COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"For Akkurats (Stockholm/Sweden) fifteenth anniversary, Jean Van Roy has made a very special Gueuze. It is a blend of one, two, and three year old lambic and was bottled in April of 2005. It has then been fermented and matured for five years in the deep caveaus of Cantillon. 15 years is the minimum age for driving a moped in Sweden, which is why we are choosing the name, Gueuze Vélomoteur."

UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Bottle at Akkurat. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Mellow barnyard and funk bouquet. Tangy with wonderful sour citrus highlights. Extremely complex with funk, barnyard, horse blanket, and lemon zest notes. Fantastic body and mouthfeel. Absolutely fantastic.

Hazy, dull hay. 1.5+ (bubbly white) fingernail head on medium pour. Smells of lemon zest, old musty hay, barnyard funk, and touch of unripe fruit. Crisp and refreshing from the start. Distinct citrus sharpness is present all throughout - not overpowering, but balanced by barnyard must, touch of oak, and dry dustiness. Very refreshing!

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden with a medium sized, off-white bead. The aroma is mega funky with notes of horse blanket, mouldy basement and barnyard brett up front alongside clear lacto notes. Also boat loads of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), elder, sweaty cheese, phenols (smoked meat) and subtle spices. Touch of pineapple. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily acidic and tiny bitter with notes of brett, lacto, citrus, cheese, wheat, white bread and phenols. The mouthfeel is soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Citric, funky and wheaty finish. Light to medium bodied.

ansalon (4078) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat. Pours a somewhat muddy peach with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, farmhouse, soil, elderflower, slight metallic notes, and oaky mustiness. Taste is funk, citrus, sour peach, farmhouse, honey, musky notes and towards the end slight mushroom, and umami notes almost. Mouthfeel is somewhat sprightly with medium carbonation and a dry sparkling finish. Fantastic!

[4/24/15] Bottle at Akkurat in Stockholm. 2005 bottle. Hazy golden with a nice stable white head. Lovely big funky aroma with some oak, sweat, cobwebs, leather, barnyard and fruits. Sour flavor, funky, with oak, a bit of lemon, fruitiness and a juicy finish. Astringent bone dry finish. Medium-bodied. Wonderful stuff. Refreshing.
