4.31/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle with yellow label; says "2012, dec 5th". Tasted 1 October 2013.

Pours clear golden yellow, a touch of orange to it. Two fingers of white head, more than I find typical for a sour. Better retention, too. And there's a broad column of bubbles rising up through the glass.

Smell is incredible. Funky and sour, with so much depth and complexity, yet surprisingly clean. How all those characteristics can be found together I find hard to understand, but there they are, and they fit together like perfectly cut puzzle pieces. Wow. I'm just going to drink this in with my nose for a while...

Taste is, frankly, a bit too sour for me. It's potent, but a so strong that I literally feel like the enamel is being dissolved off my teeth. Is this beer, or an acid bath? I suppose it is what it's supposed to be, and there's a lot there behind that first powerful wave of sour. Funk, earth, and a fruity dance number. I dig this, but I could dig it a whole lot more if I didn't have to close my eyes and fight through the acid to find the other flavors.

Feel is delicate and delightful. Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, and an acidic streak that really dominates the feel. Wow again.

An outstanding gueuze. I just wish it were a bit gentler.

4.24/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
