12.7oz bottle, dated March 2008...served in a small chalice

A - pours with an inch of big and fluffy white and lightly yellow colored foam. eventually settles to a quarter inch of creamy film with spotty lacing around the glass. the beer is hazy, solid gold in color. beautiful.

S - bright and lively sour lemon, grapes, and apples...nice kick of yeasty barnyard & field funk, finishes with some oaky sweetness and field grains.

T - sour and funk immediately take to battle in all corners of the mouth - tart lemon, grapes, green apples joined by a subtle and pleasant horseblanket and green fields. finishes a bit sweeter than most gueuzes i am familiar with, bringing oak and more juicy lemon. potent acidic, bordering metallic finish - really growing on me.

M - incredible amount of crispy and prickly carbonation, barely holds back a smooth and creamy yet light bodied nectar. finishes incredibly dry, very clean. party in my mouth, indeed.

D - incredibly sour, funky, pretty, lively, and refreshing. one of the better beers i have been blessed to try, and possibly my favorite of the style.

Bottle marked "1999". Poured a hazy golden-marmalade beneath a creamy white head. Aromas of mineral, granite, wet leather, basement mustiness, citrus, and tropical fruit. The flavor is brash and tart, displaying notes of wood, cheese, fruit, leather, straw, ripped tin, and suggestions of blood, citrus and shit. Quite the stunner!!! For fans of geuze this one should not be missed. For the uninitiated, please stay away (leaving more for us!)... try something with a bit of fruit first.
