(08-Dec-13) Clean, deep brown-amber with medium white head and heavy lacing.
Fermenting cider apples and Demerara sugar with slight metallic hop note.
On the sweet side but rescued and made complex by sour undertones. Dried and stewed fruit, sour cider apples and a dash of wine vinegar.
Sour fruity finish. Not one for hard-core, sour toothed gueuze aficionados, but this sweetie of a gueuze lambic is wonderfully approachable and enjoyable.
