A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white foam on top. Decent retention eventually leaving a small white cap on top. Lots of bubbles released from the bottom.
S: Nice combination of lemon and green apple mixed with some barnyard funk. There is a little bit of oak too. Nice level of funk.
T: Fantastic level of sour/tartness. Some green apple and apricot with a little bit of lemon zest and more musty funk.
M: Light to medium bodied, great level of carbonation. Easy drinking. Nice level of tartness/acidity.
O: A very nice gueuze, wish I had bought more than one bottle of it. Could drink this one all day.

Wow, excellent brew! Poured cold with a large, off-white, foamy, frothy, thick head that lasts a while and lots of lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with a load of tiny bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, sour, bread dough, malt - a fresh and clean quality. Flavor's like nose, fresh and clean, very dry with bitter and carbonic working very well with each other. Back of the tongue is left with an astringent feel. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, with a slight dry champagne flavor and again very clean. Outstanding.

Poured from 375mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip. Label says best before 2/15/2021; I think this is a 2011 bottling.
Appearance: nice medium-golden hue with a moderate haze and a very good effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. I like it!
Smell: a nice, moderately acidic tartness comes first with a backing of light sweetness. Mixed in with that is a deeper funk with some cherrylike quality, under which there is yet another layer of rich malt aroma. Beautifully blended, this smells wonderful.
Taste: big sourness right off the bat; much more tart than the aroma would suggest. There is a nice sweetness here which is still pretty balanced. There's also less funk in the flavor than in the aroma. Tart and enjoyable, but not as sublime as the smell.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a high level of carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Very enjoyable.
Overall: this is a very good beer which I'm really enjoying; however, I wish the flavor had the same wonderful complexity as the aroma.

375 ml bottle. Label is 2010-2011. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is funky brett, some light lemon, and a light earthiness. Not terribly complex, but not bad. The taste has a light initial sweetness with some barnyard funk, light lemon, and a decent tartness. The finish has a funky earthiness. Medium body. Light carbonation. Not bad, but not nearly as complex as the best gueuzes. I'll be curious if the 3-year blend is a big improvement over this 2-year blend.

Say what now? A gueuze producer I have yet to hear of? And they're blending lambics from all the major houses? Oh yes please. Dear God, yes.
Nice tones throughout on this beer, though it doesn't really "blow me away" in any particular way. It's just "good." Nice character, nice feel, nice all the way around. I guess that's the bottom line on this one: it's "nice." definitely holds all the character you really hope for a gueuze. If you enjoy the style, highly suggested. I think I may get several of these and let them rest for a while.
