Reviewed from notes. Shared by Richard - big thanks. 600th review.
2008 vintage, C&C 750ml bottle.
A: Pours a cloudy straw yellow under a 1/2-inch thick white head which fades quickly to the rim leaving a few spots of lace.
S: Puckering lemony zest and tannic oak with some vinous notes. Slightly dusty antique age.
T: Follows nose with bright tannins and citrus zest, vinous, must/funk, mellow barnyard bite.
M: Moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. Finishes zesty, tart, and tannic.
O: Such a treat and what a surprise. Amazed this is holding up so well. A wonderful wild ale. Only minor flaw is the lack of complexity.

The beer comes in a hazy bright straw yellow.
The aroma has funky hay, apricot, dried peach, and a decent tartness.
The flavor follows of tart lemons, stone fruit and nectarine, onto a medium minus malt backbone with a medium hay funk. There's a drying and tart quality in the back.
This is up there with the best gueuze I've had. It definitely holds back on the funk unlike Drie Fonteinen and Cantillon, but has a wonderful complexities and restraint.
