Bottle, best before 2025. Poured into Cantillon gueze glass.
Cork popped out violently, almost flew out of my hand.
Poured lightly hazy gold/amber with orange highlights.
Head is fizzy, almost soda-like. but sticks around and leaves a thin lace on top. Carbonation is lively, with bubbles cascading up the whole time.
Smell is citrusy, with a sharp lemon like aroma and a sour funk. Lightly fruity, candied peaches and apricots.
Flavor is lightly sweet, with more of an apricot flavor, and just a light acidity and funkiness. Sourness hits the back of the tongue but is not overpowering at all. Sweet lemons and orange flavors come through more as I sip. Some soft wheat malt flavors shine through as well.
Incredibly easy to drink for a lambic. The sourness and funkiness is so well balanced with the fruitiness of this beer.

375ml bottle served in a flute glass.
A: Pours a yellow to orange color. A little bit cloudy. Lots of carbonation coming from the bottom. Forms a big and very bubbled (alive) white head. Fizzy with a great retention but only few lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Smell is quite grainy and fruity. Characteristic Lambic character. Notes of pale fruits like white grapes, apples and peaches. Vinegar. Sour with a metallic and slightly flowery hops in the end
T: Strong notes of fruits and pale malts in upfront. White grapes, apples and peaches. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of Lambic yeasts. In overall, a quite dry taste. Sour and vinegar but not overwhelming. Quite smooth, I would say. Lovely Gueuze
M: Light and carbonated body. Malty, fruity and mainly metallic aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Great Gueuze. Lambic fans will really enjoy it as I did...
