COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages.  We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale. this is one complex beer.  Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and even olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.

Appearance: clear honeyed gold with no head or lacing despite a vigorous pour. Aroma: green apples, cider vinegar, a hint of honey smacks cereal. Taste: tart and vinegar-like up front, with a hint of saison funk; lots of fruit. Finish: dry and tart as fine champagne. Notes: This was unrelentingly tart and sour. I like a sour with a bit of sweet balance at the end, and this only got drier and more tart as I went on. Can’t do it.

SinH4 (1065) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 5, 2015
On tap at Toronado. Golden color with small white head. Apple funk, citrus acid, some barnyaed. Taste is dry citrus acid, apples, classic bretts, but very strong on the apples. Carbonation is medium for a Gueuze. A good Gueuze, albeit quite American - more citrus acid than barnyard funk.

Bottle. Fantastic. If you don’t believe me, Superspak also gave it a 4.2 and had this to say about it, " 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/10/2013. Pours slightly hazy bright gold color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart lemon peel, green apple, white wine, vinegar, wet hay, herbal, straw, grass, leather, musty funk, oak, pepper, cracker, light wheat, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, oak, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tart lemon peel, green apple, white wine, vinegar, wet hay, herbal, straw, grass, musty funk, leather, oak, pepper, cracker, wheat, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of fruity/vinegar acidic tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon peel, green apple, white wine, vinegar, wet hay, herbal, straw, grass, musty funk, leather, oak, pepper, wheat, cracker, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, oak, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great crisp malt/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately acidic, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome gueuze style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering."

Schmeek (5) - Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2015 does not count
Aroma of tart fruit and citrus. Beautiful deep gold with a hint of amber, white head dissipates quickly. Assertive sourness with apple, peach and apricot flavors up front and a slight oak character on the finish. Excellent beer.
