2009 Sticker
Cork seemed to have dried out, when I opened the bottle some of the beer was on the inside of the cap, the cork was all wet.

Orange color with a white head that diminishes quite fast (I guess because of the open air cork?)
This is exactly what you want to smell from a Gueuze, huge array of complexity right up your nose, funk, slight acetic acid, lactic acid.
One of the deepest layered flavors I've ever had in a Gueuze, so much going in there but at the same time so mellow!
This bottle was a real treat!

We can see how Cantillon moves up their game with their Lou Pepe series!

Clear orange pour. Nose full of citrus including lemons and oranges. Mouthfeel is not overpowering, with a decent citrus aftertaste. Overall very strong lambic beer.

2010 vintage at Akkurat.

Pours a clear golden orange with thick, soapy foam.

Smell is very tart with notes of lemon, Seville oranges and grapefruit, covering a slight funkiness.

Taste is amazing. Perfect. Superbly balanced acidity and sourness with huge notes of citrus and some funk and hay in the back. So deep and complex it's almost a shame to finish it.

Mouthfeel is thin and effervescent.

Overall, this is like the regular Gueuze on steroids. So deep and complex, but still not overwhelming. A masterpiece.
