Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike! The beer appears light golden colored with a thin, wispy head that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some nice funk, along with earth, grass, hay, straw, outdoors, mineral water. Smells very enticing - nicely done. The flavor is clean and refreshing, with a subtle and elegant lactic presence followed by a mildly acetic finish. Not on par with the elite gueuzes from Belgium, but a very nice beer, and undoubtedly one of the better attempts from an American brewery. Light bodied and easy drinking. Overall, this was solid and enjoyable. I would have this again.

Drake (13259) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2017
375ml bottle from the brewery. Murky orange, large fizzy offwhite head, good retention. Aroma of oak, white grape, apricot, dandelion, funk, musty mold. Taste is bright apricot, white grape, pepper, strong funk. Thin-medium bodied, high carbonation, very strong lingering tartness.

From notes. Enjoyed at a bottle share at Seans on December 29. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nice cloudy golden yellow with a thicker white head that slowly dissipates, leaving no lace. The aroma is really funky up front. There is a light tart fruitiness, a strong dusty barnyard to it, and a little horse blanket on the finish. Its interesting, and not quite what I would call a gueuze. Its close, but not quite. The flavor is much of the same. There is a woodiness to it in addition to the funk. The barnyard kicks up a little more and drowns out the tart fruitiness. The horse blanket exists on the finish with a little sweatiness. The mouth feel is lighter and pretty crisp with a lingeringly funky and lightly spicy finish. Its really dry and not as tart as I would hope. Interesting beer.

From a 375 ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold. Funky farmhouse aroma. Flavors of vinyl, some caramel and horse blanket. As weird as it sounds, this is a really nice beer.

Beer5000 (6266) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2016
375 ml bottle @ Nacht van de Grote Dorst 2016. Unclear, pale golden body with a rather small white head. Aroma is tart, funky, acidic, lemon and some wood. Pretty classic but less pronounced than a small bunch of Belgium Geuze thats present at the table. Flavor is also a bit milder than the Belgium samples, but very refined and smooth. Its the real deal, but still a rather different experience. Mild acidity, smooth fruit, wood, mild funk, balanced acidity. Very nice, glad to finally have the opportunity to taste one of the most authentic lambic based brew outside Belgium.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. 2015 bottle. Cloudy shiny yellow. Great aroma of barnyard, cobwebs, sweat, oak, fresh fruits, light vinegar note. Sour flavor, dry, fresh, funky, fruity, oaky, kinda lemony. Medium-bodied. Great stuff, feels authentic.

Had the privilege to drink this back to back with 3 Fonteinen Oude Gouze. This was a bit more muscular, woodier, especially right out of the bottle, but settled in to a nice tart lemon-lime experience.
