Girardin Gueuze 1882 (black label)


Type: Gueuze
Origin: Belgium
Price: $12 375mL
5% ABV

I had never heard of this style of beer before Alex brought it over while we were weighing our greens (see pic). Good 'ole wiki says it is a type of lambic made by blending young and mature lambics and fermenting a second time.

No doubt, the results are interesting. I feel like this style is an acquired taste, one I have yet to acquire. I was convinced it tasted like bottled lemon juice concentrate, with a tad less tartness and some more complexity from the bitterness. Regardless, I was on the verge of being trashed and even then I wasn't a fan.
