4.05/5  rDev -0.7%

Poured a quick immediately dissipating head with an active carbonation, leaves some wisps of film and decent lacing. Colour is an orangey brown gold, a sort of burnt tawny.

Aroma is very defined, very boozy plums, red wine vinegar, fermented berries with a lot of fruitiness. Some dryness and the underlying sourness.

Taste is quite sour, with a raspberry/cherry note. The sourness is really strong on the palate. Quite fruity as it warms, shows some berries and plum character with a lot of tartness. Good depth and complexity, finish is tart and dry.

Mouthfeel is quite full, dominated by the bitter sourness. Quite a full body, nice mouthtingle/sting, notice the carbonation slightly.

I don't know if I will even be a huge fan of this style, sourness and sting is pretty overwhelming. However, this one has a lot of complex fruit flavour to it. Great depth, this beer is an experience for sure. Fans of Lambics should give it a try, but not sure I'll be stocking up.

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.
