older than the golden doesjel, this is a different brew, our bottle has a 2006 date on it, how fun! still flat, golden and thin looking with just a few splotchy bubbles around the edges of my wine glass. the nose is cool, very old, moderately oxidized, but with a cool fleshy sourness and a green pepper kick to it. the flavor is much of the same with the green pepper coming more up front and it easing into intensely acidic sour lambic type beer. i think age has done this well, its thinness in body makes me miss the carbonation less, and i like that better than the other one, but its still weird to have flat lambic. oaky and funky too, its got an almost marker taste to it in the finish, oxidation with lacto i assume, but i still like the flavor on the whole. this may have been aged a little past its prime, but the beer is also a weird one, somewhat accidental from the brewery if i remember right. fun bottle to share if there are still some around...

Amazing and dare I say taste bud altering at least for me...

Still appearance, just only a few bubbles, to break up the goldenrod straw body. No real foam or head last more than 5 seconds after the glass is set on the table. It isn't as impressive as other guezes, but it is exactly what it should be.

The nose was the most complex as anything that I have enjoyed. It smells like my grandma's old attic at the family farm. The aroma of must, slight mildew, old varnish, and leather. There is a bit of acidity like a classic aged vinegar. It is amazing and it is like a fine red wine - something you want to savor and stick your nose deep into it. I can't wait to enjoy it.

I love the taste and how complex it is. I don't know if I could be as bold to tell you I can taste the individual lambics, but I love the layering. The taste keeps evolving over nearly the two hours I have enjoyed it. I get the classic flavors with various alterations. The classic mild tartness and deep funk is amazing. I get malted wheat and various earthiness. I get a lot of mushroom essence and cheese rinds. At one point I could swear I could get taste blue cheese and then the rind of a triple cream brie. This is the most complex and shapeshifting brew ever. I love the delicate mouthfeel with the smallest carbonation. This isn't a daily/weekly drinker, but its a special occasion beer.

Don't jump on this bandwagon and stockpile, please I can't find this brew already.
