A classic. Wonderfully balanced. A great intro to the style.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into my Fantome tulip glass. Pours a hazy rusty copper with head that clears to just the rim of the glass.

Smells very tart/acidic, earthy. Hits your mouth pretty light then comes in with tart citrus which fades to a rich floral taste that hangs on the palette.

Extremely drinkable, light mouthfeel with only a little bit of that clinging sour.

2006 vintage, 33 cL, purchased in Brussels last summer for 4.95E - what a deal. Stored horizontally at 55* in wine cellar and opened immediately after removing from cellar (sediment in suspension).

Contents under pressure! High carbonation, strong head retention.

Smells like the most purest poop from a prized countryside horse, a really pampered all-natural horse...leather, earth, caves and cobwebs. Cork, Champagne, funky French cheese, sour green apples. I salivate from smelling it.

Wow. What a wave flavors. Sublime lingering presence. Tart orange marmalade, wheat.

It doesn't get much drier than this. Acidity seems to have faded over the years, making the flavours more subtle and graceful.

2009 dated bottle: Wow. Perfect champagne carbonation, perfect amount of funky tartness balanced by a little lemon zest, alcohol is totally masked. I want to serve this at my wedding, and of course the name is totally appropriate. At 8%, I'll probably have to provide a place to sleep, but that's fine by me.

I'd already given this beer a glowing review, but after trying several other gueuzes (including Tilquin, Cuvee Renee, and Oude Beersel), this one stands out as the best to me. I'd imagine its age has something to do with it, but still. Wow. I'm definitely going back to the store and buying them out of 375s and 750s in preparation of my "perfect marriage." :)
