Girardin Gueuze 1882 (Black Label)

375 mL corked and caged bottle poured into an oversize wine glass. Much darker color than I was expecting with a bright orange hue. Initial fizz of carbonation soon fades to not much at all.
Well, if this isn’t dry, farmhouse scrumpy cider without the apple taste I don’t know what is.
All the characteristics are there – dry and puckering aftertaste with a sour lip-smacking effect on the mouth.
Not my favorite drink by some distance, and I am at a bit of a loss to see why the Gueuze style gains so many plaudits when compared to real, dry authentic farmhouse cider.
