,From my humble beginnings thinking hoegarden was the best beer in the world, to today when i proudly proclaim my beer snobbishness to all those who will listen, i stand at at the pinnacle of my beer existence. Lou pepe gueze! Being an absolute sour fanatic, i was quite excited to get my hands on this. Not to mention an etre gourmet order set me back a pretty penny, it was all aboard the hype train express for me. Strictly in terms of guezes, i have had the 3f oude gueze and oude gueze golden blend ( champion) and some mass produced guezes like tiquilin, marriage parfiat etc . I have also had all the RR stuff and some some cantillon lambics. Now on to the LPG . Pours clear and thin, no haze and an orange yellowy pee color. Smells crisp and with a decent gueze funkness , pretty solid there but nothing overwhelming or impressive yet.

Flavor: Huge letdown ( let it be known my expectations were sky high) it has a mild gueze flavor with some lemon notes up front, but quickly tails off and you are left with a dry, almost metallic after taste that doesnt satisfy in the least. Not a bad gueze or anything like that, but given the ratings and reputation , i was hoping for so much more. It improved slightly as it warmed up with a little more cheese , funkness, but overall very subdued and the fact that the flavor died so quickly in the mouth was quite perturbing to say the least. Shame on you cantillon. drie fonteinen oude gueze golden blend smashes this brew like barry bonds smashes a hanging curveball cira 2002

on to the next !

2002 sticker 750 ml bottle generously shared by cpferris. Big thanks to Chad. Pours a clear amber with a small white head that settles to a ring. The aroma is super funky. Lots of must. Grapefruit, mushroom, forest floor. The taste is quite tart and funky. There is grapefruit, lemon, and apricot. The Finish is very tart and funky with some oak and a bit of astringency. Medium body. Low carbonation. Quite great. Possibly the funkiest beer I've had.
