Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a small white head. In the aroma, a sour fruitiness, somewhat like white grape. In the taste, small tartness and a small fruitiness, and yeasty too. A small sour bite in the mouthfeel and a dry fruitiness in the aftertaste. Nice sourness and fruity presence, very nice.

12oz bottle that says that it was bottled 23 Nov 2012? I'm guessing they meant this to be the best by date? At any rate, I'm glad they attempted to date this one.

Poured a hazy orange-yellow color with one finger of off-white head. Retention is OK, but the lacing eventually falls back into the beer.

The aroma boast hints of rice vinegar, sour cherries, white grape juice, and sake.

Taste: Bubbly and carbonated up front. A pleasant sourness coats the palate immediately after. I get a bit of vinegar like taste near the middle. Sour flavor is concentrated more on the roof of the mouth. It actually finishes pretty smooth considering.

Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

A nice beer overall.

Morey's Bottom Line: I've had a couple of other Sours, but truth be told, this is my first Gueuze. It's definitely unique, and I'd like to try other within this style. This was recommended as a good starting point, and I agree.

A - It is smooth and cloudy looking in my beer glass. There is small signs of carbonation (bubbles are hard to see unless there aren't many). It has a white head on a foggy orange body that receeds quickly with no retention.

S - It has an applelish type smell and again with the Lambics, it seems I can pick up that cork smell in the beer along with some kind of citrus.

T - I was expecing that apple taste from the apple smell. It has an off-taste to it somewhat difficult to describe... seems as if it's an apple and an orange peel. Leaves someone a strong "earthy" taste in your mouth, but with lots of salivating.

M - Feels like a medium weight sitting on your tongue. Starts off kind of bland and builds up to a sharp tart.

D - I was caught off guard by the smell and appearance. Out of the Lambic family, I'd personally rank this one the lowest out of the other's I've tried. This is not a beer you would bring to a party and slam. This is more of the sipping kind you would bring out for a special occasion.

the appearance is light orange, straw yellow color. smells sour and like grapes. taste is tart and sweet...tastes like grapes and sour fruit... . the carbonation is lively and it cuts across your tongue. pretty thin body, appropriate for the style. pretty high drinkability, i like the beer. good stuff.

Pours pale orange with a slight haziness. Large foamy head, champagne like that dissipates into a thin head. Lots of lacing. Smells of sour fruits, effervescence. Taste follows with an interesting blend of sour fruits, basically tastes a bit like rotting citrus without the stench of rot :). I haven't had a gueuze yet, but I assume this is what they are supposed to taste like. Gives an ancient type of feel, yet is elegant as well.
