COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

M82 (277) - Kansas, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Creamy earth and mushrooms, dank socks, and barn wood compliment bright lemony citrus notes with nuances of dried pineapple gradate into peaches and apricots which twist into a fusion of white, green, and red grapes, while herbal-green melon tones appear, glowing through yogurt as the fruit influence sweetens to notions of apples rounding out, all on a silky smooth medium light body with building weight as the restrained carbonation dissipates, creamy sour tones melt into the palate

Controlled sourness, round pronounced complexities, solid intensity

375ml cork and cage bottle code 14-03-2034 L40731 08:36:40 served at 40° and warming split into 11oz longdrink and 16oz Orrefors Beer Taster

375ml Bottle as a Christmas gift:
Strong with sour notes, strong citrus & a few other fruits such as apple & pear. Definitely a sour one with some yeast & tart. It also seems quite acidic with hints of grapes, almost like a white wine on the nose with some spice & further hints of citrus.
Golden to orange with a 1cm, bubbly white head & strong visible carbonation. Head goes fairly quickly though.
Funk & tart to start, a huge amount of citrus with some apple, orange & pear. Quite in your face with white grapes coming through too. Again almost seems like a white wine in places.
Highly carbonated with a strong tang on top of a medium body & a very dry, sour mouthfeel that is crisp too.

Only my second ever gueuze style one but it was quite a nice beer, definitely one that started to grow on me as I worked my way down the glass. Perhaps too sour for my tastes initially but from the half way point on wards it started to go down very easily.

maekchu (2097) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle, 2002 vintage, as "Oud Beersel Oud Gueze Vielle." Thanks to KyotoLefty. Ripe fruity nose, slight oxidation, light raisins. Clear dark straw color. Moderately sweet, even caramel emerges, small sour fruitiness in mid and final. Thin body with tiny astringency. 12 years, and it’s a shame that this one is past its prime.

Bouteille 37,5 cl @Delhaize. {Bouchon novembre 2011} Gueuze offrant un beau bouquet fleuri, fruité et boisé avec une acidité moyenne et bien maîtrisée. En bouche, le corps malté orge+houblon s’estompe assez vite au profit de cet acidité à la fois fruité (raison, pomme) et boisé tout en finesse. C’est là où la Cantillon présente un corps plus biscuitée et moelleux alors que la Beersel est a une plus grande acidité, plus fruitée mais moins maltée, et moins houblonnée. En finale, langue pâteuse laisse une chouette astringence un peu sèche sur la fin.

Big has that fades quickly. First smell is bretty then faint citrus. Bit of haze (I could have poured away from lees better). Bright, lactic w lemon. A hint of bitter.

Orange amber pour with white head and lots of sediment. Aromas of lemon, hay, cough drops, funky. Quite tart and funky with water crackers, lemon cough drops. Herbal. Nice.

sebletitje (6648) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Bouteille de 37.5cl, anno 2011 octobre. Dorée présentant un léger trouble, col blanc fin onctueux. Arôme offre la signature typique de gueuze, côté rustique, de grange, léger grains avec un petit bouquet fleuri. Palais offre également un léger profil de grains offrant ce côté rustique, une certaine douceur s’en dégage, et cela après quasi 3 ans de bouteille. Pointe de funk, léger pétillant, fleuri et sec au palais. Le côté aigrelet reste modéré sans être agressif ni même trop au devant ce qui est un peu dommage. Au final et à tort de vouloir comparer, cette version reste plus douce que une version Tilquin, je le trouve moins raffinée, moins complexe tout en restant agréable mais pas ma préférée des gueuzes.

RickTheRick (366) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Un nuage de mousse se pose sur un liquide doré et légèrement voilé. Le nez est très sulfurique, ce qui est typique au genre. Des traces de cuir et d’écurie sont également notables. En bouche, l’acidité est violente et permet aux saveurs fruitées rappelant un bon vin blanc ou un champagne d’exploser. Superbe bière, un grand classique dans le genre.

Big cork pop, rich head on crisp amber. Light dusty mouthfeel and rich flavour profile. Clean, refreshing, tasty.
