4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at North Bar. Rating #300! Chess to Erin and Will for helping me decide. Pours a orange gold, small head. Aroma is classic gueuze - grapefruit, horse blanket, straw, but with a lovely redcurrant/raspberry thing going on. Taste is similar - upfront sherbet giving way to grapefruit/lemon tartness, straw/grass notes, and a lovely sour grapefruit finish that pickers and lingers for years (and turns a bit mandarin-ish while its at it). Not as puckering as a Cantillon, but more four than a Mariage Parfait or a Cuvee Rene. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Gueuzey yumminess. Mmmm.

I’ve had a million sours now and few have inspired the joy this beer still does after 15 or 20 encounters. Light and tart and fluffy and wild and crisp and vibrant. Amazing and honestly beautiful like a Dardennes film.

375ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy golden yellow with big foamy head, that familiar musky sour aroma coming straight out the bottle. Spritzy mouthfeel with an acidic, dry character.. green apples, lemon, funky yeast all create a sharp refreshing taste with a well-blended, tempered sourness.
