look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2010 sticker.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Nice white head. Thick collar and some nice surface wisps.

Smell - Lots of citrus. Lemony. Very spritzy. Some dry grass and a bit of a metallic aroma.

Taste - Much more dynamic. The citrus is lemony and orangey. Pale malt is stronger. Very woody. Dried grass. Woody finish.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Moderate sourness. Medium light body.

Overall - My white whale. An excellent Gueuze. I think I'd take a 3F over it, but it's remarkable.

2010 Bottle.

A: Very light straw. Extremely good clarity. Fine bubble head retreats to a rim. Moderate effervescence.

S: Big sour on front and gets more sour as it opens. Notes of vinegar, light malts, straw, neutral oak, and sour yeast.

T: Once again, strong sour on the front. Notes of straw, tobacco, lemons, dust, ripe pears, and neutral oak. Strong sour yeast.

M: Very smooth, but a bit puckering. High carbonation and light body.

O: This is a big-time sour, sour. Not for the faint (non sour) hearted. This is worth the price/hassle/patience - really. Lots of stuff going on with the bacteria and wild Belgium yeast makes this top-shelf. I did get a strong vinegar smell and taste, but that comes with the territory.
