UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 (corked 330ml bottle) . Drank from a Cantillon tulip... bottle dates 2011-2012
Funky barnyard refreshing complexity . Dryness that cleans your soul and a tart accent that melts your mind... but not the cost interestingly complex or challenging of gueuzes

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Delicately balanced, restrained complexities of white, yellow, orange, and green fruit, creamy barrel, and silky horse blanket
A hazed amber body supports a white frothy head, which falls to a solid ring and thin island
The freshly popped cork smelled incredible, huge bursts of mango and apricot with supporting oak and barn qualities; once in the glass, flavors and aromas of honey, flowers, oak, apricot, mango, pineapple, white grape, kiwi and silky horse blanket roll in on a delicate body presenting a flash of carbonation which proceeds to melt into my tongue; lively sweet and sour layers linger and build into a lemony, honey-floral finish with a touch of oak reappearing late; a bubblegum accent also appears with warmth
12.7oz cork and cage best before 18/01/2022 at 45º, 6oz into 11.7oz Zwiesel Tossa Long Drink (preferred), 6oz into TeKu (presented a sharper lemon quality, creating a less harmonic aroma which was less representative of the flavors)

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 If you want to smell & taste banryard (doh), wild yeast, apricot jam, light oaky, this is your beer. Complex but round & smooth mouthfeel. Utterly balanced. Sweet aftertase (more use of old lambic?) rather than oaky/sour/bitter/funky. Every geuze has a fruit association for me: this is the apricot geuze. Price €5,7/quality ratio: above par. One of my favorite geuzes. Bottle 2011-2012.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is funky with light lemon, light wood, and faint gym sock. Flavor starts with a faint spice followed by lemony tartness and sour funk. Finish is lightly tart and funky with faint woody notes. A bit thin. Not a very complex Gueuze. OK.
