Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The sour funk aroma meets me long before the glass approaches my lips. Citrus orange sourness hiding behind some stale, rotting fruits. Smells like a dead cat stuck behind a leaky water heater. Lovely.
Taste is sweet-and-sour, fresh fruit juice on top of fruit juice that's been sitting in a hot room for a week. Traditional musty, moldy flavors but not as much as some other gueuzeses (gueuzi?), less barnyard and horse blanket and more back-of-the-fridge, forgotten fruit that now has more hair than you do.
Mouthfeel is medium, I hesitate to call it "clean" although there are no identifiable defects or anything un-gueuze-like. A bit of an acidic bite, sort of aspirin-y, a little chardonnay. Not as extreme as others (there are better examples of the style) but quite drinkable.
