750ml corked and caged 2011 bottle poured into tulip 25/11/13 cheers Liam for sending the bottle

A slight haze in a amber orange body, a few streams of bubbles run dry after a few minuets and it looks a little flat, there's some carbonation because it pumps out a short lived three finger head that leaves no lace
-second pour has much better retention, still leaves no lace but I'm guessing my glass was dirty

S mellow cheesy funk, apricot, peaches, pear, some dried grass and hay, and some leather shoe with lots of wet wood and leafy notes

T has just a little caramel, not completely dry, more grass then the nose, not apricot and peaches fade but some apple joins the pear, still has some funk but its not over the top, wood still has a big role

M I couldn't see many bubbles but there's plenty in the mouth, creams up almost to the point of foam, not all that sour for the style, quite slick after the fact, grassy funk on the finish

O well rounded and I guess that should be the case with a big blend like this, quite drinkable, not overly sour or acidic, and the funks mellow

No problems taking down the big bottle solo and that's not common for me among sours. I paid the same price for A&T so all things considered I doubt I'd stock up if I had the chance but I'm happy to have tried it

2011 vintage.

Pours a very hazy, bright golden orange color with tangerine hues and a frothy, two finger, pillowy white head.  Good retention, only slowly setting into a thick, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.  

Musty aroma with lots of earthy barnyard character along with lactic funk, damp oak, hay, light fruit and acidic acid.  Subtle acetic character but it's not solvent-like or overly vinegary.  Oak tannins along with musty bugs, horseblanket, lactic funk, grass and straw.  Some light fruit in there as well, notably apple and pear complimenting the lemon acidity.  The nose on this beer is pretty complex with plenty of earthy funk.

Full bodied with soft carbonation and tart, puckering sourness that lingers over the barnyard/ lactic funk flavors, oaky tannins, light fruit and citrus acidity into a tart, dry finish.  Very nice sour element by not harsh or overly acetic.  Crisp citrus/lemon juice acidity countered by earthy oak and lactic cheesiness.  Sweaty with dry, funky bugs, lemon spritz and a lingering soft acetic flavor that makes me drool for more.  Very refreshing and easy to drink considering the complexity and level of sourness.

Another huge thank you to Jeffo for this 2011 bottle.

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold with almost 3 fingers of frothy white head (after an aggressive pour).

Smell. Light grainy malt with lemony sourness, sweet hay and funk, and a little bit of old barrel.

Taste. Lemony sourness with a little rind as well, musty and sweet funk, plenty of old barrel flavours in the finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall. Quality gueuze. Very nice.
