Bottle acquired via trade last year via Ontario. Poured at ~7C into wine glasses. Paired with cherry pie. Bottle stamped L E10KGC

Pours a yellowish hue with a fizzy head that isn't lasting, though remains as a ring for longer than expected. Aroma is delicious with cherries, tartness and citrus on the nose. Body has many of the same flavours in it, and matches to perfection with the chosen food. Acidity is light, which keeps this as a solid sour that is "entry-level" perhaps, but it has won a friend of mine as a convert.

A clear sparkling deep brass brew, a small white head with little lacing and small curtains.

Funky stable notes, earth, horse and vinegar.

Starting with a perky dextrose sweetness, then lemon, yeast, stable, very balanced.

High carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a refreshing texture, medium small body, a sour dry finish.

A very well balanced and smooth gueuze. School!

Bottled exactly 11 months ago to the day, if only i knew what hour...

hazy straw yellow body with a few fingers of loose bone white head on top.
The aroma is a clean light musty lemony thing that is nice.
The flavors are a sour and tart, there is a citric tasting acidity is just enough to make a crisp clean feel but leans more funky overall. Lemon and pear are refreshing, green apple skins.
mouthfeel is dry and clean.

I enjoyed this, got even better as the bottle went on, i should age a few and see how acidic i can get them, i like acidity. A great beer that is always on the shelf, which is great.

Poured into sample glasses

Pours pale whitish-yellow, cloudy, carbonated, medium-small head. Smell is sour, fruity, citric maybe. Smells good...but I'm not a big gueuze guy so I'm not sure what to gauge it against.

Taste is a nice expansion of the smell. Jaw-clench sour, sour dry plum flavor, just a hint of bitterness, some fruity sweetness.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, I like it. I hope this is what gueuzes are supposed to be like.

Cloudy gold with a greater than two finger foamy white head which fades quickly, and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has barnyard funk and lemons. Very musty and tart.

The taste has green apples, lemon, funky yeast, and is very tart. Finishes dry. There is a very light amount of sweetness, which is not easy to detect, but it is overpowered by the tartness, as it should be when you are drinking a well made Gueuze.

Light bodied, low carbonation, dry, and mouth puckering. Very nicely made, and refreshing.

4.03/5  rDev -1.2%

A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with a fair amount of sediment/yeast that is visible in the pour (and remains in suspension after the pour). The beer has a medium thick head (less than a quarter of a thing) that reduces to an extremely thin film covering about 80% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to light aromas of barnyard funk and light amounts of sourness. There are additionally some very light vinous notes as well.

T: Starts out with some barnyard funk and sourness but eventually some vinegar like vinous notes come out as well. There is almost a bit of a bite to the taste of this beer but it is slightly sweeter than others in the style.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very prickly on the tongue.

O: Very enjoyable and easy to drink for the style with the extra sweetness and not as intense sour/funk. Definitely a sipping beer though.

[Best served in a Flute glass]

The pour was a clear golden orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head that reduced to a thin cap which lasted throughout and had fair light spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and some light grain malts with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, pears and a mild white grape winey odor.

The taste was sour yet still slightly sweet with hints of apple and pear early on, but quickly became very sour with a slight acetic taste taking over. It also possessed notes of yeast and citrus with a mild white wine presence at the end. The flavor lasted a nice long while, with a fruity tart taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a very strong champagne like carbonation.

Overall a good tart fruity brew with a nice sweet sour ending...
