Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Ryan! Pours a clear gold with little to no head, the aroma has more zest than sourness or funk, the flavor has a nice sour front end with a huge fruity finish, kind of a subtle sour than overpowering, the mouthfeel is pretty nice, good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle through trade poured a deep golden in color with a ring of white bubbles on the glass. Aroma has sweet white grape skins, light acidity, dusty brett, and some lemon. Mouth feel is light and there is carbonation but it is a bit low once the initial fizz wears off. Flavor has light acidity and takes more of a yeast funk direction with a nice lemony highlight. There is a gueuze quality here for sure but it falls short in the dryness and it leaves me feeling like it wanted to develop further but never got there.

750 bottle, believe from Alan. Clear gold with off white head. Mild granny smith apple, vinegar, oak, some grapes, bit of funk and sour. Moderate carbonation and body, chardonnay, becomes very dry, sour.

Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma of funk, oak and vinegar. Taste is slightly tart, really funky. Bitter and funky. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks, Miller! Cloudy gold pour, minimal crisp carbonation, almost like a Berliner. Tart fruit, some oak, lactobacillus in the nose. Bright, prickly mouthfeel with a very long, acetic finish. Taste is just a bit underdeveloped to me, as there are some almost buttery notes and an occasionally washed out impression. Pretty damn good try, don’t get me wrong, just a bit short of fully impressive.

A lightly hazed golden gueuze with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice corky mix of grapes, Brett and wood barrel. In mouth, a nice sweet yet puckering gueuze with smooth ground cherries, acetic acid, smooth. Shared with GRM, Pushkinwow, and Ian, March 8 2013.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with minimal to no head. Smells fairly authentic, some light citrus rind, cellar funkiness, just a little acetic, and some light oakiness. The flavor is a little too sweet up front, lots of powdered sugar like flavor, quite oaky compared to most Belgian classics. Some fairly aggressive sourness, but not the biting acidity that sometimes is a turn off for me. Fairl short finish. Mouthfeel is fairly dry, moderate pinpoint carbonation, some lingering sweetness. Not a bad ’Wild Ale’, but not the best Gueuze.

Enormous waftng geuze aroma, pleasant. Yellow bodied, lots of yeast chunks, of course particularly at the last sample. Smooth mouthfeel. The potential tartness, which increases by sample, is well malted, so that drinkability is very good. A very good geuze.

Pours pale yellow with no head. The nose is nice lemony citrus, vinegar and barnyard funk. The taste is sweet and a little sour, not to balanced though a bit on the sweet side. Maybe just needs more time. The mouthfeel is crisp yet sticky and the body is heavy with a long finish.

750ml from Levi’s unstoppable sour stash. Hazy bright orange. Sour, but mellow, restrained, which is nice for a Bruery beer. Lemon, creamy malt. Very lactic, hyper easy..maybe end of the bottle feel. Either way, this is a reall nice beer.
