New Brew Thursday: De Troch Oude Gueuze
De Troch Oude Gueuze 2014
Pajottenland, Wambeek, Belgium

Gueuze. It's magical. What is it you ask? Well, it all starts with a Lambic (an oak ripend spontaneously fermented ale). A one year old Lambic is blended with an older Lambic and -- MAGIC -- a second spontaneous fermentation happens in the bottle, creating the Gueuze. 

Review: A cloudy gold-amber color. Aromas of funk, barnyard, dried apricots, lemon rind. Dry, bright acid, tons of apricot, quince, lemon grass -- all set on a backdrop of farmy funky flavors.

Bottom Line: Bright and farmy. I love it.
