166/1440) Home:  St. Louis Premium Gueuze Lambic by Castle Brewery Eggenberg of Belgium:  **;  4.5%;  the LCBO sticker attached calls this an "alcoholic malt beverage: brewed with barley, wheat, sugar, hops, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and steviol glycosides from steiva,  a somewhat contentious natural sweetener (but aren't they all);  tart, cidery nose;  not as carbonated as many a gueuze;  the sugariness is off-set by a tart bite at the finish;

Steiva is not to be confused with the pharmaceutical preparation Stieva-A.
