My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.17
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottled on 10th October 2016. Poured into a Cantillon gueuze glass.
Appearance: Very lightly cloudy, still see through, golden blonde colour with a just under two finger white head that dissipated quickly to nothing and left behind no lacing.
Aroma: Funky, tart, grape, apple and hay, with hints of oak, vanilla and lemon.
Taste: Funky, barnyard, grape, white grape, apricots, lemon and hay.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: An enjoyable Gueuze. The main thing though was that I was hoping that carbonation would have been much higher than what it was.

Bruery Terreux Tart Of Darkness

My ratebeer.com rating: 4.1

Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottled on 23rd March 2016. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear cola dark brown with a just over one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, plum, raisins, moderate roastiness and oak with hints of vanilla and coffee.
Taste: Tart and sour plums, oak and an interesting and nice roastiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: They’re calling it a Sour Stout, but I think its more appropriately a Dark Sour, as although signs of a Stout are there, it’s the sourness that dominates while the roastiness compliments it. But whatever you want to call it, it is well balanced and the flavours just match each other really well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A good Wild Ale with nice taste and aromas.

The Bruery x Funky Buddha ¡Guava Libre!

Brewery: The Bruery x Funky Buddha Brewery
Country: USA
ABV: 7.5%
Style: Cream Ale
Other Notes: This collaborative brew with our Floridian friends takes a page out of both of our books – a bold, experimental beer with culinary inspiration. Specifically, a Cuban guava pastry

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Imperial Cream Ale brewed with lactose with guava and vanilla added. This sensory getaway transports you to a corner bodega with our friends at Funky Buddha in South Florida to recreate the flavors you’d find in a “pastelito de guayaba.” Championing the big, bold flavors that both of our breweries are known for, we brewed an imperial cream ale, adding lactose and vanilla to impart sweet, custard-like ribbons, and guava for filling its conceptual authenticity. It’s a collaboration that’s equal parts inspiration and admiration.

My rating: 3

My ratebeer.com rating: 3.2

Intro: A 750ml bottle, batch #430, bottled on 11th April 2017. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: Very cloudy, dark orange murkiness with a one finger off white head that had decent retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Heavy vanilla, condensed milk, caramelising sugar and guava with perhaps hints of caramel.
Taste: Sweetish, toasted malts, vanilla, sugar, milk with hints of guava and other mixed tropical fruits.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Not entirely what I expected as there was a lot less fruit and/or guava than expected, whereas the vanilla, milk, lactose were really dominant and perhaps overly so in my opinion.

Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2015 vintage, bottled on 20th May 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart and sour, raspberry, wheat, barnyard funk, oak with hints of lime.
Taste: Sour, tart, raspberry, cranberry-apple, wheat, lemon-lime and Belgian yeast with only a hint of oak and funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but not quite as much raspberry as I hoped for. I was surprised by the higher than expected ABV though, as the alcohol was well hidden.
