Killed it! This is probably my favorite gueuze ever. Best of the 4 in my opinion. Amazing peppery lemon flavor with a heavy tartness that is welcomed. The nose is more of the same funky musty elements with some lemon and a great black pepper quality. I could drink gallons of this nectar. LOVE IT.

Compared with the Hertst - Bottles shared by Armand, Michael & Lydie. Summer pours cloudy light orange with a good steady head. Very subtle funk nose, nice oaky touches. Silky smooth body, full mouthfeel, incredible balance. Taste is fine malts, soft funk and a lot of soft oak. Herfst is a tad darker in colout and more vibrant in the nose; some more citrus and fruity esters. A bit more carbonation makes this excellent lambic more lively and fresh, but ever so marvelous.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle shared generously by 3/4. A gusher. The pungent, cheesy aroma fills the air. The lively carbonation ends up working well in its favor, as the head on this baby lasts forever! The beer is hazy, dark orange. The aroma has a deep undercurrent of spice like bay leaf. Also grapefruit juice and pith. Is highly carbonated, but not in an annoying way. Is refreshing, light, and juicy. The herbal spice in the aroma does not fully carry over into the flavors, which are more along the lines of pure pith bitterness. The layers of complexity are outstanding. This is a beer that just keeps giving.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Bottle. Aroma has notes of lemon, sour fruits, leather, barnyard funk, wood and pepper. Very nice. Medium hazy orange amber hue with a large off-white head that stuck around and left good lace. Flavor is medium sweet, heavy sour and tart. Palate is medium bodied, overly acidic and lively carbonated. Overall a wonderful Gueuze. Complex nose, gorgeous appearance and uber sour. Loved it.

Bottle from Dan - thanks! Let’s start 2012 with a world class gueuze. Bottle was stored for weeks in the fridge prior to opening and there was no gushing. Pours a hazy, light rust orange that looks fiery in direct light. Fluffy white head that leaves a bit of foamy lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma is dry must up front followed by focused cheese rind, some off-funk odors, lemon, and a clean wheat or grain component. I do not get any bright fruit notes. Taste is sharp cheese rind, tight funk, lemon, some must, perhaps some soft oak, a touch of bitterness, and a very interesting lingering finish of sharp tart, light wheat, and a sharp prick of very dry sour that reminds me of brett although I doubt it is. Mouthfeel is sharp and precise and the lively carbonation is perfect. This is an amazing gueuze but it does not present with the rich fullness of balance both in aroma and taste of the Lente. Thank you again Armand.
