Area Two Experimental Brewing Gueuze
What the brewers say
Our one-of-a-kind gueuze is a tradition-inspired blend of one-, two-, and three-year-old lambic-style ales.
What our panel thought
Aroma of black pepper, peach, mild acid, light mango, orange, and light herbal/celery note. In the flavor, acidity isn't quite harsh—rises and fades with light sweetness throughout. Mild herbal funk. Light notes of cinnamon, mango, kumquat. Good drinkability. Interesting spicy/herbal complexity.
What our editors thought
Musty cellar and tangerine on the nose—compelling contrast, with a touch of petrichor. Sneaky sip with low acid, minimal bitterness, and gradually building lactic pucker. Simple, lightly funky, easy to drink. Satisfying levels to savor.
