4.5/5 rDev +2.7%
Bottle dated 2/1/08 served at Monk's Cafe in Philly in a Drie Fonteinen gueuze glass.
Pour: Pretty clear orange with no head and no carbonation. Body is nice and radient.
Smell: Immediate barnyard funk from two feet away as Jody, the bartender, pours. Up close I get more of it with some tart apple and lemon.
Taste: Tart granny smith apples, lemon zest, hay must, and barnyard funk. Some funky sour orange peel mixes in towards the end. The granny smith and lemon become more apparent through the rest of the bottle.
Mouthfeel: Tart but incredibly refreshing and drinkable.
Overall: Really fantastic and I enjoy it more then the Cantillon Oude Gueuze.

A true treat for all the senses. Promises greatness straight from the pour. An intense mixture of tart fruits and clean sourness emits from the glass and fills the air. Astringent and mouth-puckering even before I take my first sip. Upon a closer study of the appearance, the color is a murky, canary-yellow hue with a viscocity that seems heavier than the feel later reveals. A lightly knitted foamstand accompanies me to the bottom of the glass. The first sip reveals juicy flavors of young fruits and come in the examples of granny-smith apples, lemons, limes, pears, and mangos. A timid sweetness (sweetheart candies) bring a welcome balance to the acidity, vineous qualities. The feel is a juicy, mouthwatering lightness and drinkability; while finishing with a powdery dry champaign flavor. Very clean and inviting in the end. Simply a tremendous beer without the sharp astringency expected. Thanks Tony.
Revisited on June 27, 2009. Thanks Khaismus!
