750ml corked and capped. The belt and suspenders approach. A 2010 vintage. Normally I'd talk appearance first but the moment you open the bottle there is this fantastic vinegar wood sugar smell. Pouring it into the glass I get more candi sugar, lemons, apricots. Nice, nice, nice. The pour is a hazy gold with a very active head that settles into a nice creamy layer and then leaves just a hint of lacing. Taste is absolutely incredible. It starts with an orange lemon citrus flavor, then a nice chewy sour followed by a woody dryness. There is a LOT going on in this beer. The aftertaste is almost vanilla and very pleasant. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and then almost sticky. Very nice and adds to the overall feeling of substantialness. Overall, what can I say, this is definitely one of the best gueuzes I've ever had, hands down.

One of the best examples of a gueuze I have ever tried. Amazing.
