4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2007 vintage. 750ml green bottle, corked and capped. Pours hazy a hazy golden shade, white head fizzes itself out quickly, very faint ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Lemony, slightly funky nose. Flavour is tart, lemony, acidic, most importantly pleasantly sour. Some woody like dryness, a crisp finish. Moderate acidity throughout. High carbonation, medium bodied. Fulfills the need for sourness and balances that with drinkability. A fantastic beer for any occasion.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge thanks to errl for sharing this bottle, the last one of the Lou Pepes I needed to try. 2009 vintage, drank alongside the 2007 Lou Pepe Kriek.
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is exactly what I expect from a Cantillon gueuze. I get a lot of funky cheese and feet notes, as well as some yeast and biscuit malt. The flavor is the same. I get some oak and dusty character in addition to the barnyard funk and funky cheese. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lou Pepe beers never disappoint, and the gueuze lived up to everything I thought it would be. A truly world-class beer that all beer lovers should try.

Bottled in February of 2013. 750 mL bottle at Parker’s Pie in Vermont. Remarkable. Pours a cloudy amber with aromas of barnyard funk and fruit. Flavors of fruit, oak and spice are enveloped in tart funk. A beautiful beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Kraddel. Shared during the Homer "welcome to California" tasting. Pours clear butterscotch, small off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma is all Cantillon basement funk, barnyard. Flavor is surprisingly lightly funky, with just a light tartness behind it. Lots of oak. Very dry. Light body, spritzy carbonation. Highly drinkable, but not really complex.

Cloudy gold pour with a single finger white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of sour fruits and a little vinegar. Really nice full mouth. Sour apple, fruit rind, slightly briny. Apple juice creeps in and out. Very easy to drink and super complex.
