Had this at Hill Farmstead last week. Amazing funk notes on this. Super perfect gueuze, The funk is awesome and sour. Looks great. Pours perfect. The taste is even better than the smell. This was the 2013 LPG.

Sparkling gold, off-white collar.

Holy funk! It's a challenging, confusing nose--I'm getting a patch of weeds, acetic olive brine, sherry vinegar, and cedar.

Taste is oak and tannin funk, white grape skin, grapefruit rind, brine, and black peppercorn. Pungent hoppiness seems to develop as it warms, and maybe a little kerosene.

Med body, semi-dry .

Not a gueuze guy, I rate this below Lou Pepe's average.
But if ever dryness could coexist with full flavor, it was in this 2013 vintage.
Never will I pay $40 again for a 1/2 bottle of beer... albeit a bomber I shared. But Lou Pepe is on the "1001" list and this bottle pushed me over the top of my 502 goal... so I guess the value has been rationalized.
