From The Bruery – Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages. We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale. this is one complex beer. Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and even olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.
The Bruery – The Bruery Rueuze – 750 ml bottle poured into a goblet. 5.9% abv.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy bright amber gold with no head.
Aroma: Peach, lemon, funk, wet basement.
Taste: Spicy tart yeast,lemon/citric acidity, tanins. Fairly sour finish.
Mouthfeel: Puckering. Full bodied. Lively carbonation.
Overall: Pretty tasty, a bit on the acidic side for my gueuze tastes, perhaps I am extra sensitive to that? I wish I had a case to age over 5-6 years, as this beer seems to be perfect for that type of enjoyment. Hopefully this beer is kept in rotation for years to come.
