Yes, well balanced and moreish Gueuze…

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2013. Pale yellow, bottle fermented. Lovely barnyardy nose with soft funk, soft hayish malts, some apple seeds. Dry light, but still somewhat soft mouthfeel, long pale malty apple seedy finish. Excellent product, which comes as no surprise. Though the initial whiffs had a lot of the barnyardy/horse blanket that I love, this turned into a more of a apple seedy / sour pear- sort of gueuze. But super nice nontheless.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle (2011 blend vintage) pours cloudy pale orange with some floaties and small head. Nose is super barny funk, horseshit, hay, wood, dirt basement floor, peach, citrus, lemon. Taste is equally as complex and holds all the elemwnts of the nose, and combines strong earthy layered funk with a ripe juicy citrus and stonefruit complexion. Finishes dry with juicy tart fruit, nicely balanced acidity and in your face funk. Great stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bouteille. 2011 vintage. Bootlegger’s. Robe orange cuivré, trouble, timide mousse blanche. Nez vif sur de belles notes fruitées de raisin frais et de pomme enrichie d’une odeur franche de liege et de levure. La bouche est doucement fruitée , sèche et peu acide pour une gueuze avec de jolies notes boisées et minérales. La finale est sèche, légèrement florale et mentholée. Un assemblage d’une belle finesse.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Edmunds Oast. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. This is seriously one of the biggest noses one a Geuze I’ve ever smelled, huge skunky, hay, blue cheese, sweaty aroma with lemon peels and tart citrus. Flavor is deliciously funk forward and complex with layers of yeast character and earth with tart citrus peels. Dry sour finish. SO FUCKING GOOD.

(backlog) 2011 Bottle at DHL. Orange pour with tan head. Aroma has nice funk and tart tones similar to a cantillon gueze, nice funky tartness and leather. Tartness, oak and unfortunately lacks a little focus in flavor.
