Had this on-cask at the Fountainhead Anniversary night.

A: Goldeny orange haze. Looks like what an alcoholic apricot nectar would be in a big soapy bath.

S: The smell lends itself to fermented fruits at the bottom of a sterile garbage can bag. It's cloyingly sweet and sour smelling with some hints of oak and vanilla.

T: All those smells hit your tongue at the same time for an overwhelming bombardment of sour, fruit, and vanilla.

M: The first sip will pucker your lips and make your cheeks rosey.

O: This was one of my few gueze experiences, but it was a great one. I had this in bottle format not 3 nights later and it was still an amazing brew.

This is my perfect Gueuze. The yeast profile in this is beer great. Its funky. Its like sheep and hay in a bottle. Its smells like the farmland of Belgium. It takes you there with your nose and tongue. its perfectly lactic and sour; great light fruit flavors; sour apple, white grapes...similar to a fine white wine or champagne. Its a perfect palette cleanser with something rich (beef tenderloin, hooks 15 year cheddar, and this are my deathbed meal) or just great to drink with anything. anytime. in excess...if I could...mmm. if not this, then Giradin 1882 or boon marriage parfait...mmm

Served in a Maredsous glass. Ice cold.
Barely fizzy. Golden, sunlit peach color.
Concrete and new steel aromas combine with dried leaves, snow, juniper, currants and green tobacco.
There is an industrious, disciplined display of flavor, attacking with notes of Meyer lemon concentrate and pot-purri-like fresh herbs. Brazilian rubber, fermented apples and mace occur within the expansive mid-palate. Very sour. Raw, as nature intended it. Bred for greatness.
Now my sinuses are clear. I wonder how the Horseradish eaters among us might like this great beer?
