De Cam oude Geuze '13 Vintage consumed on 160708

Pours a clear amber-orange color with a bubbly, medium head, which turns out to be unusual stable.

Smells of a profound funkiness, entangled into dried apple peel and dusty, old oak. Has a mineralic stony quality with wet mushrooms and a flowery grassiness to it. White bread and sour lemon pulp compliment both to the pungent funk in this, establishing an awesome, aromaful nose, which is hard to compare to any of the other Lambic.

Has a lively but fitting carbonation and an utmost refreshing light body, revealing tons of flavor nuances. This creates an ever developing taste, which focusses throughout on its taste defining sourness.

Tastes of moldy earth, old apple peel, wet stones and a juicy lemony whiff. The lemon turns more flavorful after this initial stage, opening up the palate to a well dosed sourness, defining the flavors without getting close to numbing the tongue. Apple gets a tad sweeter during the finish with an aqueous softness, wrapped up by crisp lemon peel.

Drinks very nice, full of fruit supported funk with a bright, soft finish, soothing the sourness without loosing any character. Moldy, matured white wine characteristics get combined with crisp lemon and create an inciting potential.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Vintage 2015, with a shelf life on the cork and bottle listed as very lengthy. Excellent pop off the cork when opening.

Dark orange body, almost sort of rusted brown in color making for a pretty appearance. The clarity is real nice, enough to see lots of fast carbonation all over, practically racing at full tilt through the body, but a touch of cloudiness obscures a bit. Head creation is minimal, but a good half finger stay puck that is getting populated with a nice white top.

Aroma has excellent funk and fruit esters. Senses of light apricot and peach qualities, big on stone fruit. An almost sweet tangerine aroma comes off the glass as well, just touching into citrus zest. A real juiced quality that dominates but make no mistake about the earth is apparent in the background. Very inviting bouquet.

Palate hits the mark real nicely. Sharp front but with less carbonation play and mineral sting. Earthy first flavors that quickly wash away in a big bowl of stone fruit like flavore. Peaches and apricots fill the mid palate with a nice earthy quality. Aftertaste brings some of that tangerine sweetness which is so subtle and really goes great with the pepper qualities and funk on the finish.

A real nice delicious gueuze. Great stuff.
