2010 Bottle at home. It pours cloudy golden yellow, with a quickly dissipating off-white head. The nose is farmyard, damp wood, tart lemon, green apple, grape skin, sherbet and spicy yeast. The taste is lemon, grapefruit pith, orange, sherbet, farmyard, restrained sourness, light wood and white grape skin, with a smooth, lightly tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not the most complex (or sour) gueuze, but smooth and approachable. Rasmus40 (22069) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012

Bottle from Delices and Caprices. The usual gueuze appearance, clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sharp and vinous, nice funk, strong grapefruit, bit bread malt. Taste is lovely, grapefruit and lemon and sour at the beginning, goes into touch of fruit, strawberry maybe, and nice flat creamy finish. Very spritzy in the mouth. Very nice.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 Pour is a transparent rusty orange with an off white tight bubbly head. Fairly rindy funk, light yeast and spice, some sweet golden fruits, caramel, metallic acetic note. The funk is there in the taste, a bit dusty and some leathery rind, light phenol, yeasty spice, sweet caramel and golden fruits flitter in with acetic notes in back. The body is light with a soft palate and moderate carbonation. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2011

A: Deep golden body, with a large bubbly head that quickly crashed to a thin skim, a few stray steaks of lacing
S: Bright citric acidity and musty oak. A nice funky character promises good things to come...
T: Those good things aren’t delivered. A pleasant, but muted citric complexion up front is left with nothing in the middle and the lightest bit of funk in the finish. Generally hollow, but pleasant.
M: Ultimately, the problems in the taste are mirrored by the watery, empty mouthfeel in the middle. Not much in the way of acidity or sourness.
O: A mild gueuze that may serve some purpose for someone, but that person isn’t me.
