yes, a perfect beer.
I tried. I find no flaws. Could a sour beer be better? no. different? yes, but not better. equal? possibly. currently my favorite sour.

dense layers of delicate sour , tart, a passing nod to funk - all balanced in a robustly refreshing gueuze.
amazing

a beer worthy of a quest.

bottled Nov 18, 2010
375mL

Opened with a pop as I was unscrewing the wire. Obviously had some time to build up pressure.
A: Bright golden color. Very clear. Huge fluffy head that falls quicker than a souffle.
S: Lemongrass. Extremely citrusy. Funk all in good proportion.
T: Sprightly carbonation and acidity on front of tongue. Delicious. Very little bitterness that I can detect. Maybe a bit of vanilla from the oak, but it's more fruity than anything.
M: Well carbonated, probably because it was bottled well more than a year ago. Bright acidity. Light body but definitely not thin.
O: It just doesn't get much better than this. One of the best gueuzes in the world. Extremely drinkable.
