4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on-tap at Monk’s Cafe
A - Pours cloudy golden amber with a one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of musty basement funk, light fruitiness, damp earth, apple skins and some light acidic sourness. This draught version has quite a bit more funk than the bottles I have come across.
T - Starts off with the musty funk and fruitiness from the nose but it is much more restrained in the taste while the acidic sourness levels are ramped up a bit. Hints of grass, green apples and some light sweetness round things out. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the palate long after the finish.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry, crisp feel throughout.
O - I liked this version. It has all of the flavors I would expect it to have and it is easy to consume. A little too pricy to have all of the time but every now and then is fine with me.

Soft sulfur note, earthy. Slighty hazy medium amber color. Nice sour note, assertive but not overpowering or overwhelming. Clean and tart, a sulphur note, clean finish and aftertaste.

Tap (Tuulensuu, Tampere) (8:4:4+:4:15=3.8+)
Heavently gueuze aroma. Lovely crisp palate. Some apricot, not as much as yesterday’s Girardin White Label bottle. A super mellow gueuze, but not lacking sharpness either. A refreshing smack in the chops. Finish has a lovely wheatiness, and is a touch fruity. A great gueuze.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours yellowish with a big white head, but that might be the taps fault. Aroma is sour funk, some light vinegar. Taste is rather sour. Body is nice with a sort of seltzer finish. Tasty if you are into the gueuze.
