Girardin Gueuze 1882 (Black Label)

I lucked into this bottle.  What a world-class gueuze this was. The smell and initial taste made you think, just for a second, that it would have a funky or sour aftertaste but nope. Just a very clean, dry finish.

Gueuze beer is a traditional Belgian beer style.  They are blends of young and old lambic beers which are bottled and aged for a second fermentation. Some are more tart than this one but no gueuzes are hoppy.  This is probably the only type of Belgian beer I enjoy. I can’t handle some Belgian yeast flavors. Blegh.

Currently wearing an Urban Outfitters Crop Top. The velvet version (which I think is cooler) is available here.
