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.

julian (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Appearance is murky yellow in color with minimal lacing as the carbonation is nearly non-existent. Strike one for a "gueuze-style ale". Little to no head and zero lacing. Aroma has a bit of citrus, in the form of lemon/lime but this is quickly squashed by the abundance of acetic acid and its dominance on the nose. Taste follows suit. It’s quite tart but not in a complex, funky, traditional gueuze style way, more in a "oops I just squirted vinegar in my mouth" kinda way. Mouthfeel has an unusual oily papery feel. That’s the best way I can describe it. Nothing about this is "gueuze-style" in any way other than it was a blend of 3 different barrels. This was a drain pour. One of very few in the past several years (the last one was also a Bruery beer). Overall, I was less than impressed with this beer or the price tag it demanded. This is yet another overrated, sad failure of a beer from Bruery. They, as of this writing, will no longer be getting any of my business.

Yorker (1671) - 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 (5913) - 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 (484) - 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.

kajser27 (397) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 29, 2015
Cloudy yellow-amber colored, small white head. Aroma is sour, funky, some tart fruits and fruity sweetness. Taste is low to moderate sweet malt, funky, extreme sourness, almost unbearable, lactic, and then very nice oak and vanilla. Tart oaky aftertaste. Very dry finish. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Too sour for my buds, but the aroma and aftertaste are supreme.
