750ml bottle from Belgium. 2007 Vintage. Into a Rodenbach Grand Cru Tulip. 27 Dec 2007 bottling.

A: A beautiful hazy apricot in color with a dense white head that foams up to about an inch, quickly receding to a cap of foam. Big gobs of lacing are left behind on the edge of the glass. Beautiful beer.

S: Funky and incredibly sour. I love Armand's blends, there are just so many notes in the nose. Barnyard funk, strong sour notes, lemons, cherries, and funk, but also there are these crazy notes of creosote, and aromatic heavy crude oil. It sounds like the absolute strangest mix of things, but it smells so wonderful that I want to bury my nose in it all night.

T: Follows the nose quite nicely, huge sour note with a ton of funk. Strong notes of lemons, but there are also some notes of peaches and apricots in here, quite fruity actually. Surprisingly enough there is even a touch of sweetness that finds its way into the last lingering seconds before I swallow. Absolutely incredible stuff.

M: Slightly thick with enough carbonation to break it up. Dry and puckering. Spot on.

O: Absolutely wonderful, hands down the best Gueuze that I have ever had. I really have nothing else to say about it. Simply perfect.
