12.7 oz bottle poured into a wine glass. Pours amber hued and very effervescent. The bone white head quickly fizzes away to a tiny ring. Aroma is signature 3F: musty, cellar like, damp, coal and slight funk. Very likeable!
Taste is lactic and lemony sourness with medium intensity and an exceptionally clean character. While it is definitely sour, the tartness doesn't linger too much and it drinks like a more balanced beer. Although the young age might have something to do with it. Very bubbly and very clean, I loved it!
Having had this (good) and some other (not as good) Gueuze, I am definitely editing (up) my rating of Lente, that is perhaps the best I have had till date.

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.
