COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages.  We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale. this is one complex beer.  Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and even olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Minimal head, decent amount of carbonation, very tart but subsidizes rather quickly, more fruity than oaky. Very good.

HippieFee (290) - - MAY 15, 2016
Large Format - Light golden color to it with a slight haze. Great tart flavor, barrel aged but I don’t taste any oak which is good. Not a complex beer but I love the flavor. Well balanced tartness, really enjoyed this beer.

Super clean/clear golden with suds of white head. Funky tart aroma. Lemony tart and moderately dry, just a touch of acidity in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daje (3467) - NORWAY - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle. Golden body with a lively white head. Aroma of apples, peach, barnyard. Taste is mostly sour though it rests on a sweet vanilla and malt character giving it balance. Funky and fresh, lasting tart dryness, this is a great one.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color beer with a medium foamy head with limited retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of funky yeast notes with light barnyard notes and some tart notes. Taste is a well balance mix of tart notes with some funky yeast and light barnyard feel. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity but still not close to the level that can be tasted in Belgian lambic. I loved the way they control the acidity level.

Sampled at Great American Beer Festival 9/24/15. Aroma of sour notes, straw, funky yeast and stone fruits. Hints of oak and vanilla in the flavor. Very nice and refreshing overall.

bastarda (382) - Freiburg, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2015
Kindly shared by Martin @wethopping BBQ; aromas of dry cider, wood and a hint of funk, continued in taste; moderately tart, still sweet; nicely balanced. Good and refreshing.
