12.7 oz bottle was poured into a tulip.

Appearance: A small head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. Typical for this style. It is a slightly hazy pale orange with good vision of tiny bubbles coming up through out the glass.

Smell: Sour, tart, oak, raspberry, cherry, and a little sweetness.

Taste: Got to love the tart and funk notes with slight oak, fruitiness, bitterness, and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, high carbonation, tart, pucker, chewy, and sour.

Overall: For a gueuze, this one is at the top of my list. Very traditional to the style and very enjoyable.

375 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $4.35 CDN. Served fairly cold into glassware. Another style I have no experience with and as a result I just had to try it.

Appearance - semi transparent copper color capped by just over a finger of white head. There are few bubbles present and head doesn't linger for too long, but neither does it dissipate away quickly.

Smell - sour and tart smelling but with a slightly sweet fruity undercurrent. Really hard to nail down what that is, whether is cherry or raspberry but I think it's more of a gooseberry and blackberry aroma.

Taste - quite tart and sour, but melds well with the natural fruit flavours. Hard to nail down the flavor as with the aroma, but it is tart, fruity and complex.

Mouthfeel - lively and tongue curling with the tartness, the body is also soft with a moderate finish.

Overall - a fine introductory beer for the style, and while I'd don't have the capability to determine how this stacks up with other representatives from this style, I can tell you that it was and intriguing beer that I enjoyed quite a bit and would consider purchasing again.
