Poured from a Corked and Caged 375ml bottle dated March 5 2012 into a Prairie Teku glass.
Appearance: A deep amber, cloudy, with clear wisps of yeasty sediment flowing throughout. Sizable off-white head, which dissipates moderately quickly but persists with a thin layer that isn't going anywhere any time soon.
Smell: That classic vinous gueuze smell is coming through here. Tart, fruity, funky. I'm excited to take a sip. This is clearly a top notch beer.
Taste: Funky, vaguely vinegar character to the tartness. A faint bitterness toward the end, some grainy maltiness balances this all out. The vinous fruity character I smelled is coming through nicely too. A slight grassy quality too. A good gueuze is really something.
Mouthfeel: As expected, quite carbonated. Creamy though, after the initial rush.
Overall: This is really good. Well worth the trade, I'm glad I could get some of this. I'd love to compare it to the other world class Gueuzes, I still haven't had Cantillon's for example.
Serving type: bottle
