on this (but I can’t see that being the total explanation here).

ALIBALI (790) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2016
Alles gut. Ist halt sehr leicht und viele der Aromen kommen dadurch nur schwach zur Geltung. Fruchtig, würzig und mit den typischen Funk ausgestattet, ist diese Gueuze durch und durch solide. 0,1/1 Jetson, von Fass beim ZYTHOS BEER FESTIVAL 2016 in Leuven.
