Notes / Commercial Description:
St-Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition is a pure traditional gueuze aimed at connoisseurs. It has the pure taste of a true gueuze based on a blend of young and old lambics. Fruity apple aromas stand out. When tasting, the slightly sour touches, characteristic of lambic beers, make their presence felt. It is very dry in the finish.

Had this at the Hopleaf in Chicago.

Small corked and cegd bottle, it pours a hazy light golden brew with a nice off-white head that holds well.
Aroma is typical, very good if not astonishing, funky and leathery, fruity, woody and even somewhat sweet.
Light and easy to drink, it is quite tart and acidicupfront, refreshing, with a hint of sweetness to keep it from being very dry.
This was a suprisingly good gueuze, and it paired my beer mussels amazingly well.

8 oz. on tap at Toronado.

Golden with a bit of red, slight carbonation. Sour all the way through. Sour fruit nose. Good acidity up front with a bit of bite. Acidity mild, but noticeable. Tart middle and finish. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable, the balance between the tartness and fruitiness make this a very enjoyable drink.
