Poured into my St. Bernardus goblet.
I will start off saying this is the first time I have had this style so this will be a slightly difficult review but starting off with the highest rated Gueuze on BA isn't a bad way to get things going.
A- Color is a copper golden color. No real head to speak of but there is a nice ring of bubbles around the top of the liquid and some small bubbles working their way up from the bottom.
S- First thing I smell is more associated as a taste in my mind. From it I can certainly expect sourness to come. Definitely Belgian yeast. Some citric smells are in there. Lemon comes to mind.
T/M- Yeah, definitely a new one for my poor virgin palate. Its likes a sour patch kids minus the sugar. I actually am enjoying the flavor more then I was expecting I would. It is very sour and tart but it's fun to sip. It wakes up my taste buds and makes my mouth salivate due to the tartness. It is a nice change from the usual American IPA and stout. A few moments after each sip I want another even though it feels like it is demolishing my taste buds.
D- Well definitely enjoyed having one 375ML bottle but I don't think I would want more then that. Definitely a sipper for me. This is a good beer when I want a change from any of the mainstream, heavily consumed beers.

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.
