look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a hazy dark gold with a large foamy white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of vinegar, lemon peel, and lots of barnyard funk.

T - The beer starts sweet with flavor of green apples. The sweetness fades mid palate and turns into flavors of lemon peel, oak, and lots of barnyard funkiness.

M - Light bodied with heavy carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

O - A very nice Gueuze. Lots of bright crisp flavors. Perfect beer for the warmer months.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding gueuze style! All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

HUGE thanks for Francois for bringing this to a party at JLindros's place. Poured into a Kate the Great snifter. Reviewed from notes. 1991 Vintage. Seriously...1991?!

A - Pours a clear dark golden honey hue with no real head. Incredibly still of course!

S - Aromas of funky barnyard, musty old basement/attic, old lemons and citrus peel. There is some nice subtle tartness but for the most part this just smells old and funky.

T - Taste is the same as the nose pretty much. The stillness works I suppose, with loads of older lemons, light citric tartness, mustiness, funky barnyard, dirty soil. A lot going on here.

M - Mouthfeel is super lightly carbonated, clean.

O - Overall this is just some delicious dirtiness. The cork on this one was half rotten yet it did not really suffer from that corked taste or aroma. Delicious.
