On-tap into a tulip.

Appearance
Amber with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Lemon juice, strawberry and lactic acid.

Taste
Mild lactic sourness followed with lemon juice and hints of strawberry. Has a good bit of candy sugar sweetness with some bready malts and caramelized grains.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, dry and lightly tart.

Overall
Quite a bit of sweetness for a Gueuze. Has only a mild sourness. Still pretty enjoyable and recommended for those trying to get into Sours.

25cl bottle.
Pours reddish amber beer with off-white very big head.
Nice aroma: fruity and tart with tones of hay and horse. Sweet, moderately tart with stockyard characteristics and fruit tones. By far, no hops at all. Light, not very fizzy and well-balanced beer.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a finger of fluffy off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the pour.

Smell: Sweet with a slight vinegar note. No real tartness here, just a slight sour note.

Taste: Really sweet, kind of like a sweet Faro. No real tart notes and the vinegar is extremely mild. The finish is sweet with a touch of acid.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a slightly dry finish. The carbonation goes away way too quickly.

Overall: This beer isn't terrible overall, but it's an awful gueuze. I'm never going to have it again.
