Dusty old gold color. Rich, sourish, fruity aromas of overripe apples and overripe pear, lemon vinaigrette, sourdough muffin, and banana leaves with a glycerous, lively, spritzy, very sweet light-to-medium body and a silky, medium-length honeyed quince and kumquat, sprouts, and grass finish. A nice gueuze-like sour beer.

Gueuze lambics are pale straw to golden in color and range in alcohol from 4-8%. Commonly brewed from unmalted wheat, pilsner malt and aged hops, the unique flavor profile of these beers is a result of wild, open-air fermentation in conjunction with extended aging in oak barrels, which imparts a unique and complex vinous character and sourness. Lambics labeled as gueuze are a blend of young and old beers typically ranging from 1-3 years. Blending results in a sharp champagne-like effervescence and tart, toasty flavors. Originating centuries ago in and around Brussels as farmhouse specialties, these beers are still brewed today in the same manner with many of the best examples still Belgian in origin. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René, Boon Oude Gueuze, Hanssens Oude Gueuze and Cantillon Gueuze Lambic.
