Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, blend°67, season 20/21, bottled on 28th July 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen gueuze glass.
Appearance: A very nice clear dark golden orange colour, with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin cap, while leaving lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Funky, dusty, hay, stone fruit, peach, apricot, orange zest, green apple, with notes of honey.
Taste: Lightly tart, funky, barnyard, damp wood, hay, green apple, citrusy, orange zest, lemon, with light herbal, honey, and stone fruit notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Another interesting and enjoyable variant of Cuvée Armand & Gaston that drinks really easy and one that I could just drink again and again.
