Lou Pepe Gueuze. Bottled in 2009. Lot 13/09. Into Duvel glass on Feb 25, 2012.

Appearance: 3.5
Hazy honey yellow body with a thin white head that immediately fades to a thin rim around the edge of the glass.

Smell: 3.5
A tart, slight funk nose with notes of lemon, faint candy sugar, and soft bready malt. Subtle, but pleasant. No vingearness is detected.

Taste: 4
Initial moderate sharp sourness, with notes of lemon. Then sweeter/ bready aspects of the malt come through to contrast the sour elements. Also get faint notes of hops. Finishes with a lingering sourness, with hints of tart candy and lemon. Overall, very crisp profile that softens and sweetens as the beer warms. The flavours are simple, but there is good balance, esp with the malt.

Mouthfeel: 4.5
Soft mild carbonation. Mild to moderate thickness. Moderate sourness. A good balance overall in sweet versus sour, and quite appropriate, with just the right amount of pucker to be sour and refreshing, but not too overwhelming. The lingering sourness on the palate makes you want to go back for more.

Overall: 4
A well balance, refined beer with a nice flavour profile, with prominent sourness and great malt notes. Easy drinking.
Recommend.

4.4/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Light amber in color with a bit of haziness. A minuscule layer of off white foam covers the majority of the top of the beer. Aroma of pineapple and green apples is very compelling. The body is moderately carbonated,crisp,and dry. The front of the palate is sharp with a champagne like taste that quickly tuns to pineapple and green apple with a quick dry finish. Very refreshing.
