NIce and very interesting. Fine aroma and delicious taste too. Somewhat interesting the aftertaste too there.

Bottle as an intermission during THE Stout Tasting. Cheers to Ken for providing this refreshment! The pour’s deep yellow with a big, pillowy white head. The nose is yellow apples, funky attic, cobweb. Lemon curd and a bit of cheddar. The taste is musty white grapes. Lemon peel. Young, buoyant flavors. Not particularly sour. Spritzy carb, light body. Overall, very tasty. Quite approachable stuff.

Palate cleanser at THE stout tasting - part 1, thanks to Ken. It pours clear golden yellow with a quickly dissipating medium white head. The nose is floral, hay, tartness, funk, lemon, orange and tangerine. The taste is spritzy, sherbet, tart tangerine, grapefruit, orange, lemonade and hay with a dry, tart finish. Medium body, effervescent carbonation and very well balanced. No acidity to speak of and hides alcohol very well indeed. Not particularly complex, but smooth, very drinkable and pretty delicious!

ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle at VANØ Bergen’s Christmas Gathering 2012. Clear orange body, small white head. Nose is citric tones, apple vinegar, stable funk, straw, hints of balsamic and citric lacto-acidic tones. Taste is mild honey and stomach acid-like notes, barnyard funk and hints of green apples and hay. Medium carbonation, thin body. The most impressing feature of this lambic is the fact that it’s very mild in taste, completely masking the rather high ABV; the alcohol is simply nowhere to be found. Otherwise, I think this is pretty generic as far as Belgian geuzes go.

callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Large white head floats on top of a golden-straw body. Spotty lacing left behind after the head slowly crashed. Nose is musty with a bright lemon-citiric focused profiled. Lightly earthy, with some oak, and wet straw. Flavor is similarly bright and is aided by a brilliant, refreshing, zesty, and invigorating mouthfeel. Aggressive, but pleasant carbonation, lingering acidity and a nice, light lactic tartness and a tight dry finish. A nice, different gueuze, that still stays true what makes gueuze awesome.

Hazy golden color; the large head disappears quickly. The aroma is wonderful, cobwebs and dry citrusy fruits, grapefruit, an idea of tropical fruits, and cheese. Highly carbonated, smooth, with strong citrusy flavor, yellow fruit; mild cobwebs; acidity and astringency are moderate, almost mellow.
Huge balance and dynamism.

fonefan (53027) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2012

Bottle 750ml. corked.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, frothy, fair lacing, fully diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty - yeasty, barnyard, leather, tart, sulfur notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and acidic with a long duration, wood, tart, dry, grape - citrus, barnyard, lemon, brett. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery and dry, carbonation is soft to fizzy.

FlacoAlto (4240) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2012
A soft pour, from this incredibly well carbonated beer, produces a four finger thick, pale tan colored head that has the structure of Champagne, somehow it seems to be missing the protein structures usually found in beer, as if they had been here, opening the bottle would have been far more exiting. The beer is an orange tinged, pale amber color that shows a clear, bright gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a significant mustiness to it, lots of woody, sort of mushroom like notes, noticeable urea like notes, sharp, expressive, aromatic acidity that is anchored by the ample lactic notes. There is a backdrop of straw like grain, backed by cracker like maltiness. When it loses much of the carbonation it becomes much less aromatic, though it is still quite enjoyable to ruminate over.

The beer is tart, but not as much as I was expecting, it is quite effervescent, with lots of carbonic acid that also accentuates the tartness here. Musty, funky, musky phenolics lightly perfume each sip of this beer. The grain character is quite soft, with subtle notes of hay, and in combination with the other notes a sort of dried weed like notes. The beer is quite light bodied, not quite watery, but it doesn’t have the slickness that many a Gueuze tends to have; it is quite nice and refreshing though, and would be great on a hot Summer’s day. The tartness here has a nice lemon like character to it, with perhaps a touch of grapefruit.

I like the champagne conditioning touch on this beer, though I wonder if the lack of yeast / sediment has reduced the complexity and body of this beer somehow. Still, this is quite a tasty beer, and certainly the best Lambic I have had from Oude Beersel since the retirement of the original brewer; though it is perhaps not quite at that level, as the Kriek from 2001 I had recently was just phenomenal still.
