4.18/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled Feb. 28 2004.

Cork pops, and streams of champagne bubbles are visible in the glass during the pour. Orangey body, with about 3 fingers of very fine foam.

Smells of damp soil, hay, and assorted farmy odors. This seems very earthy and natural, not unpleasant. Sharp wood and citrus note. The yeast becomes identifiable as it sits for awhile, it smells like old bread or even play-doh. The sediment is swirled and poured into separate glass, which releases an even more pronounced "stable funk" aroma.

Taste has an upfront citric sharpness, mainly grapefruit and crabapple. It's tart and mildly astringent in the mouth. A dry oak taste in the middle with a rounder, earthy grain that comes out as it warms. Citric notes, Iron, grape, phenols, and mild honey in the aftertaste. Clean, dry finish.

The initial tartness isn't off putting, it gives way to mellow complexity after the mouth acclimates to it. A residual sweet tartness remains on the lips.

This is a benchmark of the style to me, even though currently my favorite Gueuze is Girardin Black Label 1882.
