Poured from 375mL to a snifter. Cork says batch 2551 from 2010.

A: A very cloudy copper orange with a thin white head that lasts for days

S: Sweet fresh green apples, some funk, and a latent peach aroma

T: A whole lot going on here. This is actually a little less dry than I'd like in a gueuze, but the flavors play well together. Initially, you get a rather sweet gueuze with a sour bite. After, some funk and some tropical fruits take over; think papaya and the bitter finish that mango sometimes has. The funk dances in between the fruit flavors and is very nearly the only thing keeping this beer from becoming cloyingly sweet.

M: Not quite syrupy, but rather thick for a gueuze. Very good carbonation and leaves your mouth wanting for more.

O: A very good gueuze, especially for the price (~$8-9/375mL here) and availability. I'm curious to see how this one ages and I expect it to do very well. It's considerably better and more complex than the normal gueuze, but I'm not sure that's it's almost twice as good.

Cloudy orange gold pour with a one-finger white head. Big sour fruit aroma. Delicious mild sour lemon taste upfront backed with a slight fruity sweetness. Also has a very nice oak character and light spice flavor in the medium body. Really well done beer that isn’t overly sour or tart and drinks very easy for the body and slightly high ABV.

2007 on the neck

A: After popping the cork with a loud pop, the beer poured into a teku glass with 3 fingers of loud fizzy head; pale white in color, it fizzed out fairly quickly leaving no trace of lacing on the glass. The beer has a murky appearance, copper to dark orange.

S: Bright lemon character that melds into a tart sweetness. Mild amounts of funky brett character in the nose with a slight bready note in the end.

T: A bright sharp sourness from, three more sips and the pallet adjusts bringing out lemon zest, rustic funk and a refreshing bready undertone. As the beer warms the brett character becomes more apparent and brings out the woody oak flavor. The tart sourness stays bright throughout but it seems to become more refined as it warms. Sweetness is low and a nice compliment to the overall flavor.

M: The high carbonation gets very sharp on the tongue as you chew on the beer. Very dry but the oak gives it the sense of body. Tingling from the sourness starts to numb the tongue after awhile.

O: Complex, tart and a nice funky and oak undertone. At a reasonable price this was a nice geuze. I'd pick this up again if I see it.
