2010 vintage. All the right aromas and flavors but very underwhelming- should be about thee times more intense.

375ml C&C bottle. Cork leaves the bottle with a whimpy pop.

best before date of 4.13.2032

poured into SP wine stem.

Appearance: opaque gold body with suspended white floaties ( I poured in the sediment on the bottom of the bottle). 2 full fingers of white head that leaves sticky moderate lacing all the glass. Head has some staying power and drops down to a thick cap.

Smell: Lemon and lime citrus combo. Mild funk and minerally notes. Fruity nose also.

Taste: light tartness and light funk. Moderate sweet maltiness with is kind of odd for this style. Lemon and lime are the only contibutors to the tart flavors. The malt sweetness is bready and it make a candied orange with the lemon and lime tartness. Very mild musty and earthy funk. White grape and pear notes in the finish. Hint of cough syrup and fruity yeast.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate almost high levels of carbonation. Creamy carbonation and it has a juicy mouthfeel. It also has a slightly dry kick to the finish.

Overall: This gueuze has alot of the traditional flavors and smell going on, but it is too sweet for my tastes per this beer style of gueuze. It is interesting how the bready sweet malts make that lemon lime flavor add a slight orange flavor to the beer. I want more sourness and funk with less sweetness from my gueuze. It was a good beer to try once and it makes you appreciate how well that Drie Fontienen, Cantillion, and Brouwerij Girardin brew and/or blend thier respective gueuze.

Best before 2034. Cork stomped easily.
Golden yellow color with a huge head with medium retention.
Bold sour funky aroma with notes of lemon, vinegar, lots of horse mantle, leather and band-aid.
Flavor is more tamed and elegant, notes of apple vinegar, funky sourness lime, yeast, green wine, mild herbal bitterness, must, some lactic and pears. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Light body with a carbonation that deceives it for border medium.
Very good Geuze, it has a nice balance between sweet and sour and great complexity. Quite pleasant to drink. Should please a wide range of beer drinkers.
