Hazy golden hued beer with a wisp of off white head covering just a portion of the top of the beer. Sour apple and pale wheat aroma. Tart apple and pale wheat flavor with a nice light malt backbone. The finish is heavily carbonated and dry. This is a great summer warm weather thirst quencher.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. A pale straw yellow concoction full of fizzy effervescence, including a meringue-like off-white head that disappears quite quickly, leaving a fine lacing on the glass. Aroma is decidedly tart and funky, apple cider and/or rice vinegar with a subtle brown sugar undercurrent. Wonderful. Tons of acetic/tannic fruit but with a subtle sweetness as well. This gueuze wins on aroma alone but fortunately delivers a top-tier experience on the palate as well. Champagne or wine wine-like, with a moderate amount of horse blanket (not overpowering in this regard) and essentially dominated by sour fruit and tannic flavors ... Lemon, unripe pear, cranberry, white grape, green pineapple. Carbonation remains in the background, such that the sour flavors can really pop, and finishes very dry and almost woody with ample lemon and tart green apple skin. If I can say anything negative at all, its that I was looking for something in addition to the tartness ... Perhaps I was looking in the wrong place. Classic gueuze.

12.7 oz bottle; complete with cap and cork, poured into an over sized wine glass. Liquid itself doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary. Slightly darker than straw yellow in the fall. Really nice clarity (despite the bottle saying pour out unwanted sediment). Tiny white bubbles producing maybe a finger width head, a ring stays around it most of the time. Good looking beer, but probably wouldn't look twice at it.

A little funky in the smell, but not too bad. Lemon acidic sourness and maybe a little peel. Sort of similar to a white wine. So say lemon peel, grape skin, honey crisp apple rinds, something to that effect. Not overly potent, pretty pleasant.

Taste is really good, on par with the smell. More fruity tart than sour. Plenty of pith and skin from lemons (maybe some lime), white grapes and honey crisp and granny smith apples. Slightest bit of grassy funk as well.

Moutheel is really good. Easy medium body and a very light carbonation level. Nice lingering flavor. Slightest bit of slightly touching your sweet taste buds and then tart and sour in a natural earthy sort of way. Not overpowering and has a nice clean feel all the way to the finish. Really drinkable. Thank you for the Christmas present from my wife via the BBG! Thanks to both of you. Very nice beer; not exactly my style, but I'd drink it again!
