ST.LOUIS GUEUZE FOND TRADITION  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Lambic Gueuze from von Honsebrouck ( as Filip says the Kriek and Gueuze are the
only ones that are not brewed in Pottenland ), with an ABV of 5.0%. Last tasted
in 2011.

Pours a golden amber, with a frothy bubbly head. Good lacing.

Bretty fruity aroma, with hops and wheat.

It's medium bodied, and perfectly carbonated with a smooth, creamy and complex
mouthfeel and taste. Wonderful soft filling and bubbly too. Rounded, and with
great depth of flavour, it's strongly crisp and sharp with bretts, vinegar,
spices, and caramel at its coldest but it's always quite mild anyway, never
harsh and severe, and mellows even further as it warms. There is some slight
puckering, with the acidics, but overall it's certainly very easy drinking,
and with rye and wheat grains too in the dry and slightly bitter finish.   
Having now revisited this brew it's probably one of my favourites of the
style. Gorgeous stuff!


Cheers!
