Very interesting. Almost mango...not as lemon sour as most gueuze I have had, and I have had many. But that is not to say it was not good. It was very enjoyable. Thicker palate than most dryer gueuze but still very good. I real like thus one and it is readily available.

Bottle 37.5cl @ The Capital, Leuven. Bottled 05.2013 Sourish aroma, wood, natural, apple, orange. Pours orange, no head, no sparkling, a bit like soda. Nicely sour, apple, wood, grapes, lemon. No carbo, light bitter, waterish. But lovely sourness.

Amazing lambic! Pale blond, nose very complex, sour, oak. Taste very complex again, sour oak and wild notes. Uou!

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; BIG thanks to Dogbones for this one!). Bottled on Feb. 23, 2006. Looks decent; no real carbonation though. A cloudy robust orange. Smells good; funky and cheesy. Tastes like it smells, but less robust due to lack of carbonation. Gotta give this a 2 on the palate because I get no carbonation whatsoever (and I like carbonation in my lambics). Worth trying as long as you don’t have to give up the farm to get it. I can imagine this would be a 4.0 or higher for me if properly carbonated.

Hay and sour apples on the nose. Beautiful golden liquid and a quickly dissipating ivory head. Granny Smith apple on the first taste barnyard and white wine, or white grapes. Dry and delicious. Great beer

CarlJonas (228) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 (Bottled 2006) Slightly hazy orange liquid, no head. Elegantly oaked sour aroma but with notes of stable and gunpowder. Medium sour taste, followed by lots of gunpowder that gives way to a long-lasting blood grapefruit finish. Low carbonation, slightly astringent, medium rich mouthfeel. Smooth is perhaps not the first word that comes to mind when you?re talking lambic and geuze, but in this case it somehow feels appropriate. 20150321: Same vintage. No carbonation left at all. Simpler, less gunpowder and oak and more grapefruit. Still good but you should probably drink it.as soon as possible if you have a bottle from 2006.

mikeyo1 (417) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
bottle @ home, 2006 edition. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aromas are quite mild sour for a lamic, barnyard, citrus, leather, wet hay, wood, wheat and yeast. Slight notes of vanilla. Crisp and light bodied. Flavor is sour and dry, initially of lemon, brett, sour green apples, wheat, unripe red currants and oak. An interesting gun powder note lingers along with lemon peel and blood orange for a long time in the aftertaste. Sour medium bitter finish.

Habanero (3254) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, caramel, citrus and vinegar. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and flat carb. An excellent Lambic.

Mortlach (1290) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2014
05/04/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (750ml bottle). Dorata acida, appena torbida, schiuma modesta poco persistente. Al naso sentori di stalla, cantina, note di cuoio, citriche, intensa e (relativamente) pulita. In bocca è acida decisa, citrica, un po’ più ruvida e spessa di altre 3F, nel finale una leggera nota acetica. Corpo medio-leggero, quasi piatta. 3 Fonteinen è sempre una garanzia.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av äpple, jäst, vita vinbär, vått gräs, trä. Torr och frisk. Saknar kolsyra men smakerna är fina.
