UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 October 28th 2012: Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David Paquet, huge thanks David! Unclear orange with a medium diminishing white head that leave’s a small forever lasting white head and superb lacing. Beautiful beer! Aroma is lemony with herbal/floral notes and mild Gueuze aroma characteristics. Taste is incredibly smooth and wonderfully complex. Fruits (lemon, grapefruit, apple, pineapple), wood, barnyard and leather. Dry and citric mouthfeel. Well carbonated. Except for the aroma that could have been a little more complex (probably mellowed with age though), there’s no flaws in this beer. Perfect balance, amazing complexity and great drinkability . It’s the nearest thing from a perfect Gueuze (and beer) that I’ve drank so far. The saddest things about this beer is that it would be the perfect "go to" gueuze but it’s rarer than Pope’s sh**. Updated: Bottle (750 ml). Tasted again at De Heeren van Liedekercke on April 20th 2014 just before Roze and Heerengueuze. My rating stay the same as the one up here. It was a little less bright and fresh (probably because of the bottle variation more than the age because there was no other sign of age in this one), but still one of the most amazing gueuze ever made. Near perfection.

750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 5/18/2014. Hazy orange body. Medium white head. Nice collar. Aroma of citrus zest and a hefty funk. Very woody. White pepper. Oh my. Taste has orange and lemon citrus. Some wheat. A little bit of malt. Pepper. Funky. Sourness builds into the finish. Unbelievably good. Perfect sourness. Perfect body. Well carbonated. I am stunned. This is as good as a gueuze gets.

From Bottle @fonefan gueuze tasting Ulfborg, thanks to fonefan - june 24th 2016. Pours a hazy orangy with a big, off white head. Aroma has - oh jeez - lots of similarities with girardin: Smooth, balanced, moldy, light tartness, green apples, stone fruits, grapes. Incredibly balanced, complex acidity, cheesy. Taste is tart, smooth, balanced dry, sour. Wow! High carbonation and that fluffy old gueuze-body. Yes! Almost as good as Crianza Helena!
