This is a one-trick pony; it doesn't have the layers and thought-provoking complexity of a Cantillon by any stretch. However, when you want that sour-candy pucker, this is the ticket. It's very pleasing, no funny off-notes, and genuinely sour.

Also it's a great deal around here. Underrated in my opinion - I won't say that about their other offerings.

Picked this up in Belgium. Visited their pub in Brussels and had the Witte Lambic and it was not good at all. I hope this is a lot better.

Pours a light fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace in my Hill Farmstead wine glass, some foamy lacing, very clear apple juice auburn colored beer.

Nose is not too bad, a decent blended lambic but also a sweet sugar added to it, some wild funk with a bit of lambic spontaneous bugs, generic sour fruit, little vinous like, a bit of a tart cherry juice, as well as some sweet syrup added back, a bit of a cherry syrup cough drop, some aged and some young characters so at least a decent gueuze blending.

Taste starts fairly sour, a big sour generic fruit with a light lemony sour flavor, as well as tart cherry again, a bit of a young lambic as well as aged lambics bringing a combination of some funk and some rounded barrel characters and touch of bready yeast character. There is a sweetness as well, as expected for Mort Subite, sweet syrupy flavors, a bit of a brown sugar molasses character, sweet cherry cough syrup, bit of acidic kick. Finish is very sticky sweet, syrupy like, more sour cherry syrup, a little lambic funk, more sour funk and a bit of bready yeast and more acidity.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb, bit of an acidic bite.

Overall meh, it has some decent gueuze characteristics, but that added syrup, sweetness, and lack of real nice funk and very nice lambic characters makes this a few steps down from any of the good Belgian gueuzes, as expected from what I had while at the brew pub.

Thanks to foofaa for sharing this one.

Pours darker than I expected, nice foamy white head, decent lacing. Smells and tastes much sweeter than I am used to for the style. Moderate amount of funk and a rather large amount of sourness. It is kinda flat and pretty sour, making it hard to consume more than a little bit at a time. The combo of sweet and sour just didn't work here for me. I enjoyed it for what it is but I wouldn't expect anything earth shattering here.

37.5cl, bb 17.06.2014

Appearance. Pours a rich gold colour with a finger of white head that leaves some patchy lacing.

Smell. Bruised apples, pears, some nice sweet funk and old wood. So far, so good.

Taste. Nice tart green apple, slight berry flavour ...maybe strawberry, Just a hint of light funk and a bit of wooden barrel.

Mouthfeel. Thin(ish) body, low+ carbonation.

Overall. A decent gueuze with some nice light flavour. Not on par with some of the better offerings out there but I would happily drink this often if it was inexpensive. I would prefer a little more carbonation as well.

375ml bottle, supposedly from some time in the 1970s (!), poured into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Huge thanks to Chris for sharing this ridiculously old Lambic.

A: Clear, flat, pale orange. Dark for the style, and just as flat as I expected for an ancient bottle.

S: Grainy and sweet, with caramel and oak atop vinous white wine grape. A little bit of acidity, but much more sweetness. Bizarre, but extremely enjoyable.

T: Clean, sweet + sour craziness. Caramel, lime, tangerine, and lemon. Sweet finish. Again, weird but good.

M: Flat, smooth medium body. Pleasant for what it is.

O: Thoroughly enjoyable, and not in the least bit oxidized. I doubt this was ever a really great Gueuze, but it gets respect from me for holding up so well over several decades.

Cheers!
