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.

Aroma: Tart, sweet.

Appearance: Hazy amber, not much head.

Flavor: Tart and sour up front, once sourness passes over palate get a nice peach/plum flavor, almost like a sour plum wine.

Mouthfeel: Medium, a little thick for a lambic, not as dry as a lambic should be.

Overall: Pretty good beer, not overly sour has a good fruity tart mix going on. I prefer a dryer less fruity gueuze than what this offers. a little too much like a sour plum wine for me.

375ml bottle dated 11/13/12 in wine glass

Murky golden color with head reducing to ring of clumpy lacing. Light floral, fruity and bready malt aromas with some sourness. Taste is some bright fruit with moderate sourness. Some bready malt (oxidation?) which lingers unpleasantly on the aftertaste. Relatively thin and light mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Not very complex but refreshing and drinkable despite the aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not a great gueuze.
