Bottled 2008, good for ten years. I can't wait that long.
A: hazy and orange with generous doses of froth topping off the brew. Lacing is vigorous, with bubbles quickly shooting for base to head.
S: quite possibly one of the most floral brews I've come across. The bouquet hits the nose immediately upon popping the cork. Farmhouse funk melds with spicy hay. Complex, pungent, and delightful.
T: extremely dry and puckering sour. Lemon lime citrus are complement funk, herbs, and grass.
M: light body with heavy carbonation. It reminds me of a good champagne.
D: a must have for any lambic lover. This is one of the best examples I have come across. Unfortunately, a limited number of bottles remain. Hurry up and snag one before they're gone.

Poured into a Bruery tulip. Bottled on 12/05/2012.
A: Produces a huge rocky white head. Thin and sudsy with a pale gold body. Very thing lacing but a good thick cap of head hangs about.
S: Lots of bright citrus fruit up front, white wine and a juicy lactic tang in the middle. Toasted oak with a musty, dirty brett hanging around.
T: An acidic, citric sourness with lots of white whine tartness leading into some apple vinegar and stinky cheese. Rounded out with oak barrel and lots of old wood and musty hay. Lingering acidity with a dough maltyness.
Mf: Crisp, drying and effervescent. Great drinkability. Despite the sharp flavors you keep going back for more.
O: One of the better geuze I've had. Lots of those really bizarre funky and sour flavors that only come from a lambic. Very easy drinking and enjoyable. Worth the cost.
