4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle into tumbler; purchased at the venerable Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Head is restrained for a gueuze, not as bilious as expected, but produces a wonderful doily lacing. Funk dispersing all over the air around the beer (accented with white grape tartness that’s a bit dark; reminds me a little of black label Girardin). And then: bam. Nicely aggressive acidity attacks the under-tongue (just like a gueuze should). Finish is bretty funk with lingering juicy fruitiness and a thin layer of confectioner’s sugar sweetness, and the acidity still attacking the glands in waves. Wonderful gueuze that hits all the sweet spots.

It pours a golden color with a pillow head. It has a sour aroma with fruits mixed in. It has a sour taste combined with being tart that has a pucker factor in addition to flavors. There are fruit flavors with moderate carbonation. It has an extra sour kick on the palate.

Bue en bouteille. Pas mon style de bière à la base. Je l’ai trouvée courte en bouche, avec une acidité modérée.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice orange color, a little hazy, with almost no head. Smell is citrus, tart, acetic, and a lot of wood notes, tannine. Taste is tart, but not so sour as I expected from one of the real Gueuze makers. Full mouthfeel, good carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding gueuze style! All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.
