A very dry, sharp tasting, sour Gueuze. Oak is detectable in the aftertaste. The newest of the Gueuze blenders, the Bottle was dated 1998 and sampled in the De Cam Stekerij at Easter 2002. The Gueuze was extremely effervescent when de-corked. Excellent example of the style, a truly traditional Gueuze, will definitely become a favourite amongst Gueuze Monsters in years to come as the Vintages develop character, and may well mount a challenge for King Cantillons crown. The 1998 Vintage is one of the first batches to leave the Stekerij and hence the oldest. Review is for the 1998 Bottle. Note: Newer examples that I have tried (2000) lack the dryness and can be somewhat 'flat' when served. I believe that time will better this Gueuze in the years to come. Superb!!

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.
