big bottle into a tulip just for me. cork pops with a bang and it starts as a bit of a gusher. bottled on Jan 18, 2013. purchased about a year later and kept at cellar conditions.

A: pours a hazed orange hue. not cloudy, just some haze. head is fizzy and bright white. big. good retention and lacing. thick tufts.

S: a very horse-blanket filled aroma. really musty. such an inviting aroma. I can hear the micro organisms beckoning me to take a sip. its a little one dimensional in the sense that

T: earthy, musty, tart. acidic, but really not too intense. just enough to remain very drinkable and pleasant. there is a touch of sweetness right in the middle. honey like almost. however it is fleeting as the acidity takes back over again. no hop flavor or bitterness that I can detect. I am starting to get more oaky wood flavors as I continue to drink.

M: a vivacious carbonization. light to medium bodied brew.

D: overall a really fantastic gueuze. I can see why this is considered a benchmark for the style. that very classic, big barn yard aroma and flavor is all over this one and I like it.
