2011 vintage poured into flutes.
Thanks to beerwolf77 for just giving me this beer. You shall be repayed.
A- Pours a hazy light straw with minimal head and pretty much no lacing. Reminds me of an unblended lambic.
S- Classic gueuze. Good amounts of funk, gym socks, some hay and a few sour notes as well. My mouth is beginning to water.
T- Since this is still young, it doesn't pack the sour punch that some with age on it. Regardless, it is still quite tasty. Heavy on the funk and barnyard. A little bit of must some cut hay.
M- There are hints of sourness but nothing major. Pretty dry and decent carbonation.
O- All the components are there for a great gueuze and with a few years on it, this baby will really shine. I wonder who I know has a few bottles from around 2005? The generosity of beerwolf77 never ends.

Bottle poured at Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours light yellowish gold with a small rim of white head on top. Aroma of candi sugar and mint leaves, dry, dusty, light citrus. Flavor is funky like my gym socks. Whoah. Some lemon notes, dry oakiness, and some vanilla as well here. More chewy body than other gueuzes in the class that I've had, and low plus carbonation. Nice brew overall, and a bit of a change-up from the LP Gueuze earlier in the night. Recommended.
