adamjackson (279) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – MAY 31, 2012
Enjoyed this at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Vintage: 1993. Paid 20 Euro for the bottle and split with 4 friends. Served in a Gueuze glass at room temperature.
A – Zero carbonation / hiss on the cork pop. Dark orange appearance and minor cloudiness. SRM of 14.
S – Very little nose left. Mild acidic scent. Big vinegar scent as well.
T – Grapefruit, lemon, limes and apples. Peaches as well. It’s a whole rainbow of fruits. Still a big sour bomb and some dry grape skins taste as well.
M – Still a decent carbonation in the mouth. 15% on the mouth swish. Insanely dry finish and the tast runs away very quickly leaving this gigantic sour bomb.
O – Even still, it’s a rocking great Gueuze and one I’d love to have again.
