2011 vintage. Deep orange hue, frothy head on initial pour with somewhat sticky lacing. Fizzy. Lemon, citrus aroma with a little cider. Hints of Belgian yeast esters coming through, slight barnyard characteristics. Cider like taste, nice amount of citrus, apples and pear. Slight leathery funk is brought our especially as it warms. Mouthfeel is soft, finishes a little dry. Solid offering, was expecting a little more complexity. Preferred 3F Gueuze to this.

Gold in color with a fingernail of off white. The aroma is of pale grains, light bready notes, oats, and pale wheat. I'm tasting light sourdough to chardonnay breadiness. Pale wheat is also in the taste profile. The mouth is moderately carbonated, crisp, and refreshing.

S: aromas of mild fruity funk, wet wool, over ripe slightly bruised fruit, some berry and a faint hint of honey.

L: hazy peach generating very little head. It has a champagne-like effervescence and initial streams of fast rising bubbles quickly disappear.

T: It starts with a big tart berry lemon attack with traces of apple. The sour flavors are moderate to moderately high, the funk is moderate, the wheat is moderately low with the balance to the tart. There are no enteric, smoky or cigar like flavors. Ii is a touch vinegary. There are no hop flavors or bitterness and no cheesy hop flavors.

F: The body is medium light to light and the carbonation is medium high.

O: This is a very refreshing and flavorful drink.
