750 ml bottle, best before date of 29/10/32, 2013 vintage. Poured into a wine glass while I was waiting for my flight at Brussels Zaventem airport.

A- Pours a hazy gold color, big white head, great retention and lacing.

S- Lemon acidity, lots of funk, hay and socks/sweatiness.

T- Lemony tartness, moderate acidity, hay and milder funkiness, some bretty apple/pear fruit flavors, oak towards the finish.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth, soft feel.

O- A nice blend overall but nothing here really jumps out at me, at least I can't taste the de Troch.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage.

3.5 A: Well hazed dark yellow with some brownish hues. Three finges of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a few whisps of lacing are left.

4.25 S: Smells like a saison in a lot of ways. Funk forward without a lot of acidity. Flowery and herbal to start with a dry woodiness underneath. Dust, dryrot, jasmine, pollen, wildflower, and apple orchard. Super dry with lots of depth and complexity though not a geuezy as others I've had.

4.25 T: Ahhh, here it is. While anyone could mistake the nose for that of a saison, the taste is decidedly gueuze. Lots of funk in the nose as well, but a sollid acidity as well. Flowery and herbal again with the same dry woodiness, pollen, wildflowers, and apple orchard. Mild, but balancing tartness and a bit more tangy lactic acid. Fruitiness that wasn't really found in the nose is now here. Plenty of lemon, a bit of lime, apple, and peach. Solid here with good complexity and depth.

3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good upper moderate carbonation. Not particularly creamy or spritzy, but good nonetheless.

4.0 D: Solid all around. A bit pricey, but such is the style. Definitely worth a try and a not a bad beer to stock up on either.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml into a snifter. Batch 1 (2009).

A: Pours a slightly turbid light copper with a pillowy and thick white head.

S: The aroma is quite brett-heavy. Sweaty, sticky citrus, horseblanket, light mineral, gamey hay.

T: The taste is slightly cleaner, with a pronounced yet short-lived acidity. Mildly sweet pale malt quickly overtaken by dry lactic sourness, some subtle cheesy funk, tart lemon and raspberry.

M: Light-bodied with very frothy carbonation. Very dry.

O: A very nice, balanced geuze - not too unique, but very tasty and refreshing.
