vintage 2010 (july)

pours a hazy golden orange. massive head just eats up the space in this tulip. slowly dissipates. lots of foam.

very vibrant. heavy on the lemon and oak, mainly oak though. slight funky backbone.

mild flavor, light flavors of lemon and apple. oak is very dominant. nothing besides the oak really stands out. would like to see more depth to the flavor.

lots of tingle from a very lively carbonation. light and easy.

decent gueuze, but in this price range i would pass for a few others.

Beer bottle (37,5 cl., vintage 2010) purchased from Le Souffleur de bières, and tasted in 2012.

Appearance : medium yellow color, with white foamy head (not persistent).
Smell : sour fruity aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : tart flavours, round but very dry, sparkling.
Drinkability : a very good beer in the style traditional Gueuze. Drunk "too young" but at cellar t°.

For the price you really can't beat this Gueze.

While I prefer Consecration and many of the RR sours this is still very good.

The pour is a real light tangerine/yellow with ample head. I've had bottles with much sediment and others bare. Not sure why, but I've noticed this a lot.

I've also had a bottle that was sour beyond recognition. This is a Gueze that should always be in the refrigerator when you are drinking without a special event.

says it's bottled August 13th 2012. Not really sure what this could mean. I guess it's best by that date?

appearance - orange with a little haze. White frothy head.

smell - earthy, funky, tart, bretty. Citrus

taste - green apple and citrus like lemon rinds dominate the flavor. A bit sweet malt in the middle balanced with some oak, not as acidic as expected and actually finishes mouth watering.

mouthfeel - thin mouthfeel with low carbonation. Could use a few extra months in the bottle as is suggested by the bottle itself.

overall - I love the apple and citrus notes. I bought this at my local liquor store and it was only $7.99. I think that this is an amazing value for this beer. It's balanced, and tart, and mouthwateringly delicious. I'm probably going to pick up a bunch more of this. Great entry level sour.

Picked up a bottle of this at Austin Liquors roughly 2 years

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear golden light amber hue atop which was a nice two finger off white head that faded to leave a big, fat almost one finger blanket!

S - Very nice citrus (lemon), apples, and some light oak.

T - Lots of green apple and bright lemon sour/tartness. A nice funky barnyard with a rather sharp funky almost metallic finish.

M - Mouthfeel is very light and bubbly. Perfect amount of carbonation. Nice sour finish.

O - Overall this is a very enjoyable and easily accessabe gueuze. Lots of really solid aspects too his gueuze. Very nice.

Clear gold with a billowy white head. Good retention.

Slightly nutty, earthy aromas, with a touch of lemon peel. Not much in the way of barnyard, more forest floor sort of earthy.

Tart, lemony, a bit of earth. Malt is present, but very very subtle. Some astringency.

Light-bodied and effervercent, as it should be.

Definitely not the greatest gueuze out there, but a good introduction to the style, and the most affordable by far.
