UPDATED: MAY 23, 2020 vintage 2016
Appearance: Pours clear golden. Small pour in order to keep the beer cool, so no description of head and lacing.
Ar Lemon, grapefruit, brie cheese, funk, wheat and wood, with hints of earth.
Taste: Citric wheaty vinegary flavour with hints of funk and wood. Crispy acidity. Dry tart vinegary finish.
8/ Light bodied, smooth, slight oily texture, soft carbonated.
Overall: Vintage is very similar to Cuvee Armand & Gaston, sometimes I can't distinguish them in blind tasting.
Vintage很像Armand & Gaston，有时候在盲品中区分不出这两者。
15/20 EerieDrinks (1047) - Malmï¿½, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2020
UPDATED: APR 13, 2020 3 finger white head. Dissipates quickly.
Very hazy, light to deep orange coloured beer.
Aroma of green apple, light round funk, soaked earthy wood, ever so slight hint of dark chocolate and a very soft mushroom (patchouli-like) hint.
Taste of mostly the first three notes but just blended so well. Lipstick hints and lots of minerals on the backend.
Mouthfeel is unoffensive. The extra years did this well because it's so round and mellow. High acidity still but it fades quickly to a really pleasant level. Dry. Medium-high to high carbonation. Medium-high pitty bitterness. Remains pretty drinkable.
Overall: The original is very good if you want something more bitey but this is definitely more decadent. You would think 4 years would do even more but it's very nice nonetheless. 3 years later and Gueuze's are still not a favorite style of mine but I can appreciate it a lot.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2020 37.5cl bottle at home, from Winter Package, blue nightlights 2014. Appearance: almost clear golden with a fairly big white head. Aroma: leather, green apple, white grapes, woody, some kiwi, funky, even a trace of vanilla. Taste: medium bodied, low bitterness and medium acidity. Notes of green apple, white grapes, leather, some horseblanket and latex, funk, some kiwi and lemon like brett. Palate: medium bodied, slick texture and lively carbonation. Bone dry finish. Overall: At first I thought I would never be able to taste the differences between OG and OGV, but there are some clear differences. It is much milder and 'round' in flavor. Less acidic and more sweet and fruit forward. fillepolo (2811) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2020
