Bottle 375ml. Clear golden pour with decent white head. Aroma is (too) light barnyard and leather, hay but mostly green apples. Light tartness and wood, sweet apples and leaf. Nice carbonation. Lacks authenticity.but still enjoyable. A shadow of the Black label.

Deep orange colour, fairly dense ring of white head, some lace. Smell is of cheese, quite funky, a bit of blasmaic and wine, quite acidic witha bit of lemon to it as well. Taste is funky with a sour/balsamic flavour, tart apple skins, lemon with a dry acidity, malt flavours with a dry acidity. Medium carbonation, medium bodied. A fairly nice gueuze, the nose is a bit off putting initially but overall it's quite drinkable.

Bottle shared by Pino, 750ml into a tulip. 2012 vintage.

Hazy reddish brown, voluminous white head. Great lace and light retention. Nose of old cheese, woody, earthy, malty vinegar and white wine. Taste of tart apple juice, lemons, dark bread, malty and although still cheesy, is less so than the nose. Denser and maltier than I had anticipated, tartness is medium. Cheesier than I would've liked, but still interesting to try.

375ml bottle into Cantillon gueuze tumbler. Cork says REF BX 2013. Who knows.

A: Pours a clear citrus amber with a finger of fuzzy off-white head that faded into a thick soft looking film. Streaks of lace were left down the glass.
S: Fruits and funk, but not that typical earthy barnyard funk. This smells very different than the black label; this funk is more fecal and fruity, like fermented fruit mixed with rotten fruit. I love me some funk, but to be honest this doesn’t smell great. Smells like vomit frankly.
T: More fermented fruits, hints of stomach acid, sweet candied sugar or caramel, musty oxidization, dry oak, earth and earthy spice, pepper faded hops and apple juice. Sour candy finish is pretty tame, and the sweet fruity aftertaste is reminiscent of prunes, plumes, figs, and honey.
M: Airy, fluffy carbonation, medium body, slick and frothy mouthfeel.
O: Definitely not my favorite, and a disappointment compared to black label. Drinkable, but not pleasant.
