look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Probably the best Gueuze I've had, quite excellent.

A: Nice opaque orange color completely homogenous around the glass. Pinky of white foamy head and some great lacing.

S: This is phenomenal and complex. Citrus, butter, a nice tartness but not overly present. Great farmhouse yeast and straw malt but not overly funky. Very rich yet clear aroma. Has what I think of for gueuze, even with notes of whole grapes and a grassy old hop aroma.

T: Follows the smell with a hefty butter back and very fresh citrus front. I again get an aged hop grassiness that I enjoy. Tart champagne grapes, Great level of tartness, not super sour just pleasantly tart. Some bitter back.

M: Bubbly champagne feel and yet it has body and richness. Excellent.

Overall this is fantastic.

all three of these delicious beers were shared at darkness day by backfat and lurchingbeast-- huge sloppy fat props to both of you!

reviewed from notes

This one was shared by backfat (again! perhaps you've noticed a theme in the past several reviews-- I stood close to Dave for a good portion of the morning at Darkness Day, and it wasn't because I think he's cute. The dude brought the goods-- and I intended to tick them!)

back to the voicenotes-
Ahhhh backfat: a crazy fucking sexy bastard. Ohh he's a hairy beast alright! God I love him.
(yes, the preceding was actually part of my voicenotes... I have no excuses)

this beer is like a deep burnt orange color with some pink hues floating around in there. Bright white head is fizzy and shimmering white--- just looks gorgeous.

The nose is deep and complex- lots of bright light fruit with lots of citrus. Good deep complex oak and funk. This is certainly one of the best young gueuzes I've ever had. I can't believe how good this is for only being 4 or 5 months in the bottle.

Nice sourness-- kinda well-balanced and integrated.

Overall this is one of the best beers I've had in a long time... Wow. I want this beer. Really really fucking top-notch.
