2010 bottle consumed 5/2018

Golden orange color. White head. Active carbonation.

This reminds me a lot of 3f OG. A lot of stone fruit, funk, oak, white wine and grape notes, tannins. Dry and champagne notes with a bit of minerality. Very smooth and complex. Absolutely stunning bottle.

2015 vintage. Oude Gueuze pours a lovely light orange with a half a finger of light white head. It smells fantastic - plenty of funk in the nose, lots of sour and tart. Plenty of yeast and a little bit of sediment in that pour - some light red flecks.

The taste is tremendously sour and tart. When the yeast settles out a bit, the mouth feel is quite light and refreshing, minus the chalky grit of the yeast. As the beer warms and loses a bit of carbonation (strongly carbonated immediately after opening), the beer takes on a bit more of a funky character, with the slightest hint of sweetness. Tart and sour presences still quite notable.

A very fine gueuze. I like that quite a lot.
