Pours hazy yellow orange with a bit of fizzy head. Smells pretty musty and cheesy, lots of acid underneath, lemon pulp and white wine. Taste is similar, cheese and must that turns into bright lemon and white wine flavors, a bit more on the mineral end. A little bit of citrus sweetness to balance things. Not very effervescent, but smooth and very enjoyable. Nice and warming due to high abv, which I'm enjoying much more than I thought I would. I'm gonna go out and get the kriek mariage parfait tomorrow; I'm pretty much sold on boon. Excellent beer.

Pours a fizzy, flat white head atop a golden, orange brew. Extremely bubbly, giving an otherwise fairly clear appearance a bit of haziness. Good retention.

Sharp, tart, musty aroma; dusty, with a hint of cheese; dry wheat crackers; hay; sharp in a non-citrus way; bit of pepper.

Soft, light, tart, funky, musty; the funk flavors (cheese, black pepper, hay, dust) hit right up front, but then quickly and effortlessly meld into the slightly sweet, slightly acidic and tart malt body.

Absolutely no hint of alcohol, which is remarkable for an 8% gueuze. Perhaps a slight warming in the chest. Mouthfeel is full, rich, and creamy, with slight foaming and sting up front. Very lively.

This is an excellent gueuze, and far superior to Boon's other offerings, in my limited experience. The Mariage Parfait series has not yet disappointed me.
