First Gueuze ~ Bottled Dec. 2009
Appearance- Pours a clear gold with a two finger white head, quickly dissipating. Active carbonation.
Smell- This is very aromatic. Earthy, tart, green apple.
Taste- WOW. First sip was absolutely mouth puckering, but this is incredible. Very tart, sour green apple with an earthy grassy funk in the middle. Finishes fairly dry.
Mouthfeel- light and crisp, from what I understand is the ideal for this style
Overall- For my first gueuze this went very well, maybe to well! First of all these beers are expensive and I think I am in love, second this went down incredibly quick, I need to teach myself to slow down and really enjoy this!

A big thanks to joshwith for sending this one over in a trade!
A: Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with 1.5 fingers width of white head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves effectively zero lacing.
S: Lots of tart lactic acidiy, and an equally big lemon-lime citrus. I also get oak, vanilla, fruity esters, some floral notes, and subtle melting plastic like funk. Awesome.
T: Funkier than the nose, with that burnt plastic like character. Next I get a fair amount of citrus rind and lactic tartness. Pretty sour, but not to the degree of some Gueuzes or other Cantillon's Ive had. I also get a pretty big degree of floral notes, oak, some sweet citrus notes, and some bitterness. Tartness builtd throughout the drink. Theres a very nice flavor of oak and fruity esters that linger forever in the aftertaste. Great complexity, and really tasty beer.
M/D: Medium body, carbonation is moderate but lower than most examples Ive had of the style, fairly drying on the finish, and drinkability is very good.
O: One of the standards of the style, truly a classic.
