Bottle shared by b3shine at RBWG: This was the beer that ended the gathering share and a huge thanks to Beau for sharing. Poured a hazy orange with little head. Aroma is funky herbal, lemon, dusty nose. Taste was similar with woods, herbal, lemon, fruity, funky.

750 mL bottle, drunk 8/13/16.
Clear copper body shows a smidgeon of head with low retention.
Strong acetic notes in the nose give hints of acetone, but itís mostly passing. Highly fruity, suggesting raspberry and apple esters alongside buttery (oak?). No green apple, thankfully, but this still comes off a bit sharp and out-of-balance due to the high proportion of acetic acid here. Could just be the competition at this tasting is so intensely high. No alcohol noted.
In the mouth it fares better. Slightly sweet but with earthy and light vegetal notes of musty, intense cellar funk. A bit flabby, without the creamy, ultra-concentrated carbonation. Again, very strong on the acetic character with lots of acidburn on the end and a very yogurty, cheese rind-like lactic character that puckers the mouth. Very juicy, richly sour stuff.

This beer has improved dramatically since it first came out in 2013. It has a hazy gold color with a dusty and citrusy taste. It is far more balanced and softer now than it was a few years ago. Iím excited to see where this one goes.

This beer was not what I expected after hearing a few people talk about it. The aromas is really the two breweries combined, you got a soft vanilla aroma from Drie Fontainen and some not as calm things from the cantillon lambic. Really interesting, I thought that the beer wold have come together more after this much time. But I guess that itís what makes it so special.

Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Big time thanks to Beau for sharing this. Hazed orange beer with a white head. This beer is pretty nice but the acidity is definitely on the heavy side. A whole lot of lemon juice and green apple. Thereís some cobweb funk, yogurt, and musty oak. Nice fruit character of peach, kiwi, green apple, and pear. Maybe just a hint of sweetness to it and even a touch of bitter fruit skin. Certainly a solid beer, but not the most amazing thing Iíve had.

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine at the RB Best Awards - thanks again, Beau! Nice surprise. Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head. Has a really sour lemony, oaky, herbal flavor, with some minerals and straw, as well. The aroma is sawdust, herbs, pepper, pear, grains, and lime. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a really sour, somewhat dry and barely spritzy mouthfeel. Excellent gueuze.

Bottle at RBWG. Big thanks to Beau for this one! It pours a clear golden color. The aroma is rather cheesy with some good funk and acid. The flavor is very cheesy and wine-like. Funky and extremely sour. No acetic vinegar or hot alcohol notes. A funky, cheesy mouth puckering masterpiece.
