4.3/5 rDev -0.9%
Bottle from Tipples. Pours a deep hazy orange color with only a small ring of fizzy white head. Aroma of sour vinegar, some minty effervescence, orange peel, apricots, cherry, green apple. This smells glorious. Flavor is big green apple, sour vinegar, some candy sugar. Effervescent but not as much carb as I expected, easy drinking, mouth puckering. Overall I like this a lot, even more so than Drie Fontenin's Oude Gueze. Nice beer.

This was a highly anticipated tasting for me, a Gueuze "coming from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon breweries..." It was enjoyed at the fine establishment called 'The Blind Tiger' in NYC. Aesthetically, this beer is right on the mark when it comes to the style, with its pale straw color, slight haze, and thin ring of white over top. After a few deep inhalations of the nose, I picked up a certain powdery cue, something like powdered sugar, or closer still, actual baby powder. Other than that, assorted bittersweet fruit esters. Flavor wise, it's much more sour than I would have guessed, almost pucker-inducing, which is just fine by me! Also a tad earthy, which blends well with the overall flavor. A bit grassy, with rinds of citrus fruits coming to mind. Overall, this has that good balance of acidity and funkiness that the best examples of this style demonstrate. Very much worth the price.
