Poured from a bottle (375 ml, bottled Dec 12, 2009) into a tulip glass. Initial two fingers of foamy snow white head dissipates almost immediately to a slight collar and a thin layer of small bubble foam on the surface. Hazy golden colored beer that you can barely see through, with tons of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.
Nose is sour green apple, pear, lemon, grass, and wet hay funkiness. Well balanced sweetness and tartness aroma.
Very sour upfront, but mellows quickly into sweet and sour fruits from the nose and funk. A light sweet and sour finish, though the finish is very short.
Light highly carbonated beer sweeps the palate clean with each sip and probably contributes to the short finish.
Not as sour as some of the other gueuzes that I've tried, but better balance of flavors that may have been the brewer's goal with the blend. A nice gueuze to introduce to someone new to the style as the tartness is brief and not lingering.
