(2008) Yellow color. Very lively--like champagne. Intense Brett (barnyard) & fruit aroma. Tastes of brett, almost more like a wine than beer. Tart & refreshing--hints of lemon, peach, maybe slight bubblegum. Alcohol about 8%, but not really noticeable due to so many other flavors going on. Yeasty dregs at bottom of bottle. If you haven’t tried it, it’s worth seeking out to find out what lambic is all about.

andrew_drinks (223) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from MOMH, 2011 sticker. Pours clear and bright orange, rocky white head. Tart aroma, layers of yeastiness and funk, some cheese, socks, dung, lemon zest. High carbonation, punchy in the mouth. Flavour is very tart, candided grapefruit, some caramel, oak, blue cheese, lemon. Dry finish. Alcohol doesn’t present itself in the flavour, despite being higher than many other gueuzes.

Amber semitransparent color with good foam head in the right glass. The smell is most temptingly tempting (sour). The taste is indeed sour with a heavier sugary aftertaste. The carbonation is marvelous. Great beer, with some slight problems (alcohol content, sugar content).
