3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light honey/straw color. Brilliant and bubbly. Small white head settles down after a huge foamy pour. Not much in the way of lacing left behind, but the head does try and cling to the side. Big sour, earthy, woody, peppery aroma. Little bit of funk. Dry tart and sweet taste. Sour fruit and a woody flavor. Very tart. Acetic character, but balanced fairly well with a subtle sweetness from the malt. Very decent lambic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into Cigar City snifter. I was lucky enough to catch someone purchasing the last bottle at Coffee District so I asked for a pour. Light yellowish color with a thin white head. Aroma was tart and sweet with hints of lemon and orange peel. Not overly sour but just enough to make the cheeks pucker. Quite an amazing beer.

Pours a dirty gold with a tall, thin head that disappeared faster than I poured the beer. Lactobacillus on the nose, great sour taste. Good bite from the carbonation. Finishes dry with your mouth watering for more.

750 ml bottle at redlight redlight. Lemon peel with horsey funk on the nose. Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Very tart lemon and citrus upfront with just a hint of sweetness in the middle before delivering a finishing punch of sour citrus finishing out very very dry. Excellent gueuze.

bottle. moderate lactic acid sourness. touch of dry basement and leather laden funk. more creamy doughy wheat sweetness than other great gueuzes, but didn’t take to much away from the enjoyment. less dry than good examples of the style. not terribly complex, but tasty, and enjoyable to drink. better than expected. would drink again. easy drinkin. good gueuze to share with folks new to the style as well.
