750mL bottle into a tulip
Bottled on: 02 MAA 2012

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a huge 4 plus fingers width of slightly off white head. Leaves a few faint patches of lacing.

S: Tart fruits and sweet fruits. White grape and apple. A little bit of funk and some spice. Banana. Faint vinegar. Very nice.

T: Lots of tart sourness, along with apple cider vinegar. Lingering belgian yeast banana on the finish. Lots of lactic acidity. Some peppery spice. Some musty funk. Again, very nice.

M/D: Crisp mouthfeel, lots of carbonation, fuller side of medium bodied. Drinkability is good. Nice mouthfeel here.

O: Overall, a very nice beer. And an affordable gueuze gets bonus points in my book. Id definitely buy this one again. Recommend.

Tasted this alongside the ordinary gueuze from the same brewery.

A - pale golden, crystal clear, head dies down fast.

S - funkiness, leather, green apples, lime,

T - Opens very soft with some veeery faint pale malt profile. As it comes a long it reveals the same complexity of flavors as in the aroma. A apple cidery flavor starts to kick in, and I get a bit worried that it's gonna take over (like in the ordinary guezue from the same brewery), but it stops just short of being too offensive. Dry and tart on the finish,

M - Puckering mouthfeel, body is lighter then the ordinary guezue - I think this one works better. High carbonation.

O - A real treat, tons of exciting flavors, really refreshing. The Cuvée is waaay better than the ordinary gueuze!

Pours a bright and clear gold color with a nice big fluffy white head.

Aromas are vinegar like, with some lemon zest, and general mustiness.

Super dry tasting, sour, and tart with a lemon flavor. Finish is crisp, with a creamy slight sweet candy like note. Definitely a beer that will make you pucker, but it's not overly sour.

Nice mouthfeel. Very full and nicely carbonated.

Very nice easy drinking sour. And my first gueuze. I dig it, and will enjoy sipping the rest of the bottle.
