Thanks kmweaver for sharing this 750 ml bottle. This gueze is hazy and burnished gold with champagne-like tight bubbles. Vibrant citrus fruit notes and hints of well-aged cheese in aroma that develop in flavor, along with leather and with dimension of aged balsamic & slightest suggestion of barbecue, yet not muddled. Mouthfeel is subtle on pallet. Complexity refreshed and cycles through with each sip.

Orange color with solid foam ring. The smell resembles a buttery flower field with a little of old feet. The taste is sour, but not too aggressive. Light funkiness, but father decent. The aftertaste is dry and sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drake’s 10k courtesy of travlr. Medium amber, low level acidic aroma, lots of horseblanket. Flavor matched. Pretty far to the mellow horseblanket side of things as opposed to the bracing acidity of a Cantillon, but a very nice beer indeed. Somehow had a level of subtlety and sophistication you wouldn’t find in the style.
