Has a golden- amber color, with almost no head.

Citrusy crispness, as well as a tart funkiness, both with almost the same intensity, define the first impression of the nose. The fruit aspect gets enhanced by aromas of young green apples, supported by flowery qualities and old, musty hops, as well as leathery malts and cheesy yeast.

Has almost no carbonation at all, which gives the citrus peel fruitiness a lot of space on the palate to unfold. This goes along with very earthy, bready malts, both blending into a short glance of toffeish sweetness, reminding me of a lemon bonbon, which then immediately gets washed away, to introduce an intense dryness to the palate. Lemon rind qualities shine in this dryness, while malts vanish to a minimun, in which they are barely recognizable any longer. Finishes still very sour, almost fruity, due to the juicy lemon flavor, which got a resinous dryness to it, gluing the outside of my teeth. Very refreshing, complex, sour and well balanced Gueuze.

Bottle pour

Pours out with some slight fizz! Slight hints of white head stick around. The body is a golden orange.

The aroma is immensely deep. Layers of old musty funk pile up with fruity apricot and citrus notes.

A hint of carbonation is there but nothing of worth really. Musty, cheesy, apple, lemon, apricot, and ends dry.

Superb stuff as to be expected.
