The name Mort Subite, which translates as ‘Sudden Death’, comes from an old dice game played by patrons of Theophile Vossen’s pub in Brussel. So popular was the game that the pub was renamed Mort Subite. Over time the beers he sold from the De Keersmaeker brewery also inherited the name. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/01/2013

Appearance

(08-Dec-13) Clean, deep brown-amber with medium white head and heavy lacing.

Aroma

Fermenting cider apples and Demerara sugar with slight metallic hop note.

Taste

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.

Aftertaste

Sour fruity finish. Not one for hard-core, sour toothed gueuze aficionados, but this sweetie of a gueuze lambic is wonderfully approachable and enjoyable.
