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.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a slightly dark-ish straw yellow, with a small half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells quite funky and barnyardy, lots of Brett and lacto, big hay, some lemon. Horsey all around.

This tastes pretty similar to the aroma. Fairly mouth-puckering, with a wet haystack flavor, and a little bit of citrus. It definitely feels gueuze-like, but it feels slightly uninspired, and uninteresting. Doesn't seem all that complex, other than a big barnyard feel. It does taste pretty good, though, just wish there was a bit more.

This is fairly light bodied, with a highly carbonated and tart mouthfeel. It's a slow sipper due to the intense sourness.

This was alright, but far from the best sour I've ever had.

Poured from draught to a small tulip glass, muddy orange, with little head or lace.

Lemon and funky aroma with light pepper.

Decent tartness and acid, some faint sweetness. Citrus, and No real finish.

Light body, no alcohol, crisp dry and highly carbonated.

While other gueuze have more everything, the freshness is enjoyable.
