Shared with JLindros and company at the last whale tasting. Reviewed from notes. 2003 vintage.

A - Poured into my Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy gold with a one finger white head that fades to leave a thin little blanket with halo. Seriously though, with a touch of the cage this beer errupted out of the bottle.

S - Super, super sharp funk. Rich and potent and powerful stuff here. Nice and earthy, faint flashes of malt. You can almost smell this from across the room.

T - Taste is super funky and super dry/tart. Like an old funky cheese. Delicious. Just insane the amount of funk in this beer. So musty and barnyard like. Floored.

M - Mouthfeel is very good carbonation, so tart and so absurdly funky. Excellent.

O - Overall this was an OMG bottle. Never figured I would get to try one of these. Next up is Blaebear and Isabelle!

Bottle thanks to hoppypocket. Glowing orange with huge creamy white foam. Impressive for a 9 year old beer. Aroma is distinctive barnyard, citrus peel, old cheddar and some old lambic (menthol). Taste is out of this world. It feels so fresh while being bone dry. Lots of citrus, must and some herbs. Feels like orange juice, nice moderate acidity with orange sweetness. Lively carbonation and light bodied. Awesome and refined, the best of the tasting and probably the best gueuze I've had.

Thanks kindly to Josh for sharing.

s - musty. barnyard funk.
t - musty barnyard funk, just like the nose. Really funky. very enjoyable.
m - dry finish...musty!
o - overall holding up amazingly well. really good, really funky, and really musty.

Generously opened by blatantdream alongside Roze at our big sour tasting last night. Thanks!

Loud pop from the cork announces its arrival, though Blauw kindly follows my house rules and doesn't gush. Impressively carbonated for a 9-year-old beer. Slightly hazy, golden-amber body sports tiny white bubbles up top.

Wow, the nose is incredible! Rich, potent funk; citrus; earthy yeast; a touch of sweet malt in the middle; hints of fruit. And again, its potency is impressive. My gf kept a small pour of this in a separate glass so she could smell it for the rest of the night.

Tasting reveals Blauw's delicate complexity. Tart and citrusy at first, mildly grassy in the middle, fades into a dry & funky finish. Rays of ripe fruit flavor shine through intermittently. Impressively layered; a joyous beverage to sip.

While I typically prefer fruit lambics to gueuze, this was phenomenal. Roze, by contrast, was overly grassy/earthy and not nearly as good. Blauw ranks among the best gueuze I've ever had.

750 ml bottle shared with friends

A bit of a gusher, this pours a wonderful straw color, hints of orange, copper, gold and amber when held to the light. Fairly cloudy and a few bubbles dance around the beer. The head on this beer is massive with huge billowing clouds of foam that has impeccable retention and fantastic lacing. The aroma is great, a bit soft, but great notes of funk, yeast, horseblanket, all that lovely stuff, but there is so much more, lemon zest, smooth malt, tart fruit, not too acidic at all. The flavors follow the nose well and are a bit more in focus, great funky flavors, tart apples, mild berries, a hint of sweetness, great savory flavors, almost like a spice note from the yeast with some simple grain. This really is a superb geuze, it has everything you could possibly want and it's near perfect harmony. The body is wonderful, so lively yet seemingly rich for a geuze. It dances on your tongue, but doesn't get too bubbly and prickly.

Verdict: Sublime geuze, perfect for sharing with good friends on a great day outdoors. The flavors are in unison, balanced, perfectly integrated and wonderfully complex. This defines a world class beer.
