Saeglopur (681) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2015
750 ml bottle #6674, shared by Cuso at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Bright orange body, with a big, frothy, white head.
Sour, tart and dry aroma of funk, sour fruits, earth, citrus.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more subtle sweetness.
Quite light, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sour, tart, dry.

Nice one. Straight, sour-dry, with the typical Lambic aromas in a great balance. Im not a huge fan of the Gueuze style and this wont change my mind, but still enjoyable.
