4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is interesting with a lot of spicy, herbal notes. Some light over ripe stone fruit notes. Light oak notes. A bit of a weird aroma, which may be oxidation?
Pours a hazy, golden copper color with a small, white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with moderately strong acidity. Nice mineral notes. Lots of herbal, earthy notes with a light spiciness. Some bitterness with light oak notes. Some moderate over ripe stone fruit notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice beer but I was expecting more from Lente. It hasnít aged well and is a bit oxidized. Finishes flat and has a lot of stone fruit.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle. Bottled 3/19/2010.Unknown original review date.
Gusher. Overflowed after popping the cork. Nice white head and good retention. Hazy orange body.
Unbelievable aroma. Lemongrass, hay, and a huge funk. Fresh and light. Immense aroma, even if itís as delicate as a gueuze aroma gets.
Taste mimics the smell, but more acidic than funky. Lemongrass and hay. A touch sweet in the finish. Good barnyard in the background, but it isnít the headliner.
Overly carbonated. So carbonated that the bubbles are more noticeable than the beer at points. Makes it light and effervescent, but I feel like it distracts from the flavors.
Incredible flavors, especially coming in the nose. Light and refreshing. Maybe not the intensity I expected and usually get from a 3F gueuze, but excellent nonetheless.

A slightly darker golden color full of bubbles. A ton of interesting flavors. Extremely drinkable. Would be fantastic to sip on for a hot day. Not very sour but still acidic feel. Great stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange color with solid foam ring. The smell resembles a buttery flower field with a little of old feet. The taste is sour, but not too aggressive. Light funkiness, but father decent. The aftertaste is dry and sour.

With Toni from Erzbierschof and anstei. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is very distinct, flowery, citrusy. Taste is citrusy, perfumed. Some rubber, some old bread. Simply good. Full body. A fantastic blend, and yes, spring. Iím blown away by what Toni is offering tonight.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drakeís 10k courtesy of travlr. Medium amber, low level acidic aroma, lots of horseblanket. Flavor matched. Pretty far to the mellow horseblanket side of things as opposed to the bracing acidity of a Cantillon, but a very nice beer indeed. Somehow had a level of subtlety and sophistication you wouldnít find in the style.
