A - 4.25 - Nice orange amber color that's slightly hazy with a thick white 1/2 finger head that leaves lumpy lacing.
S - 4.25 - sour grapes, lemon juice, lime juice, fresh sour berries, sour patch kids, it's pretty awesomely sour.
T - 4.25 - sour grapes, lemons, limes, bready malt in the background.
M - 4.25 - light-medium. Alc covered. Aftertaste is bready malts and tart.
O - 4.25 - Great beer. I think I like the framboise best.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: Corked and capped bottle with tin foil covering. Poured completely from the bottle into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Pale orange in color. Lots of carbonation flowing toward the top of the glass. Almost no head after the pour. A little white lacing settles near the edge of the glass.

Aroma: Tart lemon and some barnyard funk. The funk and some pale malt are rather assetive here.

Taste: The lemon notes really stand out here. The sour notes are rather straightforward but really work well with the funkiness of the yeast. Nicely balanced. Clean aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Aggresively carbonated with a medium mouthfeel.

Drinkability: The flavors are intense and very upfront, but they are nicely balanced and work well together. The ABV is manageable and the mouthfeel works nicely.

Overall, a nice take on this style. Balanced with good sours notes. Nothing too complex but definitely something worth trying.

Bottled in 2009, opened in 2012.

Appearance – Pours a cloudy golden orange color, with a big head and light lacing.

Smell – Lemon, pine, white wine, and a hint of honey.

Taste – Taste is sour, but it’s nicer than most sours because the sour doesn’t linger in the aftertaste. Grapes, hay, and a touch of vinegar.

Mouthfeel – Sour, crisp, and finishes very dry. Very little carbonation although there is a sour tingle to it. A pleasing aftertaste for a gueuze.

Drinkability – One of the better gueuzes I’ve had.

At homebrewing meeting, part of style of the month.

A - Poured a golden-yeloow, with 1 fingered white head, which disappeared upon impact. What lacing?

S - Honey, caramel, sour brett, with notes of citrus and light alcohol.

T - Lots of sour bret, some caramel, citrus and slight bit of honey. No alcohol this time around.

M - Definitely malt dominated, which left notes of sweet and sour mixed. Very intriguing.

D - Definitely good, would like to up my samplings and spelling of the gueuze.

Big thanks to DrJay for hooking me up with this beauty for BC2! From a 750 ml, foiled, capped and corked.

Pours a slightly hazy golden, huge soapy white head forms, big bubbles, quickly settles down to a decent layer, leaves some sticky lace on its way down. Smell is insane, very fresh and funky, sharp spice bite, sour fruits, acidity, citrus, apples, nice. Taste is sour apples, citrus, caramel, funk, hay, citric acidity in the finish, nice and sour. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low carbonation, very smooth. Nice balance, very drinkable Gueuze with enough complexity to keep people happy, and not too intense to keep people away. Thanks a lot Jay!
