3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 7/9/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe in early 2010. Pours hazy orange with an average, fizzy white head that quickly recedes to very thin lace. The nose is really classic, complex gueuze, with plenty of lemon, white wine vinegar, funk, and a touch of popcorn and vanilla oak. The flavor has all of the same qualities as the nose, and is nicely sour, but lacks a bit of the depth and complexity that make up an absolutely top tier gueuze. The body is medium and tannic with average, but stinging carbonation, and a long sour lemon and white wine vinegar finish.

Bottle, shared. Gold-amber pour with a few sparse bubbles of white foam. Aroma is funky, mild cheesy notes, oaky, light winey aromas. Taste is tart, light lactic and citric acidity. Palate is dry, very light carbonation (almost flat). Decent.

Bottle shared by Eric Teusink. Aroma is fruity tangerine and funky yeast. Flavor is cheesy funk and a little bit of fruit. Finish is a little metallic and a little awkward. Really interesting beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from west Lakeview liquor. Pours a cherry red with no head. Aromas of tart cherries, funk, grass and acidity. Very complex. Sour cherries up front dominate the taste with the funk holding the tartness on the palate. Just clings. Oak and nutty flavours coming out of the barrels. Cherry tart coats the palate. Great beer.

"Refreshingly funky. Grassy, lemony, barnyard-y. Quite carbonated but not overly so, the pucker hits just right and was thoroughly enjoyed..............."

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from a PUB’R capo. Pours turbid gold with minimal white head. Nose is amazing: super tart fruit, lactic acidity, really on a Cantillon level here. Tastes tart, but nor nearly as tart as Cantillons, witha very earthy and funky and yeasty flavor, a lot of fruit, apricot, mild pear, and a very smooth finish. This one was very good, and not so tart, but rather very smooth as it warmed. Just incredible. My only beef is that it is perhaps a TAD slightly under-carbonated for this style.
