Brewed by:
Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck N.V.

Style: Gueuze

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

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.

Draft pour at Duckworth's in Huntersville - $3.50!!!

Pours a hazy gold with a thin layer of white head, nice lacing and well carbed. Definitely some peach in the nose - bit sweeter smelling than I expected. The flavor has the sour funk I expected, though I really wanted a bit more out of it. It's a very solid brew that I'll certainly have again.

Poured into a tulip out of a 375ml bottle.

Pours a hazy dark gold with a smallish white head with just some very splotchy lacing.

Aroma has the barnyard funk that I am expecting along with some peachy notes that are a bit different. Belgian yeasty esters along with a bit of pepper.

The flavor has the funk toned down somewhat and there is quite a bit of fruit present; at least more than other beers of the style have had. More peach with some green apple. Vinous and woody notes combine with a very sour/tart mouthfeel to make this interesting throughout. The sourness fades towards the finish with a graininess lingering.

Overall, this is a very nice beer and quite interesting. The extra fruitiness is different than other Geuzes and makes this one unique. Not my favorite but it is an enjoyable drink.
