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.

Pours a murky orange with effervescent bubbles around the glass, but devoid of lacing. The aroma is cola, stale hops and vinegar

Ysok02 (1007) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2016
Très belle robe dorée, reflets ambrés, pas de mousse. Nez typé sur des notes de lambic, un coté balsamique, notes de céréales, noyau de cerise, fin boisé, très élégant. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, finement acidulée, une belle élégance, de la tension et une finale acidulée sans aucune agressivité. Une très belle gueuze tout en finesse.

Zurig lambiek-aroma met een fruitige toets. Smaak en afdronk zijn zacht zurig en droog-fruitig. Speciaal, maar kan toch niet tippen aan de Oude Geuze...

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.
