Valentine's day 07

A- buttered popcorn, toffee. Light collar, tight, whiteish...off white maybe. Low carb, appropriate.

S- light buttered popcorn. Bits of stale bread. Good tart bite that runs out quickly. Acetic. Apple sour back.

T- great sour Apple, nice citric acid bittering, acetic tartness. dry popcorn and tannic nature. Some oak woodiness lingers well.

M- good light body with full cream finish. Tight crisp carbonation. Great sticky flavors. The tannic bite lingers and extends.the bittering balancing out the initial tartness.

This is so nice and more complex than the regular. Much much.more enjoyable.

2002 vintage generously shared by cpferris. Thanks Chad.

A: Pours a cloudy golden iced-tea color with a quarter inch of bubbly off-white head that faded into a thin film.
S: Light tartness and a decent amount of earthy funk fill my nostrils, but the nose on this one isn’t super potent. I get a bit of sweat as well.
T: The delicate flavors follows the nose. I’m getting a lot more citrus than I expected though. The finish is full of lemon and earthy funk, and the aftertaste has some citrus rind tartness and a touch of biting acid. Not super complex.
M: Bubbly carbonation that is very active on my palate. Mouthfeel is lightly acidic and very dry.
O: A very drinkable gueuze if there ever was one, I just wish it was a little more potent.

dec 1 2011 vintage

a: burnt hay with a fairly low opacity. white froth forms and settles fairly quick leaving a bit of lacing behind.

S; sugared lemon a bit of solvent and reminds me of a foamy Mad Dog candy.

T: Green apple and anjou pear. Drying, astringent, and tart this is a good one and has just a bit of bitterness in the mix. Subtle earthy funk shows in the finish which lends some complexity to an otherwise clean finish.

M: carbonic tang

O: I like the flavors quite a bit in the way of sour candy. Not to be savored for a very long time, but worth investigating.
