750ml, Delirium Cafe

2006 Vintage

Pale and very clear - gueuze tumbler. Definitely a bigger layer of flavor and more sour finish than the standard gueuze. Barnyard funk, hay, citrus zest, a touch acidic, white grape skin, brett. Liked this very much - it was rainin Lou Pepe's in Brussels!

2009 vintage, poured into a tulip throughout the night.

Pours a still and clear hay color with a tiny bit of fizz that dissipates quickly. Tiny bubbles can be seen dancing to the top throughout the session. Nothing particularly stands out about the appearance, it's actually rather underwhelming.

Opens with pungent goat cheese and zesty lemon on the nose. Aroma could have filled the room if I weren't enjoying this while reducing some pizza sauce. Moves onto more barnyard like characteristics such as fresh straw and your typical wet horse blanket smell that a proper lambic takes on with age.

Nice cheesey funk and more of that zesty citrus on the tongue. Pretty lactic. Nothing really stands out in the flavor, It pretty much follows the nose of this beer. Earthy cheese and citrus zest, not as much funk on the tongue as there was on the nose though.

Thicker than medium body and not particularly drying on the palate, but leaves a puckering.

Good funk on the nose and a nice lactic sourness with moderate levels of funk on the palate. I'll be honest, I expected more out of this bottle. It has nice characteristics but nothing I haven't gotten out of a regular bottle of aged Cantillon Geueuze. The flavor may have been a little better in some of those tbh. Although, it is a good beer. I just wanted this to be a touch better.
