Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: "Cuvee is an ale of mixed origin like many Belgian breweries used to make. The production process is nearly the same as for the Kriek, the difference being that no cherries are added. It's a naturally acidified ale in which we try to reach the perfect balance between sweet and sour. This amber-coloured ale contains 7% vol. Alc. and can age really nice."

Poored a rich light amber with almost no head. The aroma was tart and of sour apple and had slightly floral notes. Excellent level of carbonation for the style. Flavor was awesome. Very smooth sourness with a hint of oak. Could have had the whole 750ml myself, but that would be selfish. Wish I had more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Wrapped in paper bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color forming a medium light yellow bubble and fizzy head. Medium to low retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains for very long on the top

S: Great fruitiness with notes of white grapes mainly. Sour and vinegar, nevertheless, smooth and pleasant. Notes of leather and oak. Metallic and earthy. Flowery hops. Great balance

T: Very fruity upfront. Strong notes of white grapes, pale malts, vinegar, oak and leather. Mild tartness. A bit earthy and metallic. Perfect taste

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Lambic and woody aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. One of the best sour belgian ales I've ever had. Extremely balanced and smooth. 7% ABV that cannot be noticed. Masterpiece
