Recently shared at sour day by rvdoorn and papaeugene. Thanks again for a wonderful day guys!

From a 75cl bottle into a wine glass.
Bottled 13 April 2002

APPEARANCE: Pours a big, fluffy, white head with good retention. Gamboge orange in color, hazy, with medium levels of carbonation. A ring remains until the end but leaves no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Funky and acidic with tart lemon citrus notes, green apples, barnyard, hay, as well as some leather on the nose. Very nice.

TASTE: Funky, moldy, with lots of tart, lemon citrus flavors and sour green apples up front. Lots of smoky leather as well, with a good dose of acidic sourness and tart citrus fruits lingering on the palate. Soft and very well balanced, with lots of funk and slightly acidic sourness.

PALATE: Lighter body with higher levels of carbonation. Airy and bubbly on the palate, goes down okay and and finishes puckering. It calms and becomes creamier as it sits, turning into a smooth treat after a while.

OVERALL: This is really fantastic stuff. The feel needs a few minutes to calm a bit, but the overall quality of this aged gueuze is excellent. Well meshed and balanced flavors highlighting both the funky and acidic sourness sides of the style. A real treat and I'm happy to have had the chance to try this first vintage. Thanks again guys! Was another great sour day.
