PPWD Show. Started the beer tasting side of this show (from the wine side first) with the gueuze which is a good transition I must say. Very naked and sour. Quite nice but not a session beer of course. Oh that bite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL green glass pry-top with BBD End 09-2015.
Appearance: Pours a pale tan with very little white head. Looks like half tea half lemonade. No lacing or spotting on glass. Poured into Moinette goblet.
Nose: Sour peach, lemongrass, tea/lemonade half & half, powdered drink mix, dried reeds.
Palate: Immediately sour. Medium/light bodied with a nice, mostly smooth texture. Flavors of lemon zest, lime juice (with pulp), dried bamboo, pale green tea, lemonatta. Long, tart finish with some earthy lemon white pepper notes.
Notes: A great introduction to what gueuze should taste like. Not the most textured example, but a really tasty beer for the price. Needs food and beginners should prepare themselves for how sour this beer is.

Lemon juice and body odor! Hazy gold approaches clear on the edges with a bright white head around the rim. Quickly brash with the tart character, gets sweet for a split second, then back to straight citric acid. Great.

Cloudy gold color... Sour aroma prepares you for the characteristic tart flavor that is about to hit the palate... Leaves an acidic citrusy flavor in your palate long after your last sip... An enjoyable experience

Very sour. Blonde pour....funky aroma....like a well aged cheese. The flavor is amazing. Lots of acid....lemon juice and sourdough bread. Damn, this is good stuff. The finish is medium dry. I wish this were cheaper and on tap in my house.

375 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Best by 09-2017. Pours a slightly hazy amber with lots of visible carbonation and a medium head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is tart and fruity with notes of grape, green apple, citrus and vinegar. Taste is tart, slightly funky with white grape notes. Very dry. Spritzy mouthfeel.
