Notes/Commercial Description:
Vicaris Triple-Gueuze is a Belgian Abbey Triple. A creamy white head billows above a honey-gold-colored beer. The nose has notes of tart vanilla and spice while a full body and long finish are perfectly balanced by the fine, dry gueuze.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip. Lot 04042014 stamped on the cork.
A: Pours a hazy lemon yellow with high carbonation producing a 2 inch white frothy head with excellent retention. Nice lacing too. Admire this one. (4.5)
S: Soft (lemon) citrus, earthy mineral funk, melon, and white pepper. Give this a little time to open up (not even warm much) and notes of honey and a hint of vanilla emerge. (4.25)
T: Wow...love the blend. Orange and lemon citrus, white pepper, honey, hint of salt, and a note of dry minerals. (4.25)
M: Soft, sweet, and creamy up front (tripel)...turns toward more tart (gueuze) in the mid-palate and finish. Medium body. Dry finish with nice lingering on the palate. (4.25)
D: An interesting idea with excellent results. This one could have gone off the rails, but it ends up walking the tight-rope with success. Seek it out! (4.25)

I went into this beer with restrained but dignified hesitance, I will freely admit that, but, with an open heart and eager mouth, no doubt. While it is not a bad blended beer - yes, you get the sweetish bubblegum-y, peach-laden trip and tangy, sourish gueze- it makes me think of a BBQ pulled pork pizza, frankly. I love me some barbecue and the ChainGangGuy would be hard-pressed indeed to willingly turn down a hot, cheesy pie, but together? No. No, thank you. I would much prefer these two beers components separated (but equal).

been waiting awhile to try this, maybe the price tag has kept me from it. also not sure what to expect from the style, an uncommon blend to say the least. pale blonde beer, honey hued, heady ad clean, white dressed lace, looking real good. the nose on it is more tripel than lambic, with a rounder body for its looks, a vein of sweetness running through it, and the classic belgian fruity ester aroma, albeit rather soft and delicate. the lambic part is real subtle, just a hint of that oaky lactic funk, less sourness or real old world wheat malt base, elegant. the flavor is as danced as the nose, with much more of the lambic in the finish, the acidity cuts the sweetness of the tripel perfectly, and a harmonious balance is found about mid palate. carbonation is awesomely bright, refreshing as they come, and the lack of super heavy belgian yeast in here makes it a little more tidy to drink. also, the lack of real strong tripel norm alcohol content makes this a bit more drinkable too, too easy in fact. as a sour or wild ale, this leave a little to be desired on a bacterial level, but as a beer, especially as a unique one, its wholly satisfying. i wish it cost about 5 bucks less a bottle, but i certainly appreciate the process and the blending here. expertly done.
