duck duck geuze (sorry, couldnt resist)

@ 12.99 for a bottle this aint cheap fizz, nice pop of the cork, immediately hit with that belgian yeasty/bready/honey thing... but I am getting ahead of myself..

this bottle has no bottled date but I trust my beer guy and he told me it is a fresh case right from belgium.

appearance:
straw lemonade suspension, one full finger of head dissipating, no carbonation bubbles seen in the murk, the color, although murky looking, is incredibly consistent glass to glass, knowing all that goes into this style that amazes me.

nose:
the standard farm belgian nose, like dough witha touch of honey or even summer flowers and behind it lies a flow of lemon tartness.. makes the mouth water, I close my eyes and imagine a fruit hybrid made from pears, apples and lemons, where you get the sweetness of pear apple on a bite then the finish is the tart refreshment of lemon sorbet.. wonderfully balanced nose.

taste:
the lemony flavor is up front (not as heavy duty as cantillon's other lambics). the medium body almost is hidden because of the tart refreshing finish. the carbonation is just enough to keep this afloat in the mouth, like the nose, this is balanced as well. I also detect a little salinity in the finish matching the tart ness, which gives way to subtle apple/pear tones.

drinkability?
well, if you like geuze dial this one up, this is a very drinkable brew, there are no distractions of too much fruit etc, you really get the raw lemon feel of the style. for me this is nearly as good as it gets.. awesome brew.

bottle date Feb. 1, 2013
poured into two snifters
thanks to Kristine for the gift for helping her out

vinuous horseblanket funk smell.
slight head that dssipates to a thin film.
low carbonation.
straw gold appearance.
does not taste nearly like some of the best Gueuze I have had.
mouthfeel is light and does not get very tart.
overall taste is very bland.

would not buy again. do not reccomend.
