Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 22nd December 2015. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen gueuze glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Funky, damp wood, hay, lemon juice, pear, with light apple and floral notes.
Taste: Light to moderate sour, lemon juice, citrus rind, pear, apple, with light funk and notes of lime and wet wood.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I heard this was described by someone as a table beer, and I thought that this was pretty accurate. It was brewed with the Senne Belgian sours in mind, so I’d call it a table gueuze when compared to the best of the gueuzes as although everything was enjoyable and worked together, it was still relatively muted in comparison.
