Bottle (500 ml). Bottled in 2010. Thanks to MatSciGuy for this one! Bright golden/amber with a small white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of honey sweetness, light sourness, wood and light brettanomyces. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet & sour with honey, wood and light floral notes. Medium body. Light to moderate carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Slightly dry, but not enough for the style. Nice balance between sweet and sour (though it might be a little too sweet). A tad too linear, but still very interesting. Tasty.

500 ml bottle served in a New Glarus flute. Bottled 8/6/10. Thanks to sweemzander for the share!
A: Pours a clear yellowish color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace.
S: Fruity and sweet with a slightly tart lemony note. Grassy, wet oak and a hint of lemon peel.
T: Lots going on in the taste. Tart apple, lemon spritz, musty basement and grass. Sweet vanilla with some pale malts and a little oak. Sour lemon notes as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation. Sour and sweet finish.
O: Really good. Definitely enjoyed this one. Easy drinking with a nice complex taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is quite funky with some odd apple skin like notes, light brett, and some light oak. The flavor is pretty sour and funky with some cereal grains and light oak. A light bit of acetic acid on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with an acetic bite, fizzy lively carbonation. OK beer, but it doesn’t stand up to the classics of the style. Pretty nice American Wild Ale though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit allusions and biscuity cereals move into a delightfully peppery wilderness in this quenching P-Lambic/Wild Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy beige.
-Mouthfeel is appropriately lean, but carbonation is nowhere near what a Gueuze normally has.
-Drinkability is higher than the average Gueuze’s, which I appreciate.
-Fruitiness spans from mango to citrus fruit.
-No idea why they called this a Gueuze if it wasn’t blended...
