Lost Abbey tulip

A: Pours a typical Gueuze look: hazy, light orange color. Lots of carbonation. Three fingers of bright white head. Tiny bubbles up the bottom of glass.

S: Smelled it as soon as I popped it. Funky. Digging in there I do get a touch of sweetness, as I have heard. Green apple. White grape the normal stuff.

T: I was expecting more tartness on the tip of the tongue. It's there, just not that much. You do get that prickly carbonation. Definitely some fake green apple character. Sweetener added? It is dry, but not bone dry as you see with others.

M: Light bodied with big carbonation.

O: It's good, maybe B+ to A-. I just think that in this category there are much better options out there.

375ml bottle into Cantillon gueuze glass. It’s hard to read but I think this was bottled in 2008.

A: Pours a fizzy burnt golden with a thin white head that quickly faded into a nearly invisible film.
S: Light notes of dry funk, a twinge of citrus, and good dose of gueuzey earth and straw. I get light notes of golden fruits, peppery spices, and Belgian sugar as well.
T: Hints of peach come through alongside notes of dry funk, citrus, earthy must and straw. Peppery yeast and spices bring up the finish, and the aftertaste is sweet with hints of lemon zest.
M: Medium body, drying mouthfeel, light sweetness, with very fizzy and bubbly carbonation. Bubbles feel big and prickly on my palate.
O: A bit plain in flavor and too spritzy for my liking, but this was an easy drinking gueuze with a moderate acidic bite. Worth checking out if you are getting into the style, but it doesn’t compare to the other great gueuzeries of Belgium.

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.
