750ml bottle, 2009 brew date, 2011 bottle date
A: Light cork pop, a few bubbles if poured aggressively, but not much. Nice clear, golden-orange.
S: Lemony, bits of tropical fruit, some musty barnyard but not much.
T: Not very tart at all. Somewhere mid-way between lemon and orange. A bit more malty than typical. Mild bitterness in the finish.
M: Barely carbonated. Has a savory, mouth-coating aspect that's a little odd, but not unpleasant. Not as dry as typical either.
O: This is classified as gueuze, but I'm not sure that's really accurate. The bottle describes it as lambic and indicates it's aged 2 years (rather than a mix of different years). The level of carbonation is also quite low, although most gueuze wouldn't referment this rapidly either. But, despite these stylistic uncertainties, I still find this rather enjoyable. I'll probably try to find another bottle and cellar it for a couple years to see if it picks up carbonation.
