From 750 mL bottle to snifter

As much an American Wild Ale (otherwise known as a 'sour') as a Gueuze, Rueuze emits bands of sour wafts immediately upon popping the cap, which shouldn't be surprising given this is a Bruery beer. An attractive apricot-yellow in color, the brew forms a frothy, 1-inch head on a gentle pour, quickly dissipating. Along with the sour aspects, the nose carries a distinct banana note, along with pepper and grassy notes. Crackery and tart, sour and sweet unripe fruit notes pop up at the front of the palate, with oaky, peppery and astringent aspects at the close. Instead of funk, there's a hint of a banana-like ester at the finish (were there some Bavarian yeast strains in this?). And with a light, effervescent body, the layered tart fruit notes make for a refreshing experience.

Maybe not traditional in style, and not as complex nor funky as expected, Rueuze is yet a tasty beverage in and of itself.
