Bucketboy for the win! Thank you Joe!

Light golden body with a small white collar. Mineral funk aroma, fresh rain falling. Wonderful scents. The flavor follows suit. Gentle acetic character. Medium-full on the palate. Puckering in the high cheek bones. This is fantastic.

750 mL bottle. Long time want. Hazy orange. No head. Smells citrusy and cheesy. Grape must fruitiness. Tastes pretty tart. Strong oak. Lemon. Orange citrus. Medium low carbonation. Sourness builds. Becomes pretty sour in the finish and a little bit of cheese comes through as it warms. This is really nice, but not the most complex gueuze I've had. Maybe masked my sourness.

Bottle shared in January of 2015. Thanks Dylan!

I will be short in saying this, I've been lucky to have a lot of good beer and good belgian beer in my brief time in the beer world. I haven't had the Don Q's & Loerik's, but out of the gueuzes I've had, Eszett still remains at the top for the best.

Big thanks to Joe(bucketboy) for bringing this one to the table.

Poured a copper rusty color with a small pillow of white head.

Nose was lemon, wood, horse blanket with a light funkiness

Taste was citric, wood with a cheese funk which is much stronger in taste than nose. wet dog, horse blanket must quality

mouthfeel was smooth. More carbonation in appearance than tounge

Overall, if you dont consider this a whale now, their will be no question in a couple years. Very happy to have been able to try, and thanks Joe for letting me keep the empty, its a really cool bottle to display

A: White head, little lacing. fades quick and doesn't show much carbonation . amber in color, very hazy.

S: Funky cheese, citrus, sour green apples. Hints of floral notes at the end. Light oak presence. Smells great.

T: Tons of citrus and loads of funk. Lots of sourness in the form of green apple, but a nice balance of funky cheese like flavor. Lemon zest, earthy. Great taste. Stays tart through to the finish and touches of oak on the end. Tons going on in here and the flavors are great. A wonderful blend.

M: light and crisp...better than I expected. not much carbonation, but whats there plays well on the tongue and helps make the flavors pop. Nice and smooth all the way through.

O: Wish there were more than 130 bottles of this. Would love to have one every night. Fantastic beer...was fortunate to get to try this fresh and look forward to saving another bottle to see how it ages.

Bottled shared by Josh at our Dave tasting 1/12/13. 4oz. pour into a Cantillon glass. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a light white head with little retention. Beer is a slightly cloudy peach orange. Thin legs but little lace. Pretty average for the style.

Nose is rancid cheese, horse blanket, barnyard, lemon rind, wet wood and tart peaches. Really aromatic and funky.

Peach, orange, lemon, hay, wet wood. Tart but soft with mild acidity. Cobwebs, wet wood. Finishes lemon tartness with a quick, clean lemon rind aftertaste. Great balance.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Spritzy, dry and puckering in the mouth. Dry finish with a slightly lingering, sticky aftertaste. Very drinkable.

There's been a bit of talk about this beer among big lambic/gueze enthusiasts and it really does live up to the hype. Well crafted in every area, this one doesn't disappoint.
