Poured into a stemmed MoB teku glass (375ml bottle, 2014 cork).
Thanks to Spinrsx for the bottle!

A: Hazy, light straw color with 2-3 fingers of bubbly white head with decent persistence and leaving islands of lacing as it falls.

S: The nose is strong and tasty while not being as intense as some other gueuze (maybe it needs a bit more time to warm). The sour and acidity hit you first, but behind that comes in some fruit, green apples and lemon rind, with a nice punch of white pepper; vinous and whispers of the JB Horns in the background, ready to open up (read: funk).

T: On the palat, it is dominated by dry sourness and acidity. The beer has a backbone of bitterness and spicy pepper (hops) and some funk.

M: The beer has a medium-light body and the perfect amount of carbonation keeping it round in flavor but light and lively on the tongue.

O: I don't have a wide gueuze background, but this really nice!
