FlacoAlto (3810) - 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).

hawthorne00 (2549) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2014
Hazy gold with a white head that retreats to the rim. Aroma of underripe apricots, lemon, cider vinegar. Slippery texture is lovely - it feels light, but lively and far from watery. Some apricot and hay that hint of sweetness with brooding old lemon and apple sourness, dryish at the end with wood or apricot stones. Deeply refreshing.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas - Brussels. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head that settles into a cream. Lovely grassy aroma, light musky funk, some tangerine. Light to medium sweet flavor with hints of alcohol, moderate and cleansing acidity, some citrus fruits, wood, grass. Medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Clean finish with mild sour twang, tart lemon, tangerine, further grassy bitterness and woody dryness. Wonderful stuff.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap @ 10 East - Super happy to see they tapped a gueuze. Definitely an above average gueuze, but not elite...not yet. A medium funky aroma with lemon, dusty leather, acidic and oak. Most, if not all, of the sweetness is gone. Lemons, medium sour and acidic levels, underripe grapes and oak. It doesn’t kick you in the balls with its sour levels, but you know it’s there. Nice.
