4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 1999 bottling. Cloudy orange-amber. Cheesy, tangy gueuze aroma...yeah, this is going to be good. Rich, earthy, tart depths of passion fruit, lemon, hay and leather. Huge complexity - a gueuze that shows me new things. At this stage of aging, a classic.
Belle Vue Fond Gueuze 1988. Muddy tan/light brown colour. Light funk, cheese and phenols on the nose. Very earthy palate. Flat. Complex and tart with a long finish. This is extra dry and deliciously dusty. 2-7-8-5-18 = 4.0

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
(750ml Bottle, 1999 vintage) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a spare ring of white bubbles. A complex gueuze aroma of grapefruit, lemon, vinegar, apple, earthiness, musty, and white grapes. The flavor smacks you in the face with the intensity of the tartness that after once taste makes your taste buds stand up for attention like basic training solders for their drill sergeant. The tartness lingers even after several minutes in between sips allowing you to savor the magical experience endured. An absolutely fantastic brew at a unbelievable tasting that I will certainly not forget.
