Bottle shared by me at jrallen’s.

Pours a sunny orange/yellow color, white head, thin collar, spotty lace. Nose is lots of orange peel citrus, funky barnyard, nice level of fruity tartness in there as well. Not very sharp at any point, very smooth and well-blended. Flavor is funky cheese, excellent tartness, citrus peel, slight pucker from the sourness, barnyard musk. Light body, light carbonation, dry finish.

This beer is simply outstanding and amazingly blended. As good or better then anything coming from 3F or Cantillon for sure. Not sure if I’ll be able to try this again, being that it’s so limited, but man I would jump at the chance to try more of this. Simply, a winner.

750 mL bottle. Hazy orange. No head. Smells citrusy and cheesy. Grape must fruitiness. Tastes pretty tart. Strong oak. Lemon. Orange citrus. Medium low carbonation. Sourness builds. Becomes pretty sour in the finish and a little bit of cheese comes through as it warms. This is really nice, but not the most complex gueuze I’ve had. Maybe masked my sourness.

vtafro (5907) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Smells like your typical lambic gueze, nice tart tones. Flavors are sour and complex and rival the cantillon and drie Fonteinen.

Luk_ (238) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Clear orange with almost no head. Aroma is very fruity especially for a gueuze this age. I get apricots among other tropical fruits and funky cheese, Taste is very sour, mainly lactic citric, with some citrus peel, cheese and lemon acidity. Low carb and bone dry. Very intense gueuze. With appropriate carbonation, it could have been a worldclass gueuze.

Bottle shared by Tommy and Julien, thank you guys for the epic tasting you put together! Pours a hazy golden with no head escept for a really small rim that leaves no lacing. Nose is of funky blue cheese, green apples and other tart fruits. Taste is moderately tart with lemon and hay. Body is light to medium, carbonation low and mouthfeel juicy. Acidity level is just perfect for my palate. Pretty serious stuff right here! I thoroughly enjoyed it!
