2013 vintage. Extremely complex beer with just the right amount (a lot, but not too much) of funk and sourness. Leather, horse blanket, wild yeast, vinegar, and oak are all present along with some background grape/wine notes. There is some sweetness, not surprisingly for a 5-year-old beer, but it is well-balanced. A treat to drink and I wish I had picked up more than one bottle when I saw this last September.

I got a 2013 batch.

A: Intense orange and hazy with a great with head with great formation and retention;

S:Complex with green apple and grapes, banana and phenolics, citric and leathery;

T: Sour, mildly citric and fruity, green grape lingers, with light bitterness and medium body and carbonation;

M: Mild acidity and grape with a dry end and mild alcoholic feel;

O: Complex on the nose and palate with it mix of green fruit , sour and bitterness, high alcohol profile, makes this beer more than a beverage it is an real experience.

Poured from corked & caged 750mL bottle into a tulip. This is the 2013 vintage.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze and moderate effervescence. Head is two-plus fingers of frothy white foam. Nice!

Smell: brightly tart with just the right amount of sweetness; somewhat earthy and citrusy in character, like lemongrass or something. I really like it.

Taste: quite earthy in character with a tartness that is not as bright as the aroma. It's also quite dry, which really adds a champagne-like character here; it's very good indeed.

Mouthfeel: light body with with a lot of carbonation and a big if ephemeral creaminess. Good!

Overall: this beer really appeals to me. Tart enough, earthy, and dry; the alcohol barely even registers. This beer is dangerous.

Vintage 2013 (Best before 13/04/2036, so about 5 years old)

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that quickly fizzle down to a decent cap

S: Farmhouse, acetic tartness, a bit of fruitiness, and some oak. Easy and straight-forward

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the acetic tartness and then goes into some of the oaky and fruity notes including apple and pear. Farmhouse notes show up towards the end and throw some hay and other funk in there as well. Finishes with lingering oak, farmhouse, and very light tartness

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. On the drier side

O: A very well done gueuze that is certainly on of the classics. Certainly one of the more oaky and dry ones out there. Worth checking out

This is fantastic. This is real palate opener. It's a little funky, earthy, soury, and different but in a good way. It's not too challenging of a drink like some people would think it is. Try it out if you can get your hands on a bottle. Another good thing about these style of beers is that they hold up for a while without going rancid. Cheers! A-
