What a nose, funk and plastic and yet incredible. Tart, grassy, lemon zest, perfect acidity. Glorious.

750 ml bottled 3/19/2010, poured into an Iris balloon

Appearance: Pours a rusty dark orange color with a finger of an off white head that settles to a thin coating and thickish collar. Body is very hazy, but translucent with some light suspended sediment and a good amount of visible carbonation.

Smell: Barnyard funk, hay, musty basement, oak, cheese, green apple, orange. Hugely funky and aroma was strong enough that if filled the room as soon as the cork was popped.

Taste: Similar to the aroma. Medium/high lemon like acidic sourness but so drinkable at the same time. Lots of barnyard, wet hay, pear, cheesy funk, white grape and some mild oak.

Mouthfeel: Lighter end of medium bodied. Mouthfeel is so soft with medium gentle carbonation. Finishes dry. Absolutely perfect.

Overall: One of, if not the best gueuze I've ever had. The blend of funkiness and fruitiness is excellent. Sourness is there, but still retains amazing drinkability, and the mouthfeel is the best I've ever experienced in a lambic. If you're a gueuze fan, you should absolutely seek this out.
