4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked bottle. Pours a brilliantly clear pale gold with a thin white head and a steady stream of fine bubbles. Aroma is mild barnyard funk, light citrus, a mellow maltiness, a woodsy bitterness. Flavor is moderately sour and barnyard funky, lemon, lemongrass, mild woodiness, restrained fruitiness, low sweetness. Finishes dry. Incredibly refreshing. Light mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Could easily chug it; have to remind myself to sip it slowly to get all the complexity. One of my favorite gueuzes/sours.

Half of the bottle’s contents gushed out like an orange fountain that smelled like feet and cheese as I opened it. The remaining beer pour a hazy orange, with a small white head. The aromas are musty, barnyard, straw and hay, acetic acid and generally funky. The taste is dry and somewhat bitter. The mouthfeel is light, crisp and fizzy.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden ’typical’ gueuze color with fast decaying foam. Funky cheese feet gueuze smell. Little carbonation, dry smooth, yet furry layer in the mouth feeling. Moderately sourish. Super dry aftertaste. A calm gueuze. I personally prefer the little fresher and more alive gueuzes, but this one is still quite awesome.
