355 ml bottle (packaged 3/11) into a (512) chalice.
A yellowish-golden apple juice color sparkles in the sunlight, with an endless supply of carbonation streaming upward through the clear body. Head is well retained and pearly white. The aroma is an intoxicating blend of funk: wet paper, leather, earth, white grape rinds, and a hint of lemony tartness in the background.
The flavor left me longing for more sour (especially after a year in the bottle), but the tartness is there along with fresh-cut wood and melon rind. The body is juicy, yet equally dry on the finish with no room for lingering flavors. Carbonation is spot-on, making the mouthfeel light and crisp. Overall, a tasty Gueuze that really caught me by surprise. I bought this on a whim, and was glad to see it outshine Lindemans' sugary-sweet counterparts (framboise, kriek, etc.).
