3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl. bottle w/ cork and wire. 1992 vintage. Rated 8.9.2012.
Low carbonation; the cork is removed soundlessly. Clear, deep gold. Funky, intense aroma w/ obvious acidity, cellar notes, and vibrant complexity. Taste is intense and acidic, funky, barnyardy and surprisingly fresh and youthful. A very good gueuze, especially considering its ripe old age.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
1999 vintage bottle No. 03720. Huge thanks to Gabriel (Erzengel) for sharing this gem. Hazy orange with no head but some lacing. Funky aroma of lemon rind, oranges and some woody notes. Flavour is complex, initially sweet but rapidly becoming shockingly sour with elements of white wine vinegar and a pinch of salt. Mouth feel is oily with smooth but modest carbonation and an acidic finish. The best Inbev stable product that I’ve tried to date. A great surprise!
