4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle generously shared by Doug, thanks! Aroma is quite fruity, lots of lemon and grapefruit, grapes, touch of sour apple, lightly funky and sweaty, wheat, very complex. Pours mostly clear, straw color, minimal white head with a bit of lacing. Flavor follows the nose - pleasantly acidic, lots of lemon, some grapefruit, grapes, and apples. Funky and slightly sweaty, but the brett character isn’t overwhelming, wheat malt, some earthiness, wood, leather. Light body, medium-high carbonation. A complex and delicious brew.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2012 Bottle thanks to Walt. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head. The aroma is rubber and faint fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sour fruit and crisp finish. Easy to drink an impressive Sour from Lost abbey.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This just IS gueuze. No two ways about it and a very very nice gueuze at that! As far as the finished product goes, it follows the traditional style to a T. Super mouth puckeringly tart. The tartness reduces as the beer warms. Lots of lemon and earthy country goodness with some back of the through funk. Alcohol is completely hidden. medium bodied. Just outstanding. Its an absolute crime this stuff is so hard to get with cutthroat prices/trade value if you do find an offer. The good news is that there are gueuzes that are just as good that are much more widely available and much cheaper (though I do hear there is a Cantillon/3F shortage in the US at the moment... no worries, Hanssens FTW even when Cantillon/3F are plentiful). Cheers to the folks that created this--the only American’s to create gueuze--and cheers to thebaldwizard aka mojuck for making this beer happen for me. Best of luck on your noble venture my good sir!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pour is a light hazy gold with minimal white head. Aroma is funky lemon sock (which could be a cool band name) with a touch of champagne-like dryness and a touch of barnyard. Flavor is also initially dry with notes of lemon funk, tartness, hay, light earthiness, and a faint herbal quality. Really very good beer. A little light on body but otherwise awesome.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Slight haze, yellow-ish, minimal head, decent lacing. Huge apricot aroma, biting lemon notes, lacto, faint dusty cereal notes. Flavor much the same. Apricot up front, lemon and lacto sourness takes over through middle. Highly attenuated, very dry through finish. Soft/billowy carbonation. Very well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2011 Sampled at the Saint Louis Ratebeer Gathering in a tulip glass. Thanks, Vince, a definite highlight of the night! Poured a hazy orangish straw color with weak white head and some Belgian lace. Aromas of wheat, mild malted grain, spring thaw, and definite lambic fermentation characteristics. Light citrusy wheat beer flavor with layers of unfamiliar subtleties. Tart, sour, crisp, spritzy mouthfeel. Extremely complex, long-lasting aftertaste. Cool collaboration concept. Delicious.

Sampled at the St. Louis RB gathering. It poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma was both acidic and tart with lemon and oak along with some funk. The flavor was equally tart with lemon, vinegar, some oakiness and some funk. A very good brew.
