Big thanks to DrJay for hooking me up with this beauty for BC2! From a 750 ml, foiled, capped and corked.

Pours a slightly hazy golden, huge soapy white head forms, big bubbles, quickly settles down to a decent layer, leaves some sticky lace on its way down. Smell is insane, very fresh and funky, sharp spice bite, sour fruits, acidity, citrus, apples, nice. Taste is sour apples, citrus, caramel, funk, hay, citric acidity in the finish, nice and sour. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low carbonation, very smooth. Nice balance, very drinkable Gueuze with enough complexity to keep people happy, and not too intense to keep people away. Thanks a lot Jay!

Capped and corked 750 bottle on 03/2007.

I poured this into my oversized Triple Karmeliet tulip using several pours. This is my first tango with a gueze so bare with me. The appearance is a hazy peach that burst forth a large white head that melts away into a gentle ring on the sides of the glass. This beer has a surprisingly think appearance. Even when held to the light, nothing will show through. The aroma is musty at first, then with tart citric notes that come fluttering in. There are also spicy notes that almost remind me of the nutmeg aromas from a pumpkin pie. The aroma is very complex but yet oddly straightforward. While it seems that there are many notes coming from the beer, with every new whiff something else comes through. All the aromas are straightforward. The taste is again musty up front with just a slight bit of funk. Then its cheek puckering citric tartness, the kind that hits you right behind the jaw. This is really good. The mouthfeel is crisp and very dry, with just a light carbonation that lends itself to the dryness. This is a great beer. Very well crafted by the brewers at Lindemans. Unfortunately, its not something I could drink everyday.

1994 bottle cellared by a friend of mine in excellent conditons. The beer pours a glowing orange with a little head. The aroma is of dry white grapes or the cork from a merlot bottle. The flavor kicks you in the mouth. I am not a fan of very sour things, so this was not too appealing to me. Sour, sour, sour. Very citrusy and sour. There are also some woody notes, perhaps oak. Green apple peel, pear, and white grape juice flavors all fill the glass. This beer overall is excellently complex but I just don't like the intense sour flavor.
