750 ml bottle:

Pours hazy gold with a fluffy head that slowly descends to a thin cover.

The smell is of candy sugar, tartness, grain, some vinuous fruitiness.

The taste is of sweettart candy - nicely balanced. Some mustiness and vinuous fruitiness. Long, very dry finish. Simple, but tasty.

The body is light to medium, smooth with a nice texture. Very drying.

This is a tasty, drinkable classic/traditional gueuze that is tart/sour but with a nice rounding sweetness.

750mL bottle into a tulip
Bottled on: 02 MAA 2012

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a huge 4 plus fingers width of slightly off white head. Leaves a few faint patches of lacing.

S: Tart fruits and sweet fruits. White grape and apple. A little bit of funk and some spice. Banana. Faint vinegar. Very nice.

T: Lots of tart sourness, along with apple cider vinegar. Lingering belgian yeast banana on the finish. Lots of lactic acidity. Some peppery spice. Some musty funk. Again, very nice.

M/D: Crisp mouthfeel, lots of carbonation, fuller side of medium bodied. Drinkability is good. Nice mouthfeel here.

O: Overall, a very nice beer. And an affordable gueuze gets bonus points in my book. Id definitely buy this one again. Recommend.
