75cl bottle from Brussels. 2005-2006 on the neck. 6.5% abv.

A - A big, frothy, off-white head retains forever atop the apricot/nectarine hazed body. Tons of bubbles rip through my St. Feuillien balloon.

S - Belgian yeast on the back end, and MAJOR wild yeast notes throughout. Barnyard, socks, just... funky. Wet grass. Gueuze-y.

T - Quite tart up front but fades quickly. Doesn't stick to my lips like I enjoy in a robust gueuze. Big, wild notes, as well as a nice mineral water quality that adds to it's relatively tame complexity. As a beer, it's nice, but I've had better gueuzes. The more I get into it, the more tannic it becomes, with major leather notes on the back. Pink grapefruit juice nearing the end of the bottle.

M - Light bodied with a crisp, smooth, creamy carbonation. The nucleation site in this glass helps ease the bite. Still quite spritzy.

D - It's not gonna be hard for me to get through this bottle, but I could see how it could tire some people out.

Notes: Overall, a solid effort and a solid gueuze. Really holds well to the style, just somehow falls short in a couple aspects.

Pours amber with a lightly packed head.
Nose shows horse blanket, apple, earthy Brett and elderflower.
Moderately acidic flavours, more earthy Brett, apple, pear and elderflower. Quite herbal. Incredibly drinkable.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.
