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.

375ml bottle into snifter. best before july 2022, enjoyed on july 30, 2014

a: a vibrant yet almost fully opaque orange. a finger of head that fades away quickly

s: smells sour and funky. hints of green apple, lemon, and yeast

t: up front is a sharp sourness with hay and hints of salt. this lingers and tapers off at around mid-to-late-palate, and then shy notes of pear, tart granny smith apples, lemon, and vinegar reveal themselves on the back end. maybe bits of wood tastes as well. excellent dry finish. the fruit flavours open up as the beer warms

m: nearly medium body, medium-high carbonation

o: sour, refreshing, and delicious

Purchased at the LCBO 375ml bottle for $4.75. Served at 5deg C in a tulip.

A- Opens ok. Pours not much head that dissipates to a film within a minute or two. Unfiltered and dark golden color

S- Outstanding!! What a refreshing change of pace. You can smell the sour LOL.

T- Sour and good.

M- Dry and very tart. Super sour. Loads of carbonation.

O- Very good. Completely different from a flavored Lambic but enjoyable. Almost wine like. Liking this style of beer. Looking forward to seeing how it ages

Food Pairing

This nice little lambic went well with... Spicy tuna sushi roll

Enjoy

Pours a nice amber yellow with a decent hit. Good carbonation. Bottle indicates brewed in 2012. Smells like a typical lambic. Taste is typical sour but surprisingly without any hint of sweetness. Nice clean refreshing beer with a sour finish. Not a lot of substance. Lots of unfiltered goodies at the bottom of the bottle.
