Great lambic, opens beautifully. Nose is quite citric and tart, not overly sour. Funky yeasty and barnyard, but not over bearing. Flavor is citric as well, nicely soured without going overboard again. As it opens and mellows, the flavors become much more pleasant, with grassy notes and nice citrus and faint cheese notes, perhaps? Really a great drinkable lambic.

Awesome american-made geueze. Cloudy yellow orange pour with pretty much no head. Subtle barnyard fruity sweaty horse ass on the nose. Fruity brett goodness on the taste, not overpowering. Slightly tart but not crazy. Awesome awesome awesome stuff.

The beer is golden yellowish orange and fairly hazy with a small white head. The aroma offers funk, citrus, hay, oak. Nice flavor. Smooth on the palate with some funky citrus. Acetic character disappears rapidly in the finish. Pretty good.

It has a dry wine bitterness to it, it seems to want to go sweet on you but never does. Very unique!!
