Bottle says 20/01/2031, which suggests to me that it was bottled January 2011. Tasted 1 July 2012, reviewed from notes.
Pours a golden orangey-yellow color. Very clear, with about 1 finger of white head, all big bubbles. Tons of carbonation visible in the glass.
Smell is a musty, yeasty aroma, with a little bit of sour and a light sweet kick. Better than the taste, but didn't wow me.
Taste has a touch of lemony sour, but a whole lot of bitter and straw-like flavors, without the complexity and sour I'm looking for. Finish is mildly bitter.
Mouthfeel is good. Light-bodied, plenty of carbonation.
An okay gueuze, but not my favorite. Generally dull, without much sour or depth, and dominated by the wrong flavors, IMO.
