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.

750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 5/18/2014. Hazy orange body. Medium white head. Nice collar. Aroma of citrus zest and a hefty funk. Very woody. White pepper. Oh my. Taste has orange and lemon citrus. Some wheat. A little bit of malt. Pepper. Funky. Sourness builds into the finish. Unbelievably good. Perfect sourness. Perfect body. Well carbonated. I am stunned. This is as good as a gueuze gets.

From Bottle @fonefan gueuze tasting Ulfborg, thanks to fonefan - june 24th 2016. Pours a hazy orangy with a big, off white head. Aroma has - oh jeez - lots of similarities with girardin: Smooth, balanced, moldy, light tartness, green apples, stone fruits, grapes. Incredibly balanced, complex acidity, cheesy. Taste is tart, smooth, balanced dry, sour. Wow! High carbonation and that fluffy old gueuze-body. Yes! Almost as good as Crianza Helena!
