85
Nose
Nutty and tart with an oily character.
Palate
Surprisingly mellow, oily and nutty. It still has an acetic burn, common to the style, but this has the air of being a rather refined example of a gueuze, even allowing soft fruit (peach, melon, citrus) to shine through.
Finish
Not too aggressive. Lightly warming and mildly bitter with a touch of sweetness and more of the same fruit.
Comment
Not as shocking to the palate as many gueuzes but challenging nonetheless. Sweet and commercial this is not, but it is perhaps just mellow enough to offer a starting point for gueuze novices.
