4.75/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Brought this to a tasting, so I have the honors of opening the bottle. The cork was barely being contained by the cage as it tried to sneak out once the restraint was removed. Luckily we had a pitcher ready to catch the first couple of ounces.

Poured a light, slightly opaque gold color with a dull hue. A beautiful white foam cap proudly formed atop the beer and slowly receded to a thin layer leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is quite unbelievable! That patented Drie Fonteinen funk is greatly apparent mixed with hints of charred oak, sour dough bread, and light hints of stone fruit. Amazing!

The taste is outstanding as well with that blunt sourness and barnyard funk we expect from a well crafted Gueuze! Sour Peach and white pepper linger in the background. A bone dry finish makes me want another sip.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Medium high carbonation provides a pleasant effervescence. Bone dry finish works very well.

Overall this gueuze is quite outstanding. Plenty of funk and barnyard for sour lovers but with the scrubbing carbonation to lift the flavors keeping it from being cloyingly sour.

Shared this with atomicskis5:

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.
