SCHOUNE MA P’TITE GUEUZE

Fresh squeezed orange-marmalade nose perfect for farmhouse brewed lambic-styled gueuze. Interestingly detailed sinewy yeast viscosity clouds hazy sunset hue while acrid grass-hay-oak leathering kept to minimum (unlike some Belgians). Juicy apricot-grapefruit-tangerine tang turns dry as orange-peeled lemon rind tartness juxtaposes sweet ginger ale remnant of fine 8% alocohol digestif. Adept crossover abating stylistic acidity.

CANTILLON GUEUZE LAMBIC

Stylistically on the mark as brettanomyces-stricken cork-bottled Belgian sour ale. Utilizing wine-soured double fermentation, skanky dry fruited waft heightens vinous white peach, yellow grape, and green apple tartness above musty barnyard funk. Grassy-hopped horseblanket dryness saddles mineral-watered crispness. Tart green-yellow grape pucker may overwhelm its essence. Too soft to compete big time.

(HANSSENS) MEAD THE GUEUZE

By blending Hanssens tartly tannic gueuze with British winery’s honeyed mead, silky barnyard-dried hybrid settles to gossamer lemon-soured cider tartness. Unripe peach-pear-melon mouthfeel, sharp sour grape continuance and grassy herbal mustiness consume puffy cumulous-headed translucent yellow belly. Bubbly carbolic fizz could be obtrusive. Pour into glass to delete coarse vinous attribute.

HANSSENS OUDE GUEUZE LAMBIC

Extremely tart green apple-wafted pale-clouded “bottle matured” artisan lambic picks up intrusive musty earthen coarseness. Harsh cork-like dry grape sourness underlines fizzy white wine acidity. Explosive carbonation nearly blocks out subtle orange-peeled lemon rind souring and juniper berry bittering.  For highly individualized tastes intrigued by expensive Belgian ales. It’ll burn amateur stomachs like vinegar.
