2003 Vintage, many thanks to hannont for sharing this.

This beer defies traditional reviewing. Yes, classic gueuze aromas of hay and barnyard and lemon and a refreshing tartness, but what I really mean to say is: this beer smells and tastes like heaven. With complete seriousness, I think this is the best beer I have ever tasted. Should you find yourself in the presence of this beer, do not pass it up under any circumstances.

2002 Vintage (red label), sampled July 2010

Pours with an enormous white head, looks great for being 8 years old, a lightly hazed orange-amber-peach, a bit darker than I expected.

Smell: Perfect, tart and funky, tart and sour apples and grapes, elements of oak, sweat, damp stone, leather, and farmhouse / horse blanket.

Taste: Nice mild acidity, a perfect complement to the funk. Tart and funky as I said above, sour apples and grape with hints of oak, sweat, damp stone, leather and farmhouse / horse blanket. Also a white wine / sauvignon blanc element. Perhaps the most refined tasting Gueuze I have encountered. The taste is much less funky than the nose.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with a nice prickly mouthfeel; impressive for the age; very dry

Drinkability: Amazing, this is one of the best Gueuzes I have ever tasted.
