Thanks to my buddy Kevin for grabbing this for me while he was at the brewery! Pours into my glass a beautiful golden peach with a fast moving bubbly head that quickly subsides. Great clarity with lots of active carbonation. Aromas start out with a good deal of funk coupled with fruit tones. Cherry and vinous notes. Floral accents meld into a mellow woodiness as well. Mild vinegar works in. Nice!
First sip brings tart fruit upfront with notes of cherry and apple. Malt dances underneath with woody oak tones and a touch of vinegar. Good balance between sour, acidity and sweetness. Dry white wine moves in as it flows down. Lingering funk on the finish that leaves you coming back for more!
Mouthfeel is light and smooth with lots of fast moving carbonation...kinda champagne-esque. Pretty easy to drink as it is not overly sour or acidic. Cheers to New Glarus for taking the chance on brewing a Gueuze!! Glad to have the opportunity to try it and hope to see something like this from them again soon.

500 ml bottle served in a New Glarus flute. Bottled 8/6/10. Thanks to sweemzander for the share!
A: Pours a clear yellowish color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace.
S: Fruity and sweet with a slightly tart lemony note. Grassy, wet oak and a hint of lemon peel.
T: Lots going on in the taste. Tart apple, lemon spritz, musty basement and grass. Sweet vanilla with some pale malts and a little oak. Sour lemon notes as well.
M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation. Sour and sweet finish.
O: Really good. Definitely enjoyed this one. Easy drinking with a nice complex taste.
