COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2013
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. Serving type: bottle

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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
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...

Bottle.

mcberko (7242) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from javit (thanks Adam), pours a clear bronze / copper with a small white head. Aroma is moderately funky, with dry tart light fruits, oak barrels, brett and other wild yeast character. Flavour is very tart, with moderate funkiness, lots of oak barrel complexity, wild yeast and a light vinegar / acidic quality. Quite complex and tart, but tastes absolutely nothing like a traditional Belgian lambic, just like an American sour. Decent stuff for what it is, but it’s a big stretch classifying this as a lambic.
