4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Apple cider colored peachy yellow brew, the head and lacing lasted a whole 3 seconds.
Smell: Definately a woody, old cask aroma. The funkyness is there, but more subdued than say 3F or Cantillon. In fact, it had a surprising freshness, almost minty herbal aroma that went leathery further on.
Taste: Low end carbonation pushes the acidity to good levels but without getting too astringent or "burning", the funky flavor tastes a bit more corky than woody, it again reminded me of a dry cider, especially in the finish, it's drying and tart but oh-so easy to drink and makes you drink more and more! I'm glad I finally got to find one of these rare beauties!

4.29/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
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.
