750ml bottle dated 2004, poured into a tulip:
A: Gorgeous light amber color with excellent clarity, that reveals a gold hue when held up to the light. Good size white head that slowly fades leaving no lacing. Overall I would say this is a great looking beer.
S: Lemons, apples, wood and some serious funk jump out on the first whiff. A hint of lemons follow. There are some more sour wafts right at the end as it warms with some mystery spice tugging at my nose. This is evidently an impressively balanced gueuze.
T: Grapes, apples and some otheatre present in the first sip. Lemon emerges with a nice funky brett filled sour bite at the end. Not too much, just the perfect amount needed to coax the next taste, very dry. It is very well rounded and expertly blended.
M: The mouthfeel holds true to the test. Light and bubbly, it tickles the roof of the mouth. It is very champagne like in this respect.
D: This gueuze is one that I hope to revisit in the very near future. If you see this on the shelf, grab it.
