Vintage Bottle 1998, Sampled November 2004
Pours a hazy orange color and is topped by frothy pale head. Not as carbonated as I was expecting (I almost thought I had a Lazy Loerick), but it is fairly carbonated. The beer displays a wonderful aroma as I pour this beer into my glass. The nose is full of citrus, a funky woodiness, a light bit of acetic, cat pee, a sharp herbal character, musty cellars, a woody mushroom thing, tart grapefruit, and recently abandoned barnyard. The aroma is of course wonderful, I just can't get enough of a traditional Lambics aroma.

The taste is full of a lemony sourness up front. As this beer crosses my tongue for the first time I note how smooth and soft this is. This has definitely mellowed a bit with age, but there is some sharp notes here as well, a sort of sharply herbal-acidic bite to it. This is definitely quite tasty, though it is missing a bit of complexity, most notably the Brett note is not as strong as it could be, though as it begins to warm up and as I get used to the acidity it becomes much more prevalent. This beer has notes of grapefruit, a certain woodiness, musty leather, wild mushroom, and a back of the mouth coating astringency.

This is certainly tasty, though it does not seem to be quite as tasty as the non-lazy Gueuze. I will definitely have to have a bottle or two more to see what they are like.

This beer was a treat! Thanks to Jon (weeheavysd) for bringing this gem to the SeaofFloydster Tasting on March 28th. I wanted to try this beer just for the kick ass label (I hope you kept the bottle Jon). I believe the cork on this bottle said 1998.

Poured a golden color with surprisingly a half inch of head and great retention.

Wow, this aroma brings me back to that 99' Cantillon Gueuze I had about a month ago, almost that good. Funky rotten fruit, dirty horse, dirty barn stable, and a sharp aroma that sometimes came through as nail polish. A bit of berry. This was one funky beer.

If I didn't like funky beers this one would have made me gag! Rotten citrus fruits, lots of funk, lemon, and medium dry finish and hints of cracker in the end. Low carbonation, most of it was apparent in the end. Seemed to get drier as it warmed up. This beer was a great experience.
