bottled on 5 Jan 2012

A: pours a clear and bright gold with a half finger head that is dense and retains well into a duvel snifter
S: smells of bretty barnyard with some clean sourness and oak
T: starts off quite tart and sour apple but fades to some funk and oak. brett is somewhat prominent but not overbearing. aftertaste is kind of medicinal and band aidy with a bit of lingering sourness
M: lighter side of medium in the mouth with soft but prominent carb and a drying finish
O: an absolutely fantastic Geuze. good sourness, decent complexity and the wild fermentation has done a number on this beer.

375ml.. Teku glass.

A: Pours a deep golden color with a ring of pure white, persistent head--medium to large sized bubbles. Champagne-like effervescence. Good clarity.

S: Acidic sour, some sort of sweet fruity candy, grapefruit, wheat, earth and funk and grass, mineral notes. Vanilla and oak come out in droves as it warms.

T: Sour apple, citrus, oak as it warms, finishing dry and puckering. Sour is light to moderate.

M: Light and fizzy. Medium body and light carbonation.

O: An excellent, readily available gueuze. The level of sourness really hits the spot, but the barrel character is very light.

750ml bottled on April 27 2010. Served in a Russian River stemmed glass

Appearance: Golden yellow color with less than a finger of soapy white head, which dissipated quickly to a thin collar. Slightly hazy in the glass with quite a bit of visible carbonation

Smell: Lemon, vinegar, oak, musty basement, barnyard, grass, green apple.

Taste: Acidic lemon juice, lemon rind, quite a bit of barnyard funk, white wine grape, a bit of lactic sourness in the finish/aftertaste. Overall sourness is medium.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel. Carbonation is bordering on high, but works well for the style. Finishes dry.

Overall: Really good gueuze. This is one of the classics for a reason.
