A: Bloom fades quickly. Slight lacing. Hazy, grapefruit-like orange/ruby hue. No perceived yeast sediment.

S: Spicy, fruity, yeasty, dry bouquet. Definite notes of lemon, grape, and grapefruit.

T: Delightfully complex flavor profile, with notes of lemon and grapefruit. Tart, very dry citrus flavors combine with a pleasant slight sweetness and a very nice bitterness at the end.

9/20/14....Zwanze Day at Bier Station in KC. Had two big glasses of this and several others. Absolutely fantastic on tap!

M: Slight carbonation. Very smooth. Medium bodied.

O: Probably the best example of this style I have ever had. Worth the splurge.

Belgian flag bottle poured into a LA Teku.

A: Clear golden copper with a white one-finger head that recedes to a small ring around the rim of the glass. Not quite as effervescent as I have come to expect from a gueuze.

S: Tart peach, white wine grapes, and lemon zest initially. A touch of bready wheat and funk close things out.

T: Tart granny smith apple and dry white wine upfront. Sweet peach mid palate is quickly swept away by tart lemon juice. Slight minerality in the finish.

M: Medium bodied and bone dry. Carbonation was much lower than I expected. Flavors linger on the palate reminiscent of a very dry white wine.

O: My only negative is the low level of carbonation and that may just be a variation in the bottle I had. Otherwise this is an absolutely fantastic gueuze that I can't wait to try again.

Poured from 375 ml into a tulip glass

A- a hazy gold with very little head. Head disappears completely.

S- so much funk! Has a peachy, apricot smell followed by more funk. There is a sort of woody smell that adds to its funkiness.

T- follows the nose very well. Sweet peaches and apricots. Definitely some tropical fruit in there. The funkiness is a little harsh as there is a really strong undertone that sits in after the fruit dissipates. Pretty sour but not as sour as I expected. There is a pretty apparent bitterness hidden under the funky sour.

M- medium bodied and sour. Cheeks pucker but not anything too intense.

O- not the best gueuze I've had. But definitely a good one. If the bitterness wasn't there it would be way better.
