2014 vintage.

Look : One finger white head, hazy orange body.

Smell : Sharp lemon, orange, mild funk, burnt rubber.

Taste : Same as above, but with wheat, tangerine, very mild stone fruit, a note of apple. Very complex for a gueuze.

Feel : Medium body and carbonation, tart but not sour, balanced finish, medium acidity.

Season16/17 bottle dated 05 April 17. Blend #28. Blended with lambics aged on 6 different barrels, originating from wort of 9 different brews. Wow. Pouring from a 12.7 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. This beer pours out an amazing shade of medium orange while being bright around the edges. It formed a thin white crown that disippated quickly. As soon as the cork popped, I smelled the beautiful funk, a dank and musty smell. My wife asked if there was a skunk hit outside, then looked at me with a beer in my hand with a devil look. If that gives you any idea. Putting my nose into it, it adds a fruity tartness. The taste comes in with an almost burnt and funky fruit element. It's almost like burnt resin/piney mixing with fruit like tart peach. I love that burnt aspect and it makes you think for a second of smokiness. The mouthfeel is tart and dry. This is an amazing treat. Such a complex brew. My favorite I've had in quite a while.

I picked up this bottle while camping in Stowe, VT at Hill Farmstead. It was delicious. I couldn't see it since my wife and I were drinking out of tin coffee cups. It was your typical funky yeasty Belgian lambic, but the flavor profile was incredibly complex. I have no idea how to describe it other than the flavors changed over time like waves passing over the tongue, each as enjoyable as the last. We both loved it and highly recommend it.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Semi cloudy amber with medium bubbles and white head rising thin roughly quarter of an inch.

Smell: Yeasty scent with deep lemon feel hitting the nostrils.

Taste: Sour brew, might be the only sour tasting brew I love. Palate cleansing lemon and grapefruit and deep notes of yeast.

Mouth: Medium body. Sticky brew with medium to heavy body.

Overall: Good brew, took me by surprise and nice to have a balanced beer in between tastings. Strong taste without hitting you in the head. Salud!

Slightly skunked bottle bought in Glasgow. Reminds me a lot of gueuze tilquin -- a bit too hoppy for my tastes, especially after two years in the bottle. Nice level of tartness. Very pricey

72/100
