poured into tulip glass by batender at the malthouse in Madison, WI.
reviewed from notes taken 12/29/12.
Appearance: golden bodied beer with a thick cap of head. Drops quickly to a small ring around the glass.
Smell: Lactic, acidic, a touch of vinegar. Moderate funkiness. Hay/straw and wheat notes.
Taste: Lemons, wheat and green apples. moderately tart beer. Touch of vinous notes, its almost like white wine. Nice oak notes and tannins. Mild to moderate dusty and musty horseblanket. Moderate tart finish that lingers for a while.
Mouthfeel: high end of light bodied beer almost medium body. Moderate carbonation level. The carbonation is fantastic! Its both soft, delicate, and its very smooth. Crisp and dry finish. The mouthfeel is phenominal.
Overall: I am fairly new to the style of Gueuze. Had a few and I have enjoyed them. this beer is no exception. I was really excited to see this beer at the Malthouse while pass through Madison on a snowy december night.

375 ml Belgian flag bottle poured into Cantillon balloon glass. Pours hazy gold with a thin layer of white head that persists through out. The nose is loaded with character. Fresh cut grass and hay come first along with bright lemon zest that cuts through the funk. Speaking of funk, notes of earth and hay linger strongly through out with an obvious tangy ness present as well. Taste starts with huge wave of citric acid, lemon zest, and tartness. The tartness sets the table for the earthy funk. Notes of hay, oak, and cork come through towards the finish with some peppery spice notes. Super complex, different notes come to the front with each sip. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated with light body. Overall, a very enjoyable brew. Super funky with a nice dose of tartness as well.
