Poured on tap into a snifter glass at Churchkey DC.

A minimal sized collar is presented but a generous fill. Collar is a bit soapy white, but sits on a pale orange to peach colored body. Almost orb glowing, and while drinking leaves a lot of speckled lacing.

Bouquet is interesting. Slightly floral, a bit of lemon and mild funk. Nothing real acidic, just a tou ch with some herbal green sensations. Nothing too sweet, and not to sour either.

First sip is real mellow and juicy. For a tripel there's not much dense malt here, but some lemon fruitness and some of the sucrose kicks in. It's wonderfully balanced and accented with some funky juicy qualities, that go into tropical mango and peach fruit flavors and aromas. There's some slight white pepper that matches the funk on the finish as well, and there's an almost light lambic drinking feel and champagne crisp dryness to this also.

Overall, a very unique creation even for the Belgian realm, real memorable too.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750 mL corked & caged bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No date on the label. Just started seeing this around...

A: Inviting, cloudy, golden honey-colored body with an orange tint. 1 finger clean white head. Ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Lemon, citric tartness with very little acetic. Belgian yeast. Light funk, barnyard. More fruit-forward than your typical gueuze. Tropical fruit, light peach, apple, white grape.

T: Solid, lemony tartness up front with a Belgian yeast spice. Some malt sweetness breaks through. The finish is semi-dry with the tripel-esque fruit notes making their appearance known. A little bit of alcohol. A hint of hop bitterness arises in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate carbonation with moderate to light body. Flavor is well distributed.

O: Well executed mashup of two of my favorite styles. Starts like a gueuze, finishes like a tripel and tastes like delicious. Nicely presents elements of both styles in a balanced way. Each is well represented, but neither dominates. Well integrated and complementary. Really cool brew.

Vicaris Triple Gueuze

LOOK: Golden yellow, with a white head and spotty lacing. Perfect clarity, with many fine carbonated bubbles rising to the surface.

SMELL: Sour smelling beer with some grainy malt and candy sugar.

TASTE: Funky sour, fairly strong and farmhouse like. Notes of lemon rind, candi sugar hay and wheat. Some soft alcohol works well with a very dry oak. More like a Gueuze than a tripel; plenty sour,which is encouraged in anything donning that term.

FEEL: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, bone dry finish full of oaky tannins.

OVERALL: This is a quality offering. The sour is good and the flavor is long lasting. A pretty good blend of a Gueuze and a triplel.
