hazy orange colour, moderate sized off-white head, which disappears fully and quite quickly; aroma of tart, lemony notes, tannins, barnyard, wheat, some vinegar and unripe grapefruit; taste is the same with some bitterness; really great gueuze

Gli odori la fanno da padrone: stantio, leggero ossidato, limone, pelle del salame, lumaca e tanto altro. Grande gueuze.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 2014-2015 vintage in 37.5cl bottle.
AROMA: Musty maybe even dank or dusty, tropical fruit, parmesan cheese. Extremely pleasant.
APPEARANCE: Deep amber, translucent, Alive with carbonation. Such a lovely thing. Large white foamy head which after a while dissapates a lot but remains somewhat present along with some residual carbonation.
TASTE: Magnificent, tropical fruits, sour, bubbly, oily, refreshing. Quenching.
PALATE: Long lasting, acidic, quenching, moreish.
OVERALL: A real triumph. I was lucky enough to meet Pierre Tilquin at IMBC and he was a very humble person who was just happy his beer was liked. This really is the real deal.

Rating #1487 - 12.03.2015 - Pregaming for Sour & Funk Fest. Bottle from Wine & Beyond Windemere (now HorizonKyle beat beerblast to the punch on this round, must have been a fluke, hahaha) Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of apricot jelly, lemon juice, and Brett. Quite tart and juicy with a pronounced sourness - lingering acidity into the finish. Phenomenal.

2011 versie. Koperkleurig bier met wit schuim dat vlug weg is. Zurige houtgeur. De smaak is zurig, citrus. Een malse zachte geuze.
