3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden, huge head, spotty lacing. Aroma is dominated by cork, light musty/dusty character, faint lemon. Flavor much the same, dominated by cork, very tart through the finish. Brightens it up a bit, but a bit let down, overall.

A great lambic. Sourness nicely combined with the fruityness. A nice cleaner.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted in early 2013 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle, big thanks to whoever brought this to an epic tasting. Pours hazy orange with a white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is classic, cheesy 3 Fonteinen funk, tons of citrus and white wine vinegar, and a bit more malt than some Gueuzes that I have had. The flavor is very dry, nicely sour, and orange zest with a touch of oxidation actually adding complexity to this brew. The body is medium with some tannic texture, light carbonation, and a very long, sour and complex finish.

750 ml bottle to snifter (HUGE thanks to dudeabide). Looks great; a hazy orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells incredible! CHEESE and funk! Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. B.O.M.B.!!!!!

The pour is golden orange with a thick white head. The nose is lemons, orange funk, leather, straw, berry. The taste is high sweet, low bitter, nice and tart. The texture is crisp and clean, body is light and finish is long.

bottle poured(secretly) uh hmmm
huge white foamy head after each pour, amazing how much head came out of this single 750ml
smell was cheese... cheese... and more cheese.
flavor was one of the most well balanced geuze i have ever had. much more mild than the nose.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 750mL bottle at Akkurat, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Nose has incredible barnyard funk...wow...with horse blanket, and more funk - holy shit this is complex. Flavour brings out leather, barnyard funk, horse blanket, and some dry citrus notes. Tremendously complex and funky. Feels a little tired, as though this has peaked a year or two ago, but the complexity is wonderful and the drink ability is extremely high. A world class brew.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, 03/17/2013. Pours amber gold, huge rocky head resides to a nice layer of foam on the surface, residual lacing left in its wake. Rich, tart fruity aroma- green apple and white grape, cantaloupe, soft grapefruit with lemon pulp, with earthy, musty, barnyard notes, mushroom and bit of cheese, lots of oak. Taste is grapefruit, lemon and citrus, sour white fruit, crumbly light blue cheese, mushrooms, rustic barnyard oaky funk. Sparkling, medium palate, soft carbonation. Balanced, very complex, an incredible geuze. One of the best for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a nice richer hazy golden amber pour, darker body, nice glow, with frothy offwhite head atop. Good aromas offer lemon, melon, and gentle white grape. Lactic acid meets straw and barnyard brett, touches of straw, oak, and farmhouse funk. Some bready malts, straw, bigger lactic element shows banana, lemon, and melon. Big aromas burst. Initial is big flavors, tons of fruit, yogurt, and white grape. Some lemons, oranges, and apples. Some pear, oak, and bready malts. Lactic elements, farmhouse, gentle yeast and sweet bready and grainy malts. The flavors burst up front, big citrus, white grape, melon. A firmer dryness into the backend, great, with a sour punch up front that trails off as we move back. Stillt art, rich lactic, firm bretty funk. Some grain, straw, oak. Richer lactic elements, big fruit flavors, perfectly balanced as a big sour uppercut upfront trails off with firm body, funk, and rich fruit flavors. Sourness stays firm past the initial brunt. Really damn good beer.
