Interesting taste.

This beer is mainly a gueuze, yet it has been flavored. It is hard to pinpoint flavors, but sour apples are present. It does not deviate much from a gueuze though. Pours a reddish beer, just like a Lou Pepe, but it does look a bit lighter as it pours. Little foam. Smell is funky. It is a light yet syrupy beer. Not very sour like other gueuzes.

From a 750 ml green bottle, corked and capped, 2007 edition. Pours of a cloudy pale honey wheat hue, thin splash of large bubbled white head.

As far as aroma goes this is one of the most appealing and enticing wild Belgian ales I have ever come across. Acidic, yet rounded rather than sharp. Layers of citrus rind, lemon, tangerine, pomelo and some very mild light spice.

Absolutely gorgeous flavour as well, I really didn't know what to expect going into this and it has blown my mind. Intense citric acidity at first that rounds out to a tame smoothness in the middle, with mildly tart finish. I'm speechless to actually do this stuff justice, it is fucking amazing. I never thought I'd enjoy a gueuze as much as this.

Light mouthfeel, low carbonation, some stickiness on the finish, and it starts to coat the palate after a while.

Highly recommended if you can get your hands on it, this is one of those beers definitey trying at least once, and even more than that if you can afford it. An incredible example of craftsmanship when it comes to blending lambics.
