An extraordinary bottle shared by emaineiacman at SMBDC meet-up in May, brought back from Belgium. One of the most exquisite & unusual blends of 8 of Belgium's best lambic brewers. Dry, woody, great aroma of mustiness, deep orangey color, long-lasting tart finish, respectable head. Has been on my life-list for awhile, and can say it is very much worth the effort to procure if gueuze is your passion.

To be honest the only thing I do not look like about this gueuze is it's looks.
I opened this bottle this weekend so all the gueuzes inside were about 5 years old, There was a bgf "fond" in it as well. It tasted great and I woulb buy it again in any time!

In my opinion an honest sour one with a dry touch to it. It ends really smooth and fresh and leaves you wanting for more.

Pours gold with a slight haze. Champagne like head off the first pour, but settles pretty quickly.

Musty aroma. Nice helping of horse blanker, should be a funk fest. Rounded out with expected tart apple.

Sour apple right up front. Tartness gradually increases until it's rounded out by nice grain and just a touch of vanilla. Horse blanket throughout lets you know exactly what this is.

Carbonation really brings out the flavours on this one, alive in the mouth. Nice quenching finish.

I was excited for this one, and it didn't let me down. As other reviewers have noted, age helps this round out.
