3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Hazy gold with white head. There is a pleasing citrus note in the aroma and this follows into the beer, nicely tart and palate cleansing, hints of bitterness, good restrained acidity. Really very pleasant indeed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Lemony sourness with some grass and spice. Cloudy orange with a rich beige head. Compared to the fall, very light and drinkable. Almost too light, it goes quick.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at my East Croydon tasting. It pours hazy copper, with a thick foamy white head and high carbonation. The nose is grass, floral, farmyard, sweet strawberry, green apple and lemon. The taste is tart lemon, Granny Smith apple, lemon sherbet, white currant, tart white grape, strawberry sweetness, floral and grass. It is complex, yet is still subtle and delicate. The balance is really as good as it gets, with lots of tart, juicy fruit upfront which slowly fade out towards the finish. Fresh, crisp and utterly drinkable. Wow. Truly a spectacular gueuze.
