yourilevesque (1065) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Millésime 2013 dégusté en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Ce lambic fut servi en accompagnement d’un magnifique souper d’agneau braisé dans un liquide à base de vin blanc, de romarin d’ail confit, de romarin et d’un fond d’agneau précieusement conservé suite à une lente cuisson en papillote. C’était magnifique. La bière elle-même est très très mousseuse, tant dans le verre que dans l’estomac. Vapeurs sèches, très boisées, peu acétiques mais quelque peu sulfureuses titillent mes narines palpitantes. En bouche le liquide me paraît sec bien que boisé à souhait. Peu agressif, court et terminant sa course sur une belle amertume en finale. Un joli substitut au vin blanc pour ce plat!

superspak (4224) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2015
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; 2015 vintage, best before 10/31/2034. Bottle #14416. Pours lightly cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, lime, green apple, cherry, pear, white grape, hay, straw, grass, leather, oak, pepper, cracker, light white wine vinegar, musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, oak barrel, and light pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, green apple, cherry, pear, white grape, hay, straw, grass, leather, oak, pepper, cracker, light white wine vinegar, musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness and light-moderate tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, pepper, hay, straw, grass, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funk/spicy yeast, oak barrel, and light pale malt flavors; with a great yeast spice/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very dry finish from carbonation. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly acidic/prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible gueuze style. All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, oak barrel and light pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. Very classic tasting and well rounded gueuze in complexity and balance. A highly enjoyable offering.

stoutnick (818) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2015
2009 vintage bottle. Light cream golden pour. Aroma is sherbert and tangy sorbet. Taste is sweet lemon citrus with a almost no pucker - almost more like dessert. Good stuff but not crazy sour but certainly delicious.
