Thanks for this bottle Deuane!

375ml bottle C&C bottle.

poured into SP tulip.

review 885.

Appearance: tawny or copper colored body with a thick cap of white head that drops down to a thin ring. Lots of yeast floaties.

Smell: mild acetic sour with a touch of brine. moderate funk that is of wet rotten hay and horsey. smells bright and zesty. lemon and lemon zest. vinous white grapes. Really nice aroma from this beer.

Taste: mild sourness and moderate funk just like the nose suggests. Meyer lemons, green apple skins, and vinous white grapes. A general fruitiness and earthy from the brett. Lots of deep oak notes. Funk is full of complexity; sweaty gym socks, wet hay, barnyard and horsey. A nice mineral flavor on the after taste of this beer. The beer actually finishes fairly clean with a hint of lingering tart lemons and light brine.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low carbonation level. This beer comes off slightly watery and minimal dryness, but enough that you know it has that nice dry quality of most gueuze. I would say that it less than semidry finish.

Overall: This is a nice and mild gueuze with plenty of complexity. I would put this into the same caliber as a 3F gueuze which is my favorite standard gueuze. I would say that I like this slightly more than cantillion classic because the funk profile of Girardin Gueuze is much better suited to my tastes; it is much more well rounded and balanced than Cantillion classic gueuze.

Bottle poured at Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours light yellowish gold with a small rim of white head on top. Aroma of candi sugar and mint leaves, dry, dusty, light citrus. Flavor is funky like my gym socks. Whoah. Some lemon notes, dry oakiness, and some vanilla as well here. More chewy body than other gueuzes in the class that I've had, and low plus carbonation. Nice brew overall, and a bit of a change-up from the LP Gueuze earlier in the night. Recommended.
