St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition

Mini-champagne, green glass, dimpled bottom and gold foiled neck. Green’s on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Light, honey colored body with some nice dense head and some pretty good retention and even a touch of lace. Some spotty head on the surface.
Nose is a standard, lightly sinus clearing acidity with green apples.
Obviously a pretty acidic profile with a lively, highly carbonate mouthfeel which adds to the experience. Finish is fairly short, clean and shows some sodium hydrogen carbonate. Strangely, after a while it gets a bit watery in the back end.
As is often the case with these brews, the acidic fades as the beer warms and the whole thing mellows out as the bottle is consumed.
A long way from the best example of the style, but nevertheless enjoyable and good value.
