3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2006 bottle, 05/14/2013. Pours ruddy orange, lighter highlights, flat save for a few bubbles around the ring of the glass which are quickly gone. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit and sour apricot, earthy barnyard component, mild cheese funk, wood. Taste is milder than the aroma, soft lemon and grapefruit, soured malt notes, mild bleu cheese, clean finish. Light body with a bit of texture, drinkable and not very tart. Well made, enjoyable lambic-like brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2006 750ml bottle. A nice cloudy deep orange color with a very fine head, very minor carbonation. The scent has a pleasant funk to it. I noticed apples, apricots, lite wood notes, an earthiness, and a crisp lite lemon aroma. As for flavor it is acidic. I could taste vinegar, tart citrus, yeast, and a slight lemon tea like flavor. The finish is sour, fruity, and crisp. Overall I like this and if one happens to land a bottle enjoy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml caged and corked bottle, 2010 vintage bottled 1 December 2010. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a clear gold color with an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and sour, it smells like funk, lemon, tart apples, wood and some earthy/mustiness. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some hay/grass. The tartness isn’t quite as strong in the flavor as compared to the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I liked this, but maybe I should have aged it longer before drinking it.
