Replaced my 05 review with a 2012 review, because 2012 was better. It is what I imagined the perfect gueze would taste like. Seriously. Perfection of beer. 5s across the board, for my 1st time ever.

From a 2012 bottle - A little bit of tart and bitter lemon rind, mineral qualities, and heavy funk that comes across like raw leather. Oak barrel brings a bit of sweetness, balancing the other flavors. The combination of tart, bitter, funk, and oak for this particular beer was great; one of the best beers I've had yet.
