375 ml poured into a snifter. 2007 Vintage. Bottled 10-09-2010 (subtracted 20 years from best by date per website)

A: Pours a mostly opaque cloudy amber with a 1 finger that is not very compact and quick to dissipate. Lots of visible carbonation shooting to the surface. Head finishes as just a ring around the outside of the glass.

S: A very tart and sour fruitiness with a complimenting oak backing. A bit of funk and cellar in there. The fruit comes through as a blend of berries and cherries.

T: This one is certainly on the tart side of the spectrum. Intense at first any other flavor is undeserniable. After a second or two a fruitiness comes out. Oak notes are solid in the middle as well. A lambic yeast finish. I'm always a fan of pouring in the yeast for the last bit of the glass but would recommend skipping that on this vintage.

M: Light to medium body with great carbonation. Mouth puckering with its sour qualities. Any alcohol is lost in the tartness. Just a bit of stickiness upon finish.

Overall I will certainly be picking up a few more of these. About as far on the tart side as I would think sours can get. A little lacking in some complexity with fruitiness and whatnot but nonetheless a must try for anyone seeking the extreme.

Poured in to a tulip with a 1.5 finger, white head. Slightly hazed, golden colored body.

Aroma is lemony and citric. Good amounts of vinegar with some slight funk. Malty and a bit grainy.

Taste was lemony and acidic as well. Slight vinegar with some barnyard type funk. A bit earthy hop flavor with a fair amount of maltiness and grainy flavor.

Mouthfeel was medium/light body with high carb and a dry finish.

Overall an excellent beer. Wished I could get more of this easily. Loads of sour tartness while remaining drinkable.

2008 vintage, bb 27/07/2031

Appearance. Pours a hazy honey-gold with a finger of white head.

Smell. Sweet pears and tart green apples, some light earthy funk and old wood. Smells really nice.

Taste. Green apples again and a little bit of lemon juice, some lightly bitter wood and nice earthy, dry funk. There's a bit of a brett quality that stands out a bit more than most other classic gueuzes I've tried, not that this is a bad thing.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with medium-strong carbonation.

Overall. A very nice gueuze that would probably just get better with more age. With that, I may buy a bottle the next time I see it to put away for a while.
