4.16/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured into Duvel tulip from 750ml bottle. Pours a murky amber with a two-finger head of very fine foam.

Aroma: Pronounced sharp wood character, serious funky notes, sweet wheat-y, cereal-y character towards the back.

Taste: Follows nose with lots of funkiness, nicely balanced sourness, wood character is slightly less noticeable than in nose, nice cereal-y character to back everything up.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, very lively carbonation.

Overall: Really excellent. Spectacular, very funky and woody gueuze.

The beer comes in a hazy reddish orange color with a large bubbled large white head.

The aroma immediately has this aggressive funky character of farmyard, some slight stinky sock, with lots of fruit character in dried apricot, lemon peel, white grape peel with a substantial white breadiness in there. With some salinity as well.

The flavor follows with that dried fruit apricot and peach. Tons of white wine character. A lemon tartness throughout with some funky quality of farmyard and hay. Tons of champagne like carbonation that goes throughout.

I had this blind against Tilquin and this clearly won for its zesty fruit qualities and complexity with this beer.
