I haven't reviewed this yet? You're kidding me.

Pretty foamy gueuze here...sunny hazed gold with a solid crown of foam that never really goes anywhere - or at least settles to a substantial cap and stays there.

Likewise, textbook gueuze aroma with some strength to it, smell-able as soon as you pop the cork. Apple orchard, wood, attic. Smells more Brett-y than sour.

The flavor components are all there - sour but not godawfully sour, that inexplicable aged cheesy quality, very dry apple, wood. I think the thing that's really stopping this from being one of the more amazing examples of the style is that it's showing somewhat overcarbonated. The flavors aren't developing on the palate to the extent they otherwise would. The carbo is cleaning things up a bit too quickly. Quenching, yes. Burpy as hell? Also yes.

Would be ultra-drinkable but for the fact that every sip is killing me with bubbles....so I'm forced to slow down.

A good gueuze that's not too far from being a great one.

Pours amber with a lightly packed head.
Nose shows horse blanket, apple, earthy Brett and elderflower.
Moderately acidic flavours, more earthy Brett, apple, pear and elderflower. Quite herbal. Incredibly drinkable.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.
