4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Cloudy gold in colour with strong spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of Meyer lemon, line peel, funk, a bit of fresh cheese, and matchsticks. Flavors are of juicy lemon, minerals, wood, funk, and floral honey (although not sweet). Substantial on the palate, with the right balance of sour and tart. One of the best gueuzes I’ve tried.

Clear amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, bread, brett, pediococcus, barnyard, hint of smoky rubber notes. Light tart, sour flavour, gooseberries, lemon zest, citrus, hint of sweet esters. Finish wood, tart, lots of citrus, lovely brett. Lingering. I’m truly impressed, it’s such an utterly brilliant beer, very flavourful while still managing to feel light. Thanks for the bottle from the contest, Armand!
