ComradeK (1076) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 24, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a large white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has a very strong sour funk character, with plenty of weighty, savoury oak, off-dry lime and some almost rose-like floral notes. It is powerfully sour up front, with lemon, tart apple skin and black cardamom notes. A funky, leathery flavour comes in towards the mid-palate, which gains weight and body from savoury, tannic oak. Fresh, biting sourness combines with the oak in a dry finish, which leaves an oaky, leathery aftertaste. This is simply a superb beer, even better than the standard Oude Gueuze. It is powerfully sour, yet beautifully weighted and balanced. A delightful, complex gueuze.
