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.

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.

375ml bottle poured into Goose Island stemmed glass

Appearance: Pours a dark golden orange with 1+ finger of a white head that settles to a medium cap and collar. Body is lightly hazy with moderate visible carbonation.

Smell: Funk, green apple, musty,

Taste: Lemon, barnyard funk, pear, just a hint of oak.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high lively carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: Pretty nice gueuze. It doesn't measure up to Cantillon, 3F and some others, but considering the low price point (I think I got this for $3.99 per bottle) this is a great budget gueuze.
