Le Roar Grrrz from Bullfrog Brewery out of Pennsylvania is an excellent American interpretation of the classic Belgian Gueuze. Aged in oak barrels with wild yeast and bacteria.
Final Rating: 4.54/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Bullfrog Le Roar Grrrz glass. Acquired in a trade with Brian. Thanks man!
Pours a hazy amber body with a two finger white head that reduces to leave a ring of foam and spotty lacing.
Aromas are thick and inviting, there’s a lot going on here. Predominately citrusy-funk, giving way to a mustyness, white grapes, oak, pepper, fruit skins.
On the tongue is a lightly tart citrus funk, musty basement, lots and lots of oak, champagne, white wine, bright fruits, finishes with a crisp, dry wine/champagne like astringency. Medium-light body, not very carbonated at all. Would have preferred a little more carbonation.
Overall a very, very solid Wild. This would definitely hold it’s own against some Belgian gueuzes. Complex, balanced.
