Mort Subite-Gueuze

Mort Subite Gueuze ("Mort Subite" translates into "sudden death") is a Belgian lambic from Brussels. It's a nice sour gueuze. Sold in 500mL bottles, this gueuze checks in at 4.5% alcohol. I enjoyed a bottle at the excellent Thirsty and Miserable beer bar in Kensington Market.
 Mort Subite Gueuze pours a clear chestnut brown colour with a lively eggshell head. It has a briny, seaside aroma. The flavour starts sweet, with fruity, crisp apple notes. Then it veers hard toward sour. It isn't classically refreshing, but it is definitely tasty.

Gueuze is a style that I don't frequently see in Toronto, and one that I love to get my hands on. Mort Subite Gueuze is probably not for everyone, but adventurous beer fans might find this one interesting. It is a solid brew and a great introduction to the gueuze style.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
