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.

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

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Has a hazy orange colour with a surprisingly big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of horse, rowanberries, apple cider vinegar, citrus and barnyard. Sour flavour filled with more berries, especially gooseberries, wheat and forest floor. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A balanced, rich and wonderful gueuze!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle sample courtesy of "hannont". Colour...very cloudy golden straw with an overflowing white head. Nose...quite lemony but with a fair amount of barnyard and horse blanket, too. Imagine squeezing a lemon on a pile of hay covered horse pucky, and there you have it! Palate...whoa Nelly!! Did I just eat alum?! Man, this is an intensely tart beast! Ok. Now that the initial shock is over, the lemon comes back and makes a zesty appearance. There’s still funk and an array of sweet spice, all if which works very well together.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Soild, strong barnyard: baby manure, spice, and strained fruit. Medium copper color, 2-3 cm head, great lace. Rich and sharp fruit attacks the palate right away, blends and moderates very slowly. Tart and crisp. Great, refreshing stuff. Tingling on the tongue for long afterwards. Excellent.
