750 ml bottle poured into a Drie Fonteinen gueuze tumbler.

Pours a great golden color, a tad bit hazy, a thin white head appears and dissipates right away, pretty much all you can ask for in a wild ale, I do wish there was a bit more head to it though. The aroma is just sublime, lemons, a bit of hay, grapefruit, a touch of chewy sweet oak. Some tart green apple and white grape comes out the end, just a fantastic way to greet your nose. The flavors are just as wonderful, tart lemon, a bit of grapefruit, oak, green apple, a bit more hay, just a little bit of funk, but the fruit flavors really mix well with the earthiness, the balance is about as good as it gets and the profile is so spot on, everything plays with each other so well. The body is amazing, perfectly carbonated, not too big, not too thin, coats the mouth so well and has a fantastic dry finish.

Verdict: This is definitely one of the best beers on the planet and deservedly has a reputation as being one. I really can't think of anything to change about this beer and my wishing for more head might be out of line. My hats off to Tomme for this, a true gem.
