Sent to me as an extra from I forget who. Poured to my Cantillon glass on November 1, 2014. Pours clear golden color with just a small bit of white bubbles on top but plenty lacing the glass down low. Really nice funky tart aroma of honey, pears, green apples, a little vinegar, some wheat malt. Reminds me a bit of a sweet jonge lambic. Flavor is funky tart vinegar that fades into sweet fruits like pears and apples, and finishes with oight lightly oaky honey sweetness. Just a bit of acidity lingering on the palate. A bit on the flat side unfortunately. Light plus body. Overall this was an interesting take on a Gueuze that doesn’t have the dusty dryness I generally expect from the style. Hurt a bit by the low carbonation but otherwise perfectly drinkable and decent sour beer.
