3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this at a tasting at Total Wine in Laguna Hills, CA. This golden pour has very little head but had the sour/funky taste I’d expect in a gueuze.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is bright citrus and stone fruits with a bit of oak, a hint of a dirty martini, and a light barnyard funk. It’s a murky straw hue with a soapy white head that has moderate retention and very little lace. The beer is medium high sweet, medium sour, and medium light bitter. The texture is oily and thin with a fizzy carbonation and a medium light body with flavors of pineapple, apricot, and lemon zest as well as a dry oak and light herb touch which strengthens at the finish with a olive tartness. There’s a cloying, lingering aftertaste of under ripe fruit, oak, and olives, but overall, it’s refreshing and relatively clean and crisp.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Hopcat Detroit. From notes 2 months ago. Mostly clear gold pour with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is mostly sour lemons and vinegar with some light hay and grass. Tastes very sour without much flavor really. Lemons, grass, and light barnyard. Not nearly enough funkiness to make it stand out. Very acidic too which I don’t generally enjoy.

Nicely balanced. Mostly tart citrus notes, but there is some "funk" in there as well that makes for an interesting drink. One of the better commercially available lambics out there... especially from the U.S.!

Pour from a bottle in NYC. Fairly clear gold/orange. Nice apricot, mustiness, and light citrus on the nose, alongside a bigger more cutting lemon funk. Taste gives bright apricot and orange, alongside mustiness, apples, lemon juice, and light funk. Medium to high acidity. Lingering spice, lemon and funk. Nice sharp finish. Very good.
