look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice. Bottled on 8/18/12. Review from notes on 12/27/12. Drank in the room aboard the Carnival Dream over Christmas break.
Appearance: Pours an opaque orange/gold color with a 2 finger frothy eggshell white head. Decent lacing.
Smell: Tart fruit, Belgian yeast, barnyard funk and a hint of sweetness.
Taste: Very tart fruit and grape hulls up front followed by funky barnyard notes in the middle before ending with a sour, bitter finish. Aftertaste is bitter and funky.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of prickly carbonation. The sourness is puckering and coats the mouth.
Drinkability: Decent drinkability. Not one to try and polish off by yourself in a single sitting. Would be better shared.
Overall: Good beer overall. I think this is my first gueuze. While it's far from my favorite style, I can say I appreciate what Lindemans has done here. I wouldn't mind revisiting this one at some point in the future.
Serving type: bottle
