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.

12oz bottle that says that it was bottled 23 Nov 2012? I'm guessing they meant this to be the best by date? At any rate, I'm glad they attempted to date this one.

Poured a hazy orange-yellow color with one finger of off-white head. Retention is OK, but the lacing eventually falls back into the beer.

The aroma boast hints of rice vinegar, sour cherries, white grape juice, and sake.

Taste: Bubbly and carbonated up front. A pleasant sourness coats the palate immediately after. I get a bit of vinegar like taste near the middle. Sour flavor is concentrated more on the roof of the mouth. It actually finishes pretty smooth considering.

Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

A nice beer overall.

Morey's Bottom Line: I've had a couple of other Sours, but truth be told, this is my first Gueuze. It's definitely unique, and I'd like to try other within this style. This was recommended as a good starting point, and I agree.

A: Slightly murky light amber red color.
S: fruity, apple smell. hints of cranberries. subtle oak
T: Much like the smell. Apple, cranberrie, oak. Lots of subtleties that play out here.
M: Light and perfect amount of bubbles. Sour finished becomes a little much after a few sips.

Overall a great beer. So many subtle flavors I could talk about it for a good while. Goes down smooth. Very unique and impressive.

Poured from 750 into a tulip. Pours a solid orange color with a good foamy head

Very funky aromas strike right off the bat with sour apples, a bit of sherry vinegar, funk, and a good amount of blood oranges

Great medium/full feel. Very smooth with a slight bit of bite that you want from a gueuze. Backed up with excellent flavors of sour apples, sour citrus flavors, blood oranges and funky flavors

a good and complex gueuze. Really well balanced and is about everything you want from a gueuze.
