Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

Pours a golden yellow color, nose is tart and citrus, taste is quite sour, sharp bite, a little too much cider character and diacytle, but overall really nice.

Real solid American sour. Tons of nice fruity brett character in the nose and good and sour without being overly harsh. It’s not bone dry but the sweetness seems to emphasize the fruit. Not exactly gueuze but that is not a problem necessarily.

500 ml bottle. Aged about 5 years. Pours a dark orange color and topped by a thin whispy off white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of sour citrus fruit, acidity, funk, wheat, some grains, and a touch of bready sweetness. Nice sour and funky aroma. The flavor follows and shows tart citrus fruit with green apple and lemon shining through to go with more acidity, funk, wheat, and a hint of bready sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation still that leads to a lengthy mouth puckering and slightly dry finish. This is a fine sour ale and a good American example of a Gueuze. Surprising this has held up as well as it did and I’m really glad I got the chance to try it. Tasty stuff.

bottle at $th share, interesting, very basement blonde ale sour like and not very lambicy. Vinegar is low which is nice, less tart than allagashs. Very light and nothing bold, which works. Very tasty.

Pours golden with a decent head and some nice lacing on the glass.

The atom aid odd, sort of funky with some red apple and spice.. It’s got a nice funkiness and some wet limestone things going on. It’s weird, but it’s weird in a good way.

The flavor is dry with a good lemony flavor, some peaches and a nice all around sourness. The beer has a little bit of nuttiness and a little bit of brine.

I really wish I could have tried one of these when it was fresh, because it seems to have aged into something very unique and special.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. The aroma is rubber, band aids, feet, funk. Thin mouthfeel with sour fruit, nice tartness, very funky, strong brett, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Pour is clear/light amber with a medium white head that lasts for a while. Aroma and flavor of funky sour ester, oak chips, green apples, yeast, wheat grain, and lemons. Finish is lemon peel, sour mash, and sour fruit. Good.

Tasting at Jack’s RAH Annexe! Thanks to Bruce. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Good typical gueuze sourness, wet wood, and lemon but this is a tad on the acid side. Some balance brought by sweet vanilla oak. Light dry finish. Not bad.

Sammy (13000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Just passed fourth birthday. Mellow geuze that builds in sourness on palate. Smells like an American funky beer. Some apple juice but smooth. Still carbonated and a bit of white head on deep yellow, leaving lace.

JBPortland (1578) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottlw shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours cloudy orange with medium head. Nose is a complex funk with mixed musty spirit barrel spice notes and tart acidic stonefruit. Taste is similar with nice tart acidic fruit, musty grain, some barny funk, barrel. Finish is tart fruit funk woody citrus.
