2016 marked cage. Cork and caged 75cl bottle. As a note, as we were removing the cage, the entire top lip of the bottle blew off with the cork still in it. It was a huge surprise and I would recommend some care with all of these De Cam bottles. In any case, pour was a slightly murky yellow body with a slight orange hue, two finger white head (but we did have to pour through a strainer, so I doubt this was a typical pour for this beer), just enough retention and not much lacing. Smell is wet hay, a bit of oak, light acetic acidity, light lemon, a bit of sweet bread. Pretty nice, although it is on the sweeter side. Flavour is a dry and light acetic acidity, some citrus and lemon, sweet crackeriness and grain, wet hay, mild oak. This one is on the sweeter side, not unlike Drie Fonteinen OG's. It's not dry like Boon, and doesn't have quite the funkiness of Cantillon. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, soft on carbonation, not too acidic or bitter, easy drinker, although it seems to lack a little bit of complexity to it.

2016 cork and cage. Consumed 5/2017.

White head. Dark golden color.

A very nice gueuze. Wet horse blanket and wet oak. Funky with a lemon citrus. Apple skins. Light tartness. Great drinkability. Always a treat!

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.
