Clear orange tinged golden body with scant white bubbles.

Dirty musty funk with apple and melon fruitiness with a citric edge.

Citrus fruit acidity. Funk even gets a little old cheesy in the aftertaste.

Flat and dry.

I really dig this. Not a big Boon fan but this was great. I feel like their gueuzes could be better based on this sample of lambic.

On tap at Engelbewaarder, Amsterdam.

Slight cloudy dark gold with loose film.
Deep oaky nose, like balsamic white vinegar.
Definite sourness: white grape notes and some must with an acetic bite; but also intricate wood, hints of apricot, light caramel, some grassy notes, a bit of vanilla... the list could go on.
Crisp, round, soft.

Seamless; you don't even real notice the sourness. Almost like a liqueur, with limitless depths, but also sharp and clean. In short, amazing.

Non-beer geek friend quoth: "A delightfully perky little number!" so it's that, too.
