Memorial day weekend brought out a red label 2003 bottle generously shared by Denise. Thanks!

Balanced and delicate. Tamed by age, but even at what... 10 years?... this blend was still fantastic. It was more funk than acid, which was a bit surprising, but welcome. There was a lovely citrus sour & sweet combination going on in the middle, and the funk up front led to a clean finish. Definitely not as cloying as "fresh" Oude Geuze from Drie Fonteinen.

Probably not the most complex brew of the day, but its balance rivaled Lou Pepe Gueuze, and promised good things from aging this style of beer. Happy to try it, thanks again!

375ml bottle consumed at the Bruges Beertje on 4/23/10.

From Notes....

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed orange to almost red with a 1 finger white crown that displays moderate retention and lace.

Smell: Moderate urine soaked hay note.

Taste: Same as nose but a little more straight forward.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with good carbonation.

Drinkability: Makes you want more with each sip due to the slighty dryness.
