DeclanT (59) - Tervuren, - MAR 7, 2013
75cl bottle from QVID.be. Exp 29/10/2029. Pop the cork and this is a gusher, take care when opening! Light tart flavour, scent of gueuze! this is a really good gueuze, full of flavour, pours with a frothy soapy head that disappears quickly to a surprising flat beer, but not in a bad way. Bitter, sour and smooth.
