I'm really excited to try a gueuze made in the US for the first time, I'm also always excited to try a Bruery beer new to me!
A-golden with an almost no head except some white around the rim. not many bubbles. from the belgian gueuzes I've had, this seems to be more or less the norm.
S-super sour scent of lemongrass and citrus. it really tingles the nose!! smells awesome.
T-comes in with a perfectly tart flavor of lemongrass and citrus. it really makes me pucker! the flavors are clear and of high quality. this sure is savory! it has a crisp matching after-taste that really sticks to the mouth. has a certain oak flavor and rawness to it as well.
M-medium to low carbonation with a sticky finish. though not typically desirable in a beer, this is common in a Belgian gueze, giving this a real feeling of authenticity.
O-if you gave me this with out telling me what it was, i would tell you that it's a fine example of gueuze from Belgium. I'm surprised an american brewery, even The Bruery was able to get it spot on. Truthfully this beer is mouth watering. I could drink this so quickly and so easily.

Bottle etched 8/27/13 - 2013 edition
Hazy, golden pour with head reducing to slight lacing. Aroma is primarily sour lemon with some funk and sweet malt. Taste is bright sour fruits (primarily lemon and apple), oak, grass and a bit of subdued funk. Quite tart and fairly acetic in a similar manner to Hannsenns oude gueuze. Finishes with a lemony zing which is very gueuze-like but there is a malty sweetness that is un-gueuze-like. Active, creamy effervescent carbonation lends a nice mouthfeel to this light-bodied beer. Overall this is a very nicely done american sour ale that has held up well with almost a year since bottling. Refreshing, tasty and very sour! Recommended.
