4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle dated 02/2007. I’ve been waiting to give this one a shot, hope its funky. beautiful orange color with a good head at first, then scarce bubbles. The smell is real nice, candy, fruit, peaches, a little basement. Nice and sour, juicy like apples and pears. It feels like very tiny bubbles in my mouth but not very many of them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 oz. bottle, bottled Nov. 30, 2005. Pours a clear golden orange with a big fizzy white head, moderate retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is musty and funky. I have no vocabulary to really describe this style at all, so that’s as good as it will ever get, however I do like it a lot. Flavor is tart and sharp, with some more funk and must. A dry and fairly abrupt finish, which surprised me. Very drinkable sipper, and overall a little less intense than others I’ve tried in this style, but good stuff just the same.

Bottle, pours bright yellow with a tall white head. Smells sour and funky. Flavors are very sour, more so than any other I have had. Ends with a lingering dry sour note. This is good.

Dégusté le 12 mars 2007 avec french tickler.
Drank in a stem glass. Poor a couldy caramel color with a small off-white head. Aromas of crab apples, my oid humid basement... i can honestly say that it smells like my freakin’ gym bag. This has to be the ultimate gueuze. Ultimate sourness, acid beyons beleife.... Not to drink ifyou have bad ulcers, unless you have a roll of tums ready. Taste is basically the same as the aromas added cranberiies.

Couldn’t find anyone who would share it with me (my wife for sure wouldn’t), so I finally opened it. Aroma of sour and tart and wood. Taste is of apple. Lots of earthly flavors mixed in. Excellent.

Bottle from Capones. Vintage 2005. Pours out a cloudy light golden/straw color with a moderate slightly off white head. Sour, vinous aroma with some tart fruits. Taste is complex and well balanced sour funkiness goes with some tart apple, citrus and some earthy notes. Well done.

Feb 2nd, 2007 bottle. Hazy golden pour. Thought about saving this to crush with carythedude, but it seems like he crushed one without me. So screw him. Funky, sour aroma. A bit citrus, a bit of hay, and maybe some cheese? Flavor is sour and oakey, lots of tart fruits. Pretty awesome.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle from BOTW. Bottled Feb 28 2004, consumed Dec 31st 2008. Almost 5 years old. The cork comes loose with a loud pop and the pour is a muddy gold with a big pillowy head of white lace and cream. Aroma is sour as expected with some nice citrus. Flavor is sour, but balanced and not overwhelming. There is some funkiness and a very odd touch of what can only be described as vanilla? Very strange, but nice. A fantastic way to end the year.

Crushed with Jakebra. Dadbra called it mink piss. I think its a little better than that. Old man mustiness and sour fruitiness. So much fun to give a gueuze to someone who hasnt tried one yet and watch their face.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 37 5 cl bottle dated 10 04 2004. Cloudy straw colored, small white head. Aroma of barnyard animals. Big dry sour flavor with must and grapefruit. Nicely complex.
750 ml bottle dated December 1997, no label, consumed on 19 December 2009. More animals in the aroma. Much more dry and complex, longer finish. An amazing brew. Bumps taste & aroma up a notch.
750 ml bottle labeled 1999, consumed April 2010. Still dry and dusty, less so than the 1997. Very tasty, makes me really look forward to trying the Millennium.
