Bottle shared by me at jrallens.

Pours a sunny orange/yellow color, white head, thin collar, spotty lace. Nose is lots of orange peel citrus, funky barnyard, nice level of fruity tartness in there as well. Not very sharp at any point, very smooth and well-blended. Flavor is funky cheese, excellent tartness, citrus peel, slight pucker from the sourness, barnyard musk. Light body, light carbonation, dry finish.

This beer is simply outstanding and amazingly blended. As good or better then anything coming from 3F or Cantillon for sure. Not sure if Ill be able to try this again, being that its so limited, but man I would jump at the chance to try more of this. Simply, a winner.

Bottle shared by Joe Z on 10/8/16, thanks!
Drab, bronze-copper with an off-white head showing moderate retention. Great clarity.
The nose shows a promising blend of light acetic and stronger lactic acids, with orange-rind and peach-like fruitiness playing against moderate funk. Nothing intensely funky, but still enough light horseblanket, wet hay and light cheese. Quite elegant and seemingly very dry, with strong minerality and a touch of light wood. No alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth, its very dry, though there is obvious softness from malt/wheat. Begins quite nicely, with big, playful fruitiness and strong lactic qualities sharpening in to a moderate-to-strong acidity/sourness. Tons of citrus rind and light yogurt quality on the end with strong wood tannin and very light oak. Unfortunately, I found the carbonation to be a bit more loose/watery than typical of the best lambics but worse than that, there was a metallic character on the finish, not horribly strong, but still present. This definitely dampened my enjoyment, somewhat.

Bucketboy for the win! Thank you Joe! Light golden body with a small white collar. Mineral funk aroma, fresh rain falling. Wonderful scents. The flavor follows suit. Gentle acetic character. Medium-full on the palate. Puckering in the high cheek bones. This is fantastic.

ctipping (1517) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange. No head. Smells citrusy and cheesy. Grape must fruitiness. Tastes pretty tart. Strong oak. Lemon. Orange citrus. Medium low carbonation. Sourness builds. Becomes pretty sour in the finish and a little bit of cheese comes through as it warms. This is really nice, but not the most complex gueuze Ive had. Maybe masked my sourness.
