4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 vintage picked up at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. I was surprised to see a few of these 750ís sitting on the shelve. If nobody else wants them, I would be happy to dispose of them. Sampled in a Piraat tulip. The beer pours a light yellow-orange/peach in color with about a finger and a half worth of frothy white head. Nose is a beautiful melange of lemon, apricot, must, horse blanket, and some urine. Flavor is lemon rind, peach, must, oak, some faint bitterness, and is still moderately sweet. Once the funk takes over a bit more, the sweetness will disappear, but this blend is still a little young so it needs to sit awhile. Spritzy carbonation, almost overcarbonated honestly, gentle acidity, medium bodied, and a long finish. This has served as my favorite standard gueuze for awhile now. It is the perfect balance between bright lactic acidity and funk. Cant wait to let these 750ís sit in a dark corner of the cellar for a couple years.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy golden color with no head, just a few big bubbles of foam when you swirl it. Aroma is really funky with nice hay and and other farmhouse notes. Itís quite clean and lemony, not overly funky on the aroma. Taste starts sour up-front with lemon and other fermented fruits, nice farmhouse funk but not cloying at all, actually itís quite refreshing. Light body, really dry with good carbonation. A really well made, true to style gueuze. Nice farmhouse funk but also easy to drink.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, Travis, and Doug. Aroma is straight funk, barnyard, dust, horse blanket, a beauty. Appearance is golden amber, white head, hazy. Taste is funk, a perfectly balanced amount of tart, barnyard, horse blanket, good lord. Mouthfeel is medium body, crisp light carbonation, ridiculously funky aftertaste. Overall, this is wonderful.

Glowing golden body, grey head. Apple sourness, bready, delicate. Yum. Strong sourness, fruity aftertaste. Plucky ending. Great stuff, top quality. You have to dig string sourness though. (375ml bottle from Dekoninck)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Hazy orange appearance with a white head. Aroma of rustic yeast, barnyard funk, oak, earth and hints of herbal spice. Similar flavor, dry, tart, rustic and woody with a light crisp feel and a mild sour finish. This is good, but I was slightly underwhelmed on this occasion.

Ljusgul och lätt grumlig. Vin känsla med surhet. Lite funkig och någon smak jag inte gillar. Inte min stil
