phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), - JUL 8, 2012
75cl bottle from 2006. Hazy golden peach flesh colored pour with some small bubbles. Aroma is very sweet. Ripe orange, tangerine and pineapple is prominent in this very fruity lambic. Musty oak, brett notes and barnyard, a surprising vanilla element. Huge horseblanket and funkiness .Grapefruit. Very funky all over, but the lovely fruitiness is most prominent. Taste is similar, though a lot more brett-forward and leathery, a grape-like dry bitterness from the brett in the far back of the mouth. It is tart, but balanced by a good sweetness, and it comes off lighter in tartness than many other geuzes. Very light in carbonation, smooth texture, very nice mouthfeel. Thicker texture than other geuzes, a bit oily. I lile this one a lot.

thellgren (784) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Well, I forgot to rate this two weeks ago. So this is from my memory. Small champagne bottle from Uba ja Humal, Tallin. Apperance is like lambic: golden, cloudy and still. No head, no sparkling. This is no ordinary gueuze. Taste is like oude lambic, maybe a bit softer. Dry but not so dry as some other lambics I have tasted, or maybe I’ve grown accustomed to the taste.

Enno101 (73) - - JUL 18, 2016
Aroma: the Brett on this is so aromatic. Pears, green apple, peach and subtle funk. Appearance: copper, no head. Taste: follows the nose with a lovely balanced tartness. Palate: very little carbonation, just the way a lambics should be. Overall: one of the best. So well balanced. Can’t wait to try the gold blend of this.
