37.5 cL corked and caged bottle served chilled in a Deus flute.
Appearance: Clear peach twinged with pink liquid with visible streamers of carbonation. Small white cap of foam eventually faded a thick ring and small island of foam. Small specks of foam were left on the glass.
Smell: Rather pungent sour and tart aromas that made my nose hairs curl back, somewhat in horror. Lemony, musty, vinegary, and woody. Bretty funk is very apparent.
"You're actually gonna drink this?" the poison fearing lizard portion of my brain asks. "Hell yes" sez the part that knows better.
Taste: Brackish and tart. Heavy dosed with woody tannins. Lemony, vinegary, and acidic as all git out. Occasional note of metallic tang.
Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, rather effervescent. Lingering aftertastes of tannin and funk.
Drinkability: This stuff can't be good for my digestive system, but I guess that's why we have Tums. If you're looking for an authentic gueuze, this is probably one of the best ones to seek out.

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.
