Really a beautiful color. Very deep deep golden color. Almost orange. Like a sunset in a glass really...awww.
WOW. That nose is grande. Huge granny smith apples. Very tart tart tart. Get some good funk notes. Nice horsey notes. Also get a nice candied sweetness. Really nice mix between the funk and the candy.
Really nice flavor. Definately get some granny smith apples big time. Not an agressive funk, a kind of nice mellow fruity funk. Very tart yes. Very very tart. Finishes kind of rough. Definately earthy in the finish. But also an interesting something in the finish. Not quite sure what it is. Almost plastic-y. Like I was gnawing on a plastic crate or something. Not quite right I don't think. Maybe that's the enterobacter!! Definately some citrus notes in the finish too. Pungent lemon or grapefruit rind for sure. Really incredibly complex.
Mouthfeel is good, but honestly not dry enough I don't think. It is a touch on the cloying side oddly enough for me. Kind of leaves this slime in my mouth.
Not sure I'll ever be able to give a hardcore gueuze anything higher than a 3 in the drinkability field. Unfortuntely...
