Bottled 12/12

A looks like an IPA. Cloudy dark orange almost bronze. Nice head retention lots of tiny bubbles. Looks pretty good.

S fragrant. Smells like funky champagne. White grapes maybe with some sweetness in the way back

T tart dry champagne type flavor right at the front followed by more very tart lemon juice flavors in the middle then some mellow soft sweetness on the back end

M A touch fizzy for me, but very nice. Definitely complements the flavors and improved the already enjoyable experience

O this is a tart beer. The sweetness on the back really made this beer for me. The tart flavors were enjoyable but the sweet finish helped to balance it out nicely.

Been searching for this for some time since my first taste some 6 months ago. Very fond memories. The cork popped assertively with a little bit of a gush, but I got most of it! Poured from 750 mL bottle with a moderate hand into 10 oz snifter. Date on bottle reads 2012 dec 7th.

A: Dark golden yellow with light orange tint. Cloudy. 1.5 finger width white head. Moderate lacing. Very inviting.

S: Tart lemons. Citrus sourness. Some lime even, which is a scent I don't often pick up in non-augmented beers. The most pleasant of funk. No vinegar. No feet. Just Brett as I imagine it in an ideal world. Now this is a Gueuze.

F: Sour citric acid burst with gradual, steady fade to clean, bone-dry finish. Lemon. Sour apple. Slight bitterness on the end. Minimal aftertaste. Just some lingering sourness and increased salivation. Begs for another sip. Superb.

M: High carbonation but drinks smoothly. Bursts in the mouth. Settles down nicely in the glass as it goes.

O: This is it for me. The deepest, best drinking gueuze I've had to date. I can't bring myself to score it a "perfect" 5, but I haven't had one better! Amazing, amazing brew.

Prost!
