4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2006 Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours amber with an off white head that dissipates to a ring. Aroma is stellar - cherries, hay, funk, lemon. Medium bodied with a fine spritzy carbonation. Flavor of pale Belgian wheat malts in the background, with complex flavors of lemon, funk, flower petals, and green apple. Good amount of acidity without going over the top. Sour, acetic finish that is about a 8.0 out of 10 on the mouth puckering scale. I am shocked at how well this is drinking. I am not a fan of cellaring beer, but this is one of the few exceptions. Amazing beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange beer with nice head on top and smallish lacing. Bitter and sour aroma, green apples. Earthy notes. Taste is really sour. Green zesty apples, lemon. A bit bitter but also quite fresh. Surprisingly full body and high carbonation. This has a lot of edge which is missing in the gueuze. Excellent and challenging, but so rewarding.
