An extraordinary bottle shared by emaineiacman at SMBDC meet-up in May, brought back from Belgium. One of the most exquisite & unusual blends of 8 of Belgium's best lambic brewers. Dry, woody, great aroma of mustiness, deep orangey color, long-lasting tart finish, respectable head. Has been on my life-list for awhile, and can say it is very much worth the effort to procure if gueuze is your passion.

Pours gold with a slight haze. Champagne like head off the first pour, but settles pretty quickly.

Musty aroma. Nice helping of horse blanker, should be a funk fest. Rounded out with expected tart apple.

Sour apple right up front. Tartness gradually increases until it's rounded out by nice grain and just a touch of vanilla. Horse blanket throughout lets you know exactly what this is.

Carbonation really brings out the flavours on this one, alive in the mouth. Nice quenching finish.

I was excited for this one, and it didn't let me down. As other reviewers have noted, age helps this round out.

750ml corked & caged bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip; shared at a tasting.

A: Hazy medium amber body with a finger of coarse white foam. Great looking lambic.

S: Leafy, herbal, grassy funk. Fully tart, and still containing a plethora of complex aromas. Sharp, clean, deep funkiness. Excellent.

T: Starts out with a blast of pure sourness, which soon opens into a smooth display of lightly sweet, hugely vegetal funk. Delicious.

M: Perfect mixture of a smoothly substantial medium body and a solid dose of soft, mouth-filling carbonation. Amazing.

D: This is 40% stronger than Cantillon Classic Gueuze? Really? This blend is perfectly balanced, perfectly tart, and totally drinkable.

Notes: What a treat. Gigantic thanks to John for sharing this funky gem. I've never had a bad gueuze, but this is absolutely one of the very best. It's a true testament to the blender's art that lambics from so many different breweries can come together in such a perfectly coherent, balanced package. Amazing.

Cheers!

750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

2011 Edition. Best before 28.10.2030. Bottle number 023099.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big and bubbled white head. Quite fizzy with a lot of bubbled coming from the bottom of the glass. Medium retention, practically no lacings and a thin layer that remains forever on the top

S: Very fruity, citrus and flowery. Strong notes of oranges, apples, pears, vinegar, sweet pale malts, flowery hops. A bit metallic. Earthy Lambic yeasts

T: Very fruity upfront. Funky. Notes of oranges, orange zest, grapefruit, vinegar and flowery hops. Dry but very smooth Lambic. Delicious. The only defect is the end that is not very persistent for such a delicious taste

M: Light body. Very fizzy. Medium carbonation. Metallic, hoppy and fruity aftertaste

O: Perfect drinkability. Perfect Lambic

4.58/5  rDev +7.8%

This beer travelled from Brussels to the US via plane.

A: Hazy yellow pour with a few fingers of white head that lasts a nice amount of time, but strangely doesn't last that long.

S: This beer is crazy funky. I believe the word is horseblanket, but I think it hints towards barnyard funk. It isn't necessarily tart, but very funky.

T: The taste gets back to a bit of funk and a nice fruitiness actually. Funky absolutely, but tart with raspberries and cherries. Overall funky and interesting. I can't say that I understand what all of these beers add to the drink, but I can get a lot of lambic here. Very nice geuze.

MF: This is carbonated really well, which I wasn't expecting. I pretty much figured it would have been undercarbed. Very drinkable.

O: This beer was outstanding. If you can find this beer drink it.
