This is the 2010 - 2011 vintage poured into a tulip glass. 375 ml bottle.
Appearance: Very hazy and dark amber and orange color. Little more than a one finger eggshell white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Love how hazy this is, it almost looks like orange juice.
Nose: Very nice funk. It's not as prominent as Cantillon or 3F, but pretty close. Has that classic Belgian funk to it though, lots of barnyard, dank basement like notes. I get a bit of spicy, herbal notes, maybe some slight pepper. Has a very nice lemony tartness that blends well with the funk.
Taste: A lot of funk with tons of lemony tartness. It's pretty sour, maybe about a 7 to 7.5 out of 10, which I'm sure has a bit to do with the age. That lemony sourness lingers for so long, it's great. I could wait a few minutes, dig my tongue in between my lip and gums and still get a nice punch of sour lemon.
Mouthfeel: Again, pretty sour and bone dry. Medium light feel with lower to mid carbonation. Absolutely perfect for the style.
Overall: This is pretty fantastic gueuze. It's right up there with Cantillon and 3F. If this had just a bit more funk or complex notes, it would put this gueuze over the top. Maybe one day they'll stock this on the shelves in Texas so I can buy it all.
