This is the Cuvee Saint Gilloise and a different beer. Not sure why they are put together in one on here. Pour is a transparent golden peach with a very loose small bubbled white head. The nose has a lightly dusty funk, cob web, hint of sea salt and some zesty yeast notes. There are some golden fruits behind and a strong hp punch of juicy citrus and floral hops. The taste seems brighter and more balanced. Very dusty funk, lemon rind and a bit of sour peach. There is a fair bit of lingering sourness, citrus hops, and an assertive bitterness with just a light touch of heat. Medium body, very active and granular on the palate, high carb and fairly dry. This is starting to open up in flavor and has an interesting and awesome hop presence and bitterness but not quite balanced and integrated enough to be great.
