3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 7/9/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe in early 2010. Pours hazy orange with an average, fizzy white head that quickly recedes to very thin lace. The nose is really classic, complex gueuze, with plenty of lemon, white wine vinegar, funk, and a touch of popcorn and vanilla oak. The flavor has all of the same qualities as the nose, and is nicely sour, but lacks a bit of the depth and complexity that make up an absolutely top tier gueuze. The body is medium and tannic with average, but stinging carbonation, and a long sour lemon and white wine vinegar finish.

Bottle in Seattle. I gave it to Trevor for his birthday, but he shared it with me on mine! Slightly cloudy orange-yellow. No head. Stunning deep fruit, lots of complex wood, lots of funky white wine yeast. Delicious. Sweet, delicious round tart. So drinkable.

Big, big thanks to Matt for this gem. Orange/copper pour. No head at all. Nose is earthier than the flavor, which is more acidic. Mild citrus rind over dusty barnyard funk. Fuzzy, with a light grapefruit finish. Great balance. The word that comes to mind is "authentic." Love it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from bottle at THT May. Hazy honey golden, thin white head. Grapes, hay, herbs, grassy, rubber, dusty cobwebs, funk. All flavors seem muted, watery. Light sweet, light sour, light bitter, light minerallike saltiness. Medium body, little watery but good flavors. Like this, just less impressive than some of the others, but very enjoyable and sessionable.
