This beer was my official public introduction to old gueuze in Belgium, much to the surprise of my local owner/bartender. It looked fantastic, poured out of an old bottle with mold on the label, I knew it was going to be an experience. The smell was citris and age, and once I poured it into my mouth the first thing I said when I slammed down the glass on the split wood bar was, "holy sh*t!" which I can imagine even the Belgians know since all their television shows have English subtitles. The sourness hits you like a truck, and it's all uphill from there. Nice citrus and a cloying (not even sure I know what that term means) feeling that is unique. Not my particular cup of tea, but a great experience I'll remember forever. Try it!
