375ml corked and caged bottle from Jan 2009.
Okay, I put it in the fridge for about an hour and when I removed the cage, the cork shot out like a rocket. Thankfully, I didn't lose much of the beer.
It pours a huge head of foam..I can see a cloudy straw yellow brew underneath. As the foam shrinks, it leaves some nice lacing behind.
The smell is both very sour and a bit bitter. Lots of apple like tartness dominate but there's also a barnyard kind of smell there. It smells so good. I wonder if the taste can match it.
Green apple tartness is up front, slight hint of funk, a bit of hop bitterness, more sourness...this is a grand brew to drink if you really dig sours. I'm smacking my mouth drinking this. I just don't want the sourness of this brew to leave my palate!
On the low end of medium bodied with a lively level of carbonation, the mouthfeel is just fine.
This IS one hell of a Gueuze! De Cam beers are awesome!

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled January 2009.
Appearance - The cage came off without event, but the slightest pressure on the cork causes it to fly off and the beer begins to gush. Fills the glass with white foam. It settles quickly and leaves very little on the surface. The body is clear deep golden.
Smell - Lots of white pepper. Bright orange citrus. Hefty oak. A little bit of pale malt. Light acidity.
Taste - Sour up front, but drops off quickly. Drops off to oak and pepper. The malt lends a hint of sweetness and then becomes orangey. Strong oak lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Very dry. The body drops off quickly. High carbonation.
Overall - Excellent without being all that dynamic. Missing some of the sour and malt characteristics that would allow this to transcend other gueuzes.
