Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition Gueuze at 5% ABV ($6.31 at Specs Main Branch, 375ml, bottle date 18-Jul-2012)

Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of loose ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is sour lemon, woody oak, mild dusty and cobwebby vinegar, slight funk. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong tart. (7/10) Medium body, prickly carbonation, dry and tart finish. (4/5)

A fairly plain gueuze – nothing exciting or complex, but decently well-behaved. The sour tartness is strongly pronounced, with restrained sweetness and mild cobwebby funk. (15/20)
