4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
37,5 cl bottle. The labelling is very classy. Nice pop at the opening! Golden hazy pour with quite a thick head but like any gueuze, short lasting. Aroma is funky and zesty lemons, apples, light vinegar. There is a massive gunflint mineral aroma that I have not yet found on any other gueuze (it is not as present in Boon, Cantillon, Lindemans, 3 Fonteinen lambics which are used to make this). It is rather sweet for a gueuze, very round and balanced. Dry and sour finish, but very harmonic. The palate is very full with lots of very thin bubbles. Overall it is highly drinkable and incredibly tasty! I only leave one point just in case I find any beer better than this!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a teku showing lightly filtered dry orange peel with a finger and half of clean white foam.
The nose shows a lot of intense barnyard and bretty funk.
The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Moderate sparkling tartness with a very strong citric forward flavor followed by a slight zesty bitterness on the finish.

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

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
