Bottle dated Dec 12 2009
A - Pours medium gold. Fluffy off white head tops out at just over half inch and sticks around for a very long time. Lacing is surprisingly average. Lots of active carbonation present giving it a champagne like glimmer.
S - Young green apple and lemon on the front end. Kind of a spicy white pepper and oak show strong in the middle which works well for me. Finishes up with hints of horse stall, horseradish, and a touch of peach.
T - Very citrus laden in the flavor. Lemon mostly followed by pink grapefruit and apple. Also very earthy in the flavor. Oak, leather, hay come to mind. Light sweetness towards the end with some malt and yeast. Alcohol is not present in the slightest.
M - Lighter bodied with a very active carbonation level which works well for this particular beverage. Finish is dry and sour.
O - Been looking forward to trying this one for a while and it didn't disappoint. Seems like every aspect of this beer is near perfect. The folks at Fonteinen and convinced me to make the effort to seek out others in their line up. Highly recommended.

Must confess, I am finding guezes a tad difficult to review, in that they do mostly seem to exhibit the same flavours, well at least the good ones do.
This one.... Looks the biz, lovely gold straw initial pour, with pillowy white head, aromas of cooking apples, lemons, semillon, wood... Taste to follow is nice and sour, in vein of aromas, more lemons, but not quite puckering. Dances on tongue with light, but definite carbonation.
All in all top stuff, top gueze.... Maybe I just need to do a massive a - b taste comparison to start understanding the subtleties that set this apart from, say, Cantillon. Maybe less sour? Hmmm
