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.
