Super good-time birthday/QLD beer week lambic tasting with the only other dude I know who likes lambic as much as I do, and whose birthday it also is. It was meant to be.
Cork came out with a mighty pop and a not-insignificant amount of this special and expensive beer immediately rushed out onto the floor. Geez. Poured into a couple wineglasses. Turbid amber with a monster head. I can smell it across the room. Farm (every part of a farm - fruit, moldy hay, animal poop). Properly funky and very appetizing.
Tart green apple and grapefruit bring the tingles to the corners of my mouth, followed by a big funk that gradually unfolds across the tongue - dry leaves, cold sore cream, wet wood, mushroomy cellar notes, more apple, more grapefruit. A note of sweetness underneath it all. Not the most complex gueuze I've ever had but probably the one with the biggest flavors, and integrated to a mystical degree. Finishes really clean so every sip is a contemplative break, and then BAM.
A little chewier than most lambics, which I like, but still utterly refreshing. Really well put together. I'm not one to keep track but it might be one of the two or three best beers I've had to date.

In short, this beer is phenomenal:
For the features that really matter (taste/smell) - Lilac, dandelion, wheat, grass, honey, pollen, lemon, hay, pepper are all present. This is a wonderfully round, decently tart gueuze - floral, bright, easy to drink.
