750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/17/2010. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart green apple, lemon, pear, grape, clove, pepper, oak, leather, hay, grass, straw, funk, white vinegar, wheat, and earthy yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast notes with a good amount of barrel presence; and good strength. Taste of big tart green apple, lemon, pear, grape, clove, oak, pepper, hay, grass, straw, leather, wheat, white vinegar, funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate tart acidity on the finish; with lingering notes of tart light fruits, clove, oak, pepper, hay, grass, straw, wheat, white vinegar, funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a good amount of oak presence and zero cloying acidity on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a crisp and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a world class Gueuze! All around incredible complexity and balance of flavors and aromas; and extremely smooth to sip on, even with the acidity. Completely amazing stuff as expected.

750 mL bottle. Bottled: 2 February 2012

A: Pours a sunset yellow color with a fingers worth of head that lasts surprisingly long (at least in terms of gueuze)

S: Nice and tart with a bit of funkiness. Lighter fruits come through as well as an oaky woodiness

T: Starts off with a bit of a puckering sour followed quickly by a refreshing tartness, subtle horse blanket, and light fruitiness. Oak finishes it out, along with a lingering tartness

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: A classic gueuze indeed. All the quality and flavors you would expect out of any gueuze are there as well as great drinkability for a sour beer. Obviously a little pricey, but definitely worth the $15-17 for a 750 mL bottle. A must-try for any gueuze/sour lover
