Poured from 375 ml into a tulip glass

A- a hazy gold with very little head. Head disappears completely.

S- so much funk! Has a peachy, apricot smell followed by more funk. There is a sort of woody smell that adds to its funkiness.

T- follows the nose very well. Sweet peaches and apricots. Definitely some tropical fruit in there. The funkiness is a little harsh as there is a really strong undertone that sits in after the fruit dissipates. Pretty sour but not as sour as I expected. There is a pretty apparent bitterness hidden under the funky sour.

M- medium bodied and sour. Cheeks pucker but not anything too intense.

O- not the best gueuze I've had. But definitely a good one. If the bitterness wasn't there it would be way better.

2013 Belgian Flag label...pours rich yellow urine color...This beer smells amazingly oaky, earthy, & funky.... the taste is a balance of Oak, barnyard funk, and and medium lactic tones giving the tart lemony characteristics...Overall a great Gueuze... sadly i overpaid.... but it was tasty nonetheless...

750mL bottle into a Teku
Vintage 2011

A big thanks to joshwith for sending this one over in a trade!

A: Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with 1.5 fingers width of white head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves effectively zero lacing.

S: Lots of tart lactic acidiy, and an equally big lemon-lime citrus. I also get oak, vanilla, fruity esters, some floral notes, and subtle melting plastic like funk. Awesome.

T: Funkier than the nose, with that burnt plastic like character. Next I get a fair amount of citrus rind and lactic tartness. Pretty sour, but not to the degree of some Gueuzes or other Cantillon's Ive had. I also get a pretty big degree of floral notes, oak, some sweet citrus notes, and some bitterness. Tartness builtd throughout the drink. Theres a very nice flavor of oak and fruity esters that linger forever in the aftertaste. Great complexity, and really tasty beer.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation is moderate but lower than most examples Ive had of the style, fairly drying on the finish, and drinkability is very good.

O: One of the standards of the style, truly a classic.
