Bottle poured into a 3F stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013. Thanks rfraga7!

Pour is a deep orange, with two fingers of off white, frothy head. Head retains for a while, and leaves some nice lacing. Smell is incredible, and easily the highlight of this beer - bright, juicy tropical fruits (mango, papaya), some lemony bite, and wrapped up in a clean, musty funk (cobwebs, basement, some hay). Taste is impressive, but not as much so as the nose. More tropical fruits that are slightly subdued. A nice lemony bite, and a delicious mineral funk. Finish develops this floral, grassy, perfume aspect that is enjoyable, but mildly offputting. Quite drinkable, with a medium level of sourness. Finish is dry. A top notch geuze that was a pleasure to have, but falls short of Blauw but quite a bit.

Transferring some old reviews over to BA. Bottle provided generously by Sean. Thank you for the extremely rare tick man.

A-Pours a cloudy pale orange in color with a half fingers worth of white head.

S-Nose is classic 3F gueuze with a touch of sweetness. It’s funky as usual, must and cobweb.

T-Flavor isn’t in your face funk like a vintage gueuze or an aged regular Oude gueuze, it is a touch sweeter and slightly perfume-like? Still delicious don’t get me wrong.

M-Mouthfeel is light and spritzy, with a moderate finish.

O-We sampled this side by side with blauw, and in my person opinion blauw was a far superior beer. Not to say that this isn’t a phenomenal gueuze, but blauw was just flat out better. Thank you Sean for the opportunity at these beers. It was truly a treat to try them side by side.
