Bought a 1 PT 9.4 FL OZ bottle from Hair of the Dog in St. Louis, MO for $25 & shared w/ GeoffTheAleMan. Poured from the Bright Yellow labeled bottle w/ a silhouette of a man in a chair leaning back & downing a cold one into a 0,47l New Belgium Oversized Snifter Glass. Has "Classic Gueuze, Ale Aged in Oak Barrels" on the front and on the back, Bottled: ?/?/2010 (Month & Day rubbed off)...

Aroma- Strongest sour, goaty, barnyard, and horsey notes you can ever imagine! Hits the nose with so much power, you go back for more but could give you a nosebleed if you tried hard enough. Watch out! Some fruit in here also but couldn't make out any specifics.

Appearance- Pours a 1.5 finger head that lasts the entire time! Has a golden color body and leaves good lacing behind. Not quite 100% clear but good clarity.

Flavor- Wow, wow, wow! Lemon puckering from the start to finish. Very well balanced though. Has nice malt and barnyard flavors while being able to see the oaky flavor mentioned on the bottle! No hops but not worried. Awesome from start to finish!

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Crazy High Carbonation, Lemon strength like never before, and then has a tart puckering on the finish.

Overall Impression- It took me over 600 beers to find but I found it! The perfect 5 out of 5 beer! It could be a 10 out of 10 too if you put it on an even tougher scale. If you get a chance, get your hands on this and let it age. I'm going to be searching far and wide for this and wouldn't mind buying 2 or 3 to enjoy once again and then age the other two! Not one category in this had any flaws... How could this be? Really appreciated the lemon flavors and how real this one was! Highly, HIGHLY recommended! Don't worry about the price on this one, it will be worth your buck.
