look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an amber color with eggshell color head with decent lacing and retention. I would have expected to be hazier since it's a gueuze.

S: It's been a while since I had a gueuze. But this smell very acid with a good amount of funk but nothing much else. I expected green apples and stuff, but I get more wine vinegar and funk.

T: Definitely has a vinous character. Reminds me in a strange way of Flanders sour beers. This is decent though. You get a good amount of acidity, but not too much with a nice underlying sweetness. Maybe a bit too sweet for the style but this is very manageable. Some funk, but not as much as the smell.

M: Medium feel, surprisingly. And way not fluffy enough for the style.

O: This is a decent gueuze. It's nothing to write songs about, but it does the job quite well.

Drank this and the Cuvée René at the same time and compared.

A - Pale, with a touch of copper. Crystal clear. Some foam, but it does down fast.

S - Apple cider, some sort of sour/sugary apple candy, slight funk in the background.

T - Is like the smell dominated by the cider flavor, tart and pretty damn sweet.

M - High carbonation, although I swirled the glass so much it's beginning to disappear now. Medium body, puckering.

O - An OK gueuze, but for me it has two main faults: way too sweet and way too one dimensional. Would get the Cuvée instead of this every time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Full of fine sediment. Deep golden body and not much of a head, which is white.

S: Sherry and cider.

T: Cider mostly, then some sherry. Has a sort of toasty, oaky quality, like that of tequila. The vinegar is not so strong. Sherbet in the aftertaste. Not overly sour or dry but quite acidic.

M: Soft but lively effervescence. Slightly sticky but pretty light.

O: Enjoyed it more that any other lambic I've had to date.
