teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2012
75cl bottle. 2011 vintage. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is nice and complex: lemony, strong funkyness with fruitiness and some spiciness. Nice acidic notes with some slight wood. Taste is rich and complex. Strong funkyness again and tartness sorrounded by a sort of yogurt-like sweetness. Huge citrus and lemon peel notes. Grassy notes in the background. Some wood and fruit too. Mostly dry finish. Palate is silky, with good carbonation. This gueuze is the most similar to the supreme Lente in the citrussy/funky profile. Only it appears slighly more acidic than 3F’s. Awsomeness.
