Bottle Share is a badge I would have thought I would have got by now. To get this one you have to share you check in on other social media platforms 10 times. Considering I've got over 900 check-ins that's very restrained. Anyway onto the review.
This beer definitely deserved a better close up of the beer itself, but when you've had quite a few before midday on Cup Day the brain doesn't always work the way it should. Anyway it looks like you would expect a Gueuze to look. It pours a cloudy deep golden colour with a brilliant white head. There were no signs of the explosive head that can occur once in a while with one of these.
How this beer tasted I remember more; it was spicy and there was plenty of citrus and vinous qualities but it wasn't hugely sour. Most of the citric flavour came from lemon but there was also some grapefruit and even some oranges. The mouthfeel is wonderful! It has this light feel and spritzy carbonation, which makes it dangerously drinkable.
Overall I was a bit disappointed with this one. It's a beer I've heard very good things about but for me it wasn't sour enough for the style. Since getting into Gueuze's I've developed a taste for the extreme; the sourer the better. Although this one didn't do it for my extreme palate, maybe it will appeal to you. It's certainly a beer that people rave about, maybe I'll have to get a couple more for further investigation. I'd love to know what you guys think, let me know your thoughts on this beer.
Remember it's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!
