Hazy golden, huge head, spotty lacing. Aroma is dominated by cork, light musty/dusty character, faint lemon. Flavor much the same, dominated by cork, very tart through the finish. Brightens it up a bit, but a bit let down, overall.

Bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015. provided by bart. thanks again! poured an beautiful hazy dark golden colour with a medium seized white head. the smell has a awesome blended mixture of citrus, lemon zest, funk, barnyard, wet wood, and some spiced yeast, wich could be from the girardin. itís sounds so easy. but this was by far the best smelling lambic that has made it into my nose! taste has again that real citrussy character, with old dusty grains, wood, tart funk, some spiced peppery yeast. that typical "horseblanket" kind of feeling, just so so good blended and age to perfection. smooth as silk with a perfect acid sour finish. just the perfect geuze! so so lovely

Zer0 (1175) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle shared @ De Heeren Van Liederkerke. Pours hazy, a bit darker than golden with a large white head. Well the head is just insane. Never seen anything like it. Looks like a hilly landscape, sticks to the glass like glue and stays just forever. Aroma is deep funk, citrusy, wood, hay, dank, barnyard, cobwebs. Quite acidic but not overly. Works really well with the other flavours. Very dry and tart. Really well balanced. Medium body with silky soft mouthfeel. Quite some carbonation but not too much. Absolutely gorgeous.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 Bottle at Heeren van Liederkercke. Slight hazy nice orange golden color with big beautiful fluffy creamy white head. Looks great. Massive funk, soft wood, light green walnuts, herbs, dusty cellar, sour grapes. I could go on and on, very complex aromas. Taste is over medium sour with light bitterness. A bit under medium bodied with lovely champagne like carbonation. Just really great classic gueuze style, massive.

The bar in which I rate all gueuzes was set by this fantastic gueuze. Iíve never experienced a gueuze that had such a fascinating cider quality! This is the only whale gueuze that is worth searching for. You will not be disappointed.

Bottle at Ryanís. Huge courtesy of Ryan! Damn Dad! Pours a light Amber body with huge thick creamy white head. Aroma is rich earthy yeast, aged goida cheese, sour fruit, old dust and basement. Incredibly subtle but nearly perfect; notes of aged cheese, sour fruit, tart character, dusty basement - essentially a perfect blend of gueuze. Incredible.

Bottle @ Heeren Liederkerke. Pours a slight hazy orange amber beer with a big creamy white head on top. Aroma is great, grainy, hay, barnyard, cheese, dank cellar funk, codwebs. Flavor is very smooth and tart. Medium sour funk going on here, great dry, woody presences in there as well and an awesome balance. Acetate Aftertaste is medium tart, dry finish. Great stuff.

ineedbeer (1312) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Aroma is really nice with great herbal and earthy notes. Moderate barnyard funk with medium light tropical and some fruit. Moderate citrus and light oak. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a faint, forced, thin, rocky head. Flavor has fairly strong acidity. Rather herbal, earthy character. Faint tropical fruit and citrus notes. Light stone fruit character. Light oak with really nice barnyard notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with great barnyard funk and nice fruit notes. Bottle could have used more carbonation though to make this beer really pop.
