this is of course, wonderful gueuze, but given the hype surrounding it, and in the context of a number of other comparable versions more readily available on the market, it just didn't wow me like i expected it to. thanks as usual, to drlovemd87 for procuring this and choosing to share it with me. its pale blonde to straw in color, and i can see bubbles but it never amasses any head. this is a 2009 vintage by the way, and its got a great nose of funky oak, lacto, and white wheat malt that has stood the test of time. the funk is there, and so is the sour, and the oak adds a lot more than usual, i mean, this is really oak dominated, woody in taste, semisweet, and clean finishing. not nearly as sour as it is funky, more of a must than a funk really, old and dank, mature might be the right word. its just not coming at me in waves, and it almost seems like a simple beer, lacking the complexity of others, maybe in a good way, maybe not. either way, it tastes almost familiar, and if this is the standard by which the style is measured, there are a lot of good copy cats out there. still, i love the yeast, and i love the softer feel to this, just a tickle of carbonation and a very easy drinking medium body. fun and special beer, but not a drink of the gods as some say, just great gueuze.
