mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
1999 Vintage. 750mL bottle at DHVL, pours a cloudy night orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of tart dry apricot skins, and classic barnyard funk -- wonderful aromatics. Flavour brings out tart apricots, some grape skins, and medium funk. Moderate funky quality for a gueuze with a very higher than average acidity. Finishes fairly tart, with the funky quality no less pronounced and huge acidity. No sign of the age at 14 years old. Wonderful stuff, though not my favourite style of gueuze with all the sourness and intense acidity. Actually becomes overburdeningly acidic the more you drink, forcing me to lower the rating a bit. Still, quality stuff.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
This is the 1989 vintage. Pours a hazed golden orange color with a small white head. A definite cork aroma, but not really detrimental. Quite lactic with a pleasant funky quality. Lots of grass and green apple skins, musty as well. Lactic tartness is evident, but there is a mild vinegar note. Surprising amounts of oak with some mild cork flavors. Quite a bit of lemon, grass, and apple. Overall, a nice (old) gueuze.
