look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
375ml C&C bottle.
poured into tulip glass.
bottled on date of March 5, 2012.
moderate pop when the cork is removed from the bottle.
Appearance: Glowing golden bodied beer with huge almost 3 fingers of head that drops quickly to a thin cap.
Smell: Sweaty, dusty, musty, yeasty, funky smelling beer. Touch of vinegar and lemon / citrus tartness.
Taste: very lemony and sour with a touch of bright orangish citrus notes and wheat notes. Hint of musty and sweaty funk. Oaky and earthy. Little bit of yeasty notes in there for good measure too. Really pleasant Gueuze!
Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean, bright, acidic, tart, refreshing. Semi-dry finish. Very lively carbonation that isnt to prickly or ticklish; its just well done.
Overall: Probably my favorite gueuze that I have tried recently. Havent drank too many beers from this style, but I have been drinking my fair share of this beer style lately and this beer is the most memorable so far! I am becoming more of a fan of this style with every beer that I try.

Poured into a Bruery tulip. Bottled on 12/05/2012.
A: Produces a huge rocky white head. Thin and sudsy with a pale gold body. Very thing lacing but a good thick cap of head hangs about.
S: Lots of bright citrus fruit up front, white wine and a juicy lactic tang in the middle. Toasted oak with a musty, dirty brett hanging around.
T: An acidic, citric sourness with lots of white whine tartness leading into some apple vinegar and stinky cheese. Rounded out with oak barrel and lots of old wood and musty hay. Lingering acidity with a dough maltyness.
Mf: Crisp, drying and effervescent. Great drinkability. Despite the sharp flavors you keep going back for more.
O: One of the better geuze I've had. Lots of those really bizarre funky and sour flavors that only come from a lambic. Very easy drinking and enjoyable. Worth the cost.
