4.38/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
This beer pours a hazy golden straw color with little head and no retention. The carbonation is mild. The smell is tart Granny smith apples, dank basement musk and bits of white wine, pepper and cider. Less tartness than the Oude Gueuze I sampled last night.

The flavor is crisp and very tart apples with a dry finish. Ethers are slightly present as well as dry vinegary aftertaste. Over all the mouth feel is much less busy than the Oude and this comes across as a more focused and easier drinking gueuze than the Oude. Actually this is MUCH easier to drink than the Oude and I find the overall effect of this beer more inviting. I would use this to entice wine fans over to the beer side of things. Overall a great and tasty beer, and a wonderful (introduction to as well) gueuze.

4.1/5 rDev -8.5%

375ml Bottle part of a private order
Appearance - Gold colour with a smaller size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Citric, funk, apples, bread/grains
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, citric acid, and breads/grains. There is also some apples anda bit of a medicinal flavour.
Overall - Sour and funky like other gueuzes I've had, but this one has some nuances and complexities. Each sip seems to reveal different flavours. Not mind blowing, but one of the best withing the style that I've had.
