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."

Haven't been lucky enough to find one in NYC yet, but picked up this bottle at a shop in Bruges and brought it back to the states. Poured into a snifter.

A - A murky, cloudy tan/orange with a soapy head. Thicker than a traditional gueuze.

S - Sour, intense.

T - Sour and bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Citrusy, like grapefruit with a hint of lemon.

M - Light body with a rich carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing.

O - A very well executed twist on the lambic style. I was fortunate enough to visit Cantillon during my trip to Belgium, and personally I prefer this beer over any of theirs as this one has a bit more intensity and a much fuller carbonation. Really wish this was easier to find in the states, I'd gladly keep a bottle or two handy for a hot summer day.
