An orange, clear beer with a small head. Some light carbonation visible.

Smell is mostly lactic acid with fruity notes. The smell reminds of peach and grapefruit. There is some wood present.

Taste is quite tart at first, with the sour being mostly lactic acid and some minor aetic acid tones. After 2 sips the beer is tart but never goes overboard on the sour. No aggresive tartness. This is one of the greatest benefits of this beer, it is tart but never mouth puckering. The beer nicely balances the tartness with enough body. There are nice fruity, earthy flavors which are backed up by a subtle wood taste. The beer is quite drinkable and for me a very rounded gueuze.

A-Light amber with an inch and a half of bubbly white head that fades quickly, leaving minimal soapy lacing.

S-Musty old basement, hay, damp leaves, fruit acidity, heartburn.

T/M-Compared to other gueuzes I've had, this one isn't particularly tart. It has a mild, pleasant maltiness, with notes of hay and damp wood. Like an old barn after a rainstorm. The acidity hits mid-palate and fades quickly. A very reserved take on the style. The finish is thin and earthy. Moderate to low carbonation.

D-One of the most accessible gueuzes I've had. A less extreme version of the style that doesn't sacrifice quality.
