COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spontaneous fermented beer has been aged in Hungarian oak barrels and appears with a light amber color with almost no head.

The aroma is huge and very vinous. A clear impression of oxidized apples is the first thing that hits you, which made us think of heavy old fashioned British apple ciders. The aroma also reveals the wooden notes from the barrels along with some burned toffee and spices like Star anise.

It has a very heavy acidic profile at first, one that quickly slides into a smooth kind of sweetness. We taste green apples, carambola and very young green grapes. It has a certain lactic acidic touch and a creamy dry finish that lasts forever and bares the green impressions through.

Some mild creamy blue cheese on roasted rye bread would work great due to both the lactic and acidity impressions in this beer.

Bottle @ lbutiken copenhagen. Light copper coloured. High carbonation. Very citrus with a bit of old leaves. Sourness is quite overwhelming, but shows potential. With some aging it might become more balanced.

Lovely velvet hay/farmhouse funk, solid gueze, balanced towards medium-high lactic, acidic acid, vinous oak, citrus and rotten fruit.

Grzesiek79 (4222) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Vintage 2014. Half champagne bottle. Piwo ma niewielka pianke, herbaciano-miedziana barwe oczywiscie metna. zapach kiszonej kapusty i octu. W smaku bardzo, bardzo kwasne, niemal ze octowe, dochodzi przyjemna chmielnosc i drewniane wrazenia z beczek po winach wegierskich, ciekawe czy to byly Tokaje. Slodycz tu byla znikoma, w zasadzie jej nawet nie stwierdzam. Lambick ten pozostawia na podniebieniu pewne cechy Bretonskich i Normandzkich farmerskiech cydrow, ale takich naprawde w starym stylu. Podsumowujac jest to pierwsze udane Gueuze od Mikkellera.

Foffern (1803) - Bod, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle at home. 2014 vintage. Has a slightly hazy orange amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, tea, spices, apricots, rowan berries, oak, forest floor and barn yard. Sour flavor of vinegar, lime and barn yard but the ending is sweeter with apricots and sugared tea. Has slick and sparkly mouth feel, medium bodied, and light bitterness. A both acidic and sweet gueuze. Well-balanced.

The_Osprey (7729) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond as Mikkeller HUES, 5%, 2014 vintage. Pours a brilliant amber orange, sparkling with a diminishing beige head. Aroma is plastic, polished leather, varnish, baby food, and apricot. Touch acetic. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is red grape, lime, plum, plastic, soured green apple. Not much acidity or tartness but a bit tannic and dry. Light sherry. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Not as vibrant or as complex as the gueuzes that come out of Belgium, but nice in its own right.
