I reviewed this beer a while back and then re-reviewed it last night. It’s better than I remember but not great. What’s weird about this beer is the De Troch Chapeau series comprises mostly of back sweetened sugared lambic. However, this bottle says Oude Gueuze on the label which means it can’t be sweetened and must consist of a blend of young and old lambic among other rules. Considering this, I had an open mind but was still disappointed.

Pours a hazy orange. Nose is very acidic, very sweet, almost foot smelling. Thick heavy, orange forward, very sour with a lot of sweetness at the end. almost no body, very little carbonation. Oh well, it’s technically Lambic?
