2010-2011 bottle

Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Nice retention for the style.

The nose comes off very fruity(veering into orange fruit territory with peach and tangerine), acidic and musty.

Very drinkable level of tartness. Citric and fruit heavy on the flavor. The funky flavors are hanging out more at the finish.

The carbonation lends itself to giving it a fuller feel than some other gueuze I've had. Very nice and dry. Spot on.

These guys know how to blend.

Best before 15/02/2021

Thanks Steve and Walt

A) Hazy, cloudy gold. A bit watery at the stem. Pale. Suspended particles. Thin, scattered head retention with a few spots of lace. Wispy head.

S) Tame aroma but clean and pleasant. Grassy with floral notions; a bit pollen-like in that respect. Juicy notes of fruits which add a soft sweetness. Deeper down are funky tones. Swirling finds puffs of dust and yeast. More of a residual funk.

T) The nose is so unassuming but this is has a tart, juicy punch that hits quick and is tempered by a moderate amount of dusty, wooden funk. Excellent balance of tart, funky and musty.

M) Light-medium feel. Carbonation is lower and it has more of a creamy feel. Dry finish with residual mustiness and fruit.

D) Really nice with superb balance and drinkability. Complex enough to keep things interesting and easy enough to be a daily drinker. My favorite thus far.
