On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:

Bruery's version of a gueuze starts off with a light golden orange color and topped with a little head which goes away quickly. The aroma is on the mark, which I wasn't expecting. The Bruery usually adds a twist to a traditional style, however this is a straightforward gueuze and it gets right down to business. A faint note of fruit, a stronger note of pleasant tartness, vague citrus, mild vinegar, all coming together very well.

This is a refresher as much as a great flavored beer. The eye is centered on the tartness, which is downright enjoyable. Accents of lemon add to the fun of Rueuze. There's a vague rusticness. My saliva started to thicken as I drank more and more, which is one of the most reliable indicators I have to tell whether I have a winner of a sour ale. I think we do.

Not an authentic gueuze, but whatever it is, it's outstanding ale that I will be doing again.
