Bottle acquired from the Trillium folks, shared very generously with me by James at CBC Boston on 9/23/17. To say I was surprised to see this would be a massive understatement! Thanks!!thomashall (1606) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Typical deep, golden-bronze-copper, good clarity with a large but steadily falling, off-white head.
Well-developed lambic character shows soft lactic acid and mild, fruity Brett mix with light wood, no toast of course, and moderate honey and biscuit-like malt/wheat behind it. Quite funky, though very even and mellow with no aggressive characteristics. No tea noted in the nose, but just a fantastic gueuze character nonetheless.
In the mouth you do get the tea, I think it's even there if you're not looking for it, though it certainly could be mistaken for spices/herbs of some other sort. Anyhow, it's light and doesn't interrupt (or for that matter, really augment) the lambic base, which itself is very flavorful, even, low on sourness and leaving lime, cherry, light oak, sulfur, horse and mild lactic acidity lingering. Tight, engaging carbonation, of course, with a malty/wheaty, supple texture and strong attenuation. I'd much prefer they go a bit light on the tea, as they did, then the opposite. Bravo.
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 On tap at Scheras for Zwanze day. Golden pour. Gueze aroma, little tea but not much. Taste follows, subtle and pretty good but not much going on. Decent. anders37 (27907) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2017
