Deep golden color. My friend David said this smells like his attic, I’ve never been there but I think I believe it. This is funky, with tons of cobwebs. Slightly sweet, great cobwebs, lemon, stewed apricot, milddew, so leather everywhere. Just so deep and complex. So much complexity. So sour and just wow. Very impressive.

2014 750mL at Grana Padano 2 share on 6/10/17.MarcoDL (5037) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2017
Clear, brassy-blonde with light coppers and plentiful carbonation creating a small, white head.
Smells very Oud Beersel-reminiscent with some definite Boon-like character, as well, though not terribly given-over to green apple, thankfully. Tons of cidery, leathery, lightly cheesey character with fruity Brett and musty cellar lingering nicely. Not too shabby at all! Even a touch of honey-like malt and light cereal/biscuit character from the wheat that helps soften the acidic/musty/cidery elements. Aromatics are pretty high, as well and there’s no flaw or alcohol and no surplus of lactic acid (nor any distinct acetic acid).
Sweet-ish, in the mouth, at least for a gueuze, creating a very soft, malty texture that throws plentiful honey about the palate which is able to balance the dry, leathery, lightly oaky/wooden character of the beer quite easily. Perhaps the relative lack of sourness here highlights the malt, as the beer isn’t too sweet by any means. It’s just only moderately tart at best. Pepper, soft oak, cider and leather linger pleasantly. Very nice mouthfeel and tight, natural carbonation make for a very gentle, mild, but surprisingly "Gueuze"-like experience. I’m impressed and would definitely seek more of TvdB’s sours out.
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of horseblanket, tart, grain and old hop. Taste of horseblanket, tart, grain, oak, mild citrus, green apple and a tart finish. Quite nice, especially for outside the region. jtclockwork (16701) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2017

Bottle - Intense soured grape and farmhouse funk. Clearish orange with a nice beige head. Balsamic, acidic, apple and a bone dry finish. Brilliant nose, but taste is a bit aggressive. Still very nice from a non Belgian.

Outstanding sour from my own home province! The start was a little wry but after the bottle got more empty sweeter notes appeared. A superb lambic, a new greatbrewery in the country.
