Bottle (2012)

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

Clear orange with a small to moderately-sized near-white head that quickly recedes. This beer doesn't have a lot of carbonation, especially given the noted style of gueuze. Leaves the glass nearly clean, though it leaves small spots of juicy stick. Only average.

The aroma is perhaps the best aspect of this beer, though it's not anywhere close as complex, enjoyable, or funky as Belgian examples of the same style. Some definite lemon and sharp citrus notes, bit sour character, and some definite funk (sweaty sock) character.

The flavor is nice, though it simply lacks depth. In one of the most complex tasting styles, this one doesn't have similar depth. That being that, what's here is delicious and certainly worth drinking. Sharp, bright, and sour lemons and perhaps some apricot, sock sweat funk, and moderate-to-high sour character. Dry finish.

Medium bodied with extremely low carbonation. Watery after less than a half hour in the glass. This beer's true failing, if it has one.

Good, and affordable, but not great.
