Our take on a gueuze-style ale, this intensely tart and funky beer combines three different vintages of our barrel aged sour blonde ale.

pours a light golden color with a nice head. smell is big on vinegar and tartness.... taste is reminiscent of a belgian gueuezue very very sour and tart tasting. white grapes, vinegar...no fruit flavors. lip puckeringly sour. medium bodied, mild carbonation...

overall just a great american representation of a gueueze...i thoroughly enjoyed.

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.

A - Pours a golden bodied beer, slightly hazy, with a thin effervescent eggshell head.

S - Lemon and green apple. Oak on the backend. Definitely musty with some funk.

T - Boom... Lemon sour to start off. Green apple and white grapes come through on the backend. The oak is light, but noticeable. And the funk is ever present.

M - Light bodied and light carbonation. Has a very crisp and dry finish that aides the puckering sour.

O - This is great... And probably my favorite tart/sour from The Bruery to date. One I'd reach for time & time again if I could and was in the mood.
