Mort Subite Gueuze (Lambic)

Meterman: I find myself saying this too often; "Flavius what the fuck are you doing?"
Flavius: With the down turn in international equities, I am repositioning my assests in tangible precious metals.
M: Stop reading from the National Enquirer and answer my question again.
F: I'm selling all my stocks and buying gold.
M: Normally I would say this is wise, but nothing you ever do is wise. This is painfully apparent because you are balancing two "gold" bullions in one hand.
F: These are the lightweight versions, I got them off Ebay from a dealer in China. They came with a free case of condensed milk.
M: I'm having second thoughts about trying your Key lime pie.

Mort Subite - Gueuze (Belgian Lambic)

Taste +3

This is a standard Lambic style, but well done. There are sweet flavours of apples, caramel and cherries. It has an almost effervescent mouth to it. This is contrasted with a slight, very slight sourness. There is an uneventful lager nose.

Aftertaste 0

There is almost none to speak of, except for a slight fizzy cherry taste.

Alcohol Content 4.5% 0


Value -1

This brew was almost $4 for 375ml. Not a bargain at all.

Ingame Enhancement 0

I think I have to leave this criteria out, because I actually rarely play Call of Duty and review beers any more.

Overall Score 2/10

This would be a nice summer beer to try and impress girls. As I stare at an empty can of Holsten festbock, I came to realize that I could have bought two cans for the price of one lambic. That would have been a smart investment.
