Corked and caged bottle shared by Travlr. Wow! Thanks! Pours a hazed yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma is fruity funky, dough, green apples. Taste is softly fruity sour. Very nicely balanced. The sourness is about perfect here. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very good beer.

Corked bottle, n. 0572/1400, vintage 2009, 4 years old, courtesy of Jane (fonefan)
It opens with a loud pop; the bottle is a slow gusher; it pours a bright copper-gold color, with turbolent persistent perlage sustaining a medium sized head.
The aroma is clean and penetrating, pungent; acidic and fruity, with strong character of pink grapefruit, followed by dry cellar and cobwebs; finally some notes of cheese rind.
It’s well carbonated, the mouthfeel is therefore partially smooth; very dry, but with a good body structure, supported by a good malt flavor, plenty of pink grapefruit, correct bitterness, and a moderately astringent final.
Balanced and elegant. One of the best Gueuze I had in a long time.

750mL bottle, sent from xscottypx (thanks a lot, Scott!), pours a hazy dark golden copper with a small white head. Nose brings out medium barnyard funk, some wet cardboard, and some wood - very lovely aromatics. Flavour matches such exquisiteness, bringing out medium funky qualities, wood, some fairly prominent saltiness, some lemon, and both low acidity and low vinegary-ness. Extremely complex and highly drinkable. The unusual saltiness is worked in very well. Funky, woody and salty. Wonderful gueuze.

jbeatty (1069) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle, tasted 09/01/2013. Pours hazy orange, thin white head, fades to slight haze on the surface, soapy ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is vanilla, soft grapefruit and lemon citrus, light hay, fruity funk, light must and damp wood. Taste is tart citrus, apricot and peach, mild funk. Medium body, dry. Really pleasant, quite nice, can see this one getting better with time.

Bottle shared by t0rino. Pour is amber with minimal head. Some funk on the nose, not much sour but enjoyable. Wish it had been funkier.

[Bottle, thanks for sharing t0rin0!] Pours amber with almost no head. Slight funkiness present in both the aroma and taste. Not as sour as expected, but still pleasant. Lots of white peach in the taste. Thin mouthfeel, with a long, leathery, funky finish. Pretty decent beer that I was happy to get a chance to try. Thanks again, t0rin0!

Bottle. Orange pour. A little flat on the carbonation. Nice sour apple, not too sour. Grape, fruity, delicious!
