Duvel Tulip

A: Golden honey with orange hues. Huge 4 finger fluffy off white head. Tons of carbonation from etched glass. Quite a bit of sticky lacing.

S: Instantly reminds me of Duvel, then come the Sour green apples, pear, lactic acid lemons, bread like yeast qualities. Also some funkiness.

T: Starts mildly sour, huge tart granny smith apple lactic acid lemons again some pear. Funkiness is perfect for me, its there but not crazy overpowering.

M: Super carbonated, starts wet, finishes fairly dry. Very refreshing.

O: This was my first gueuze and I am upset I haven't tried the style sooner. Super refreshing, tart and the perfect amount of funkiness for me. Outstanding.

Poured a 355 mL bottle, dated 15 Nov 2007, into a Tulip.

A: Poured a massive 1.5 fingered creamy head, in a tulip this appears huge. The color is a glorious Tawny. The carbonation is rising nicely in the glass and it seems as if the head is hardly going anywhere. This head appears as it's staying for the long haul and this head does.

S: This smell is definitely something that is memorable. The smell of this is simply a vinegar-like grass. This is definitely the first time I have picked up this smell on a beer, but this is my very first Gueuze.

T: At the very beginning of this swallow a very sharp sweetness comes and goes. This becomes really sour. The lining that this leaves in the mouth is oddly really great. As it warms it feels as if this becomes more tart rather the sour I first tasted.

M: This is a nice creamy, crisp, beast that it a delight to take in. The carbonation feels aggressive at first, but medium and the body is also medium.

O: I was promised this would taste like multiple aged Lambics and I can't say that they lied. I could picture myself casually drinking a Lambic, but this is something I could honestly say I was not prepared for.
