Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,75 bottle, an unique and apparently retired jewel that mortlach shared with me at La Tana pub in Rome-Italy. Grazie! The beer pours a semi-filtered cornish color which is very hard to define (never seen such a unique appearance in any of the beers I have drunken before). The cap is medium-low with gassy big bubbles and a yellow-orange reflex. Fantastic. The nose is complex: wild-red fruits, oak barrel, fruity (peach). Mouth is terrific: a background of round maltiness in a balanced sour drink. Berries, wood! Bravo!

750ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an off white head. Citrus, overall mustiness, barnyard funkiness, some woodiness and brett. Very drinkable and very nice.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Compared with the Hertst - Bottles shared by Armand, Michael & Lydie. Summer pours cloudy light orange with a good steady head. Very subtle funk nose, nice oaky touches. Silky smooth body, full mouthfeel, incredible balance. Taste is fine malts, soft funk and a lot of soft oak. Herfst is a tad darker in colout and more vibrant in the nose; some more citrus and fruity esters. A bit more carbonation makes this excellent lambic more lively and fresh, but ever so marvelous.

This poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was light barn, mineral, earthy, and pitted fruit. Flavor was light acid, asprin, peachey skins, and earth. Good but not amazing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 750ml bottle served in a Tumbler glass.
A: Pours a cloudy orange color forming a huge fizzy, noisy, bubbled white head when poured. Good retention and many lacings left
S: Nose is mainly tart and fruity. White grapes, apples and pears. Lambic yeasts are really noticed
T: Follows the nose, tart, fruity and Gueuze. Caramel malts. In overall, an acid beer. Metallic taste. Upfront is slightly sweet followed by a dry taste and a tart and mild bitter aftertaste
M: Light body. Medium to low carbonation. Tart aftertaste
O: Excellent beer. Delicate Drie Fonteinen style, at the same time, powerful Gueuze specimen. Highly recommended
