4.55/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: pours bright hazy golden orange. The head is large and creamy with a very good retention.
S: Smell is sour, fruity (citruses, pear), with faint funky notes and goat cheese.
T: Taste is very fruity (oranges, apples), lactic, sweet (lemon zests), with a moderate barnyard presence. The finish is citrusy and bitter (lemon, orange, grapefruit).
M: Just perfect mouthfell, medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. The sweetness balances very well the fruity blossom of this beer.
O: Very easy to drink yet very full of flavors. One very good blend achieved by a true Gueuze master!

4.83/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5
750ml bottle with foil and C&C. Poured into a Cantillon stemmed glass 5/19/2014.
A- hazy brown-orange body, much like a lighter apple cider. Effervescent two finger white head with great retention, nice film and some lacing.
S- Very intense, funk-forward nose. Peppercorns, lemon rind, grape skin, musty hay, leather, tangerines, lactic acid. So much going on. Impressive.
F- Bold and aggressive. Citrus, lemon zest, apple skin, musty hay, black pepper, lots and lots of funk that dominates the palate. Just enough yogurt lacto in the dregs to make me smile. A vinous finish reminds me of a nice champagne.
M- Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated and not too fizzy; nicely effervescent and drinks with a real pop! Funky, musty and lemony finish.
O- I see why many argue that this is the best of the 4. I liked Zomer's subtlety that didn't sacrifice much intensity, but this is right in your face intense and incredibly complex. A lambic for the ages.
