Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled in October 2015. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen gueuze glass.
Appearance: A very slightly hazy golden orange colour with a one finger off white head that had decent retention and eventually settled to a nice thin cap, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Funky, damp wood, green apple, orange peel, lemon, lime, and a touch herbal.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, green apple, orange peel, lemon zest, funky, wet wood, musty.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable and easy to drink, with good funk. Would’ve loved to try this fresh.
