This Gueuze poured like a double IPA in the humid sunshine of Two Brother's Hop Juice Release Party: tart and astringent, it was mellowed by cask conditioning. It even had a little head on it, which seems to elude many farmhouse ales and sours. I haven't had many gueuzes (gueuzii? goeose?), partially on account of the overwhelming sourness of the style, but the cask really mellowed the harshness and generous malt made it quite drinkable for an extremely extreme beer. I would swear there was apple cider in it but was told "no way!" Reminiscent of Unibroue's Ephemere, only that's half cider! Vinegar: no dill pickle, and reminiscent of Festina Pesche but with more body. I'd love a Brother Daryl to compare it to, and would love both Brother and Other Brother together side-by-side for direct comparison. Fabulous addition to the Two Brothers festival: great afternoon addition to the lineup. I hope Allagash considers a limited release bottling, or at least casks another for next year's festival. (1,003 characters)
