Pours a pale yellow colour, with a big, creamy head that never fades. Bubbles are coming up all the while. Aroma of grapes, ripened fruits, sherry wine, wood.Medium body, creamy and sour texture. Carbonation is great. Taste of grapes, citrics, fruits, wood, sherry wine. Sour finish.

Label year 2012/2013. Best before 2033. Sampled 07.2016.

A: This poured a hazy gold with a little white head and chunky sediment.
S: It smelled like minerals and tart vinegar, with funky oak and unripe apricot and clove. Very similar to the Mariage Parfait Geuze.
T: It tasted like unripe apricot and grapefruit zest, with funky oak and tart vinegar. It had a clean sour aftertaste.
M: It was thick with lots of carbonation. Full bubbly body.
D: This was a nice sour with bold but delicate scent and taste. The body was solid, with a nice long finish that was good for sipping. Could age a long time. I preferred this to the Mariage Parfait Geuze, but it was still not top tier.

While not my favorite style, this may be one of my favorites in the style.
Rocky head releases the style's earthy stuff. But what makes this my favorite is that it is not too sour and does not reassert its sourness as others usually do. A pleasant sour.

Listed in the "1001" (a deserves to be there), MJ's "Great Beers of Belgium" said it has "a firm body, Seville Orange fruitiness and appetisingly bitter finish."

37cl bottle. Dark orange with a light tan head and visible carbonation. Murky sedimentation at the bottom of the bottle. Sour, with notes of vinegar, barnyard funk, macerated fruit, oak. Refreshing due to its medium-light body and high carbonation.
