Poured 2011 into Rogue Goblet (only glassware available at the time)

A - Pours a slightly hazy straw/golden color. It produced a finger width of white head that faded quickly. I was surprised that it didn't liberate more head and wasn't as effervescent though.

S - Barn yard funk, earthy, goaty, with citrus fruits(lemon and grapefruit) and slightly sour (like sour apple?).

T - Nicely sour up front, followed but a little muskiness and finishes off acidic.

M- Light bodied, crisp and with nice carbonation. Easy to drink. Again, not as carbonated as I would have expected.

O - I'll admit I'm not a Gueuze expert, but I really enjoyed this. It seemed nicely balanced between sour and acidic. It was complex enough to keep things interesting. I will definitely drink this again.

355 ML bottle with an orange foil cap stamped LL01HGUCR at the top. I'm assuming that means it was bottled on 12/01/2008. Poured into a Bruery tulip.

Ap: A gentle pour produces a very thin finger of white whispy head and a dark golden/orange hazy body. Lots of tight tiny continuous bubbles and creamy lacing. 3.75

A: Lots of tart apple cider vinegar, pain thinner, white wine, rubbery cork, tangy lactic acidity, faint musk and a bit of wheat malt. 4.0

T: Starts off with green apple and apple cider acidity, rubbery funk, crushed vitamins, tart yogurt and a bit of old musty wood. Grain malt finish with a bit of barrel bitterness. 3.75

Mf: Light, airy mouthfeel with prickly carbonation and a good hit of acidity. You can feel the sting on your gums and the imminent heartburn. 3.75

Overall: A good gueuze style beer with fruity sourness up front and some nice lactic tang in the middle. However, it doesn't have the complex funk and bugs I've experienced in other examples. At about six years, Cuvee Rene is a much more cleaner and straight forward gueuze than others. Still, a shelf gueuze that delivers.
