Draft pour at Duckworth's in Huntersville - $3.50!!!

Pours a hazy gold with a thin layer of white head, nice lacing and well carbed. Definitely some peach in the nose - bit sweeter smelling than I expected. The flavor has the sour funk I expected, though I really wanted a bit more out of it. It's a very solid brew that I'll certainly have again.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a tulip out of a 375ml bottle.

Pours a hazy dark gold with a smallish white head with just some very splotchy lacing.

Aroma has the barnyard funk that I am expecting along with some peachy notes that are a bit different. Belgian yeasty esters along with a bit of pepper.

The flavor has the funk toned down somewhat and there is quite a bit of fruit present; at least more than other beers of the style have had. More peach with some green apple. Vinous and woody notes combine with a very sour/tart mouthfeel to make this interesting throughout. The sourness fades towards the finish with a graininess lingering.

Overall, this is a very nice beer and quite interesting. The extra fruitiness is different than other Geuzes and makes this one unique. Not my favorite but it is an enjoyable drink.

Shared by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave! Served alongside the St. Louis Kriek.

The beer is hazy golden with a small white head. Aromas of hay, grass, barn funk, typical gueuze scents, perhaps a sprinkling of black pepper. Similar flavor, with earth tones and a mild grainy aspect. pretty tasty. Crisp with a dry finish. For a ubiquitous gueuze, this isn't bad at all.

Hazy golden straw color with a finger and a half of head that dissipates quickly. The nose has some artificial fruit aromas, like cherry kool-aid and grape kool-aid, clean pale malts, a slight vinous quality and some barnyard funk. I get wheat and bread yeast on the front of the tongue with a sharp sour attack on the way down, then a lemony finish and nice bready aftertaste. Drinkable, light, and highly carbonated.
