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.

Thanks to HisBoyElroy for the split. Heavy heavy sour. Sits sour in your stomach sour. All about the lemon. Not much funk. Not at all really. I don’t see how this is a gueuze. But still good stuff.

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color beer with a medium foamy head with limited retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of funky yeast notes with light barnyard notes and some tart notes. Taste is a well balance mix of tart notes with some funky yeast and light barnyard feel. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity but still not close to the level that can be tasted in Belgian lambic. I loved the way they control the acidity level.

Sampled at Great American Beer Festival 9/24/15. Aroma of sour notes, straw, funky yeast and stone fruits. Hints of oak and vanilla in the flavor. Very nice and refreshing overall.

Kindly shared by Martin @wethopping BBQ; aromas of dry cider, wood and a hint of funk, continued in taste; moderately tart, still sweet; nicely balanced. Good and refreshing.

Yorker (1932) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a tiny bit of sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, lemon, and wood - with a tart finish.

gyllenbock (6484) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of funk, wood, citrus, grapes and some hay. Similar taste. Elegant and with a nice funkiness. A very refreshing and nicely drinkable beer.

yourilevesque (906) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Dégustée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Le liquide est jaune et presque orangé. Trouble, mousseux. Au nez, des vapeurs aigres douces sur fond de vin blanc, de Chardonnay. Le nez est riche: beurré, acide et sucré. Ça annonce ici quelque chose de chargé. En bouche, le tout est plaisant mais loin d’être une Gueuze si on se fie à l’étiquette. C’est acide certes, mais aussi très boisé, chênu et plutôt rond. Lorsque le liquide est avalé, une finale de pomme verte très affirmée vient clôturer la gorgée, conjointement à cette effervescence qui pique le bout de la langue. Beaucoup trop de corps et ronde pour être ce qu’elle prétend être, cette bière est cependant loin d’être une mauvaise bien sûre.
