look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
2008 vintage, poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy, pale straw color with moderate carbonation. About 3" of white head forms on the pour, which has excellent retention and decent lacing.
Smell: Smells of sour green apples, followed by a ton of grassiness, hay, lactic sourness and barnyard funk. Quite aromatic.
Taste: In line with the smell. Light green apple notes, as well as some pear, followed by intense lactic sourness and funk. Very puckering and drying on the finish. About what one would expect from a classic gueuze such as this.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with prickly carbonation. Pretty good here. Overall, a great gueuze. Very sour, puckering and refreshing. Had this directly following a '04 Lou Pepe Gueuze, and definitely preferred this beer.
Serving type: bottle
