Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large good lasting white bubbly head. Aroma is sour apple, light barnyard, lime, grapes, light wood. Taste is medium sweet and sour. Medium body, oily texture, prickling carbonation. Medium sour and dry finish. Seems a little sweeter, less farty and less dry compared to the standard Oude Geuze, which I think makes for a better balance.

#1 Let this shit warm up! It gets so much better! Aromatics are very solid in funky tartness. Appearance pours super bubbly, heavy head, and light;y cloudy golden. Taste is immediately sweet followed by a strong tartness that really lingers.... and lingers for a few minutes. Palate is subtly bubbles and a nice finish. Overall, a taste and unique brew. Price is steep though (still worth one or two a year).

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: (9- world class) Dandelions, strong brett character, slight cheesecloth, white grape, pretty bright.
Appearance: (5- world class) Beautiful mellow opaque gold with a ring of white head.
Flavor: (8- very high quality) Floral, bretty, less cheesecloth, lingering tartness, still very bright.
Palate: (5- world class) Medium body, sticky texture, effervescent carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Pretty much awesome, and likely to become much better with age. Still bright even with the mixture of younger Lambic. Thanks to Travlr for the wonderful gift!

Pours deep gold into a tumbler. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to skim surface. Sour summer fruit and oak aromas. Soft with sour fruit and aspirin upfront turning to tart oak in the lasting earthy finish.

Bottle courtesy of BenH. Cheers pal. Pours a hazy pale Golden with a white head. Aroma is lemons and Apple. So flavoursome. Funky, musty barnyard with an all encompassing tartness. Like sucking on Lemons. Bags of Brett and a light herbal element. A rare treat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to teku. Smells very fruity and sweet from a foot away. I think of Concord grapes just sitting here. Up close its a little funkier but still sweet after the initial lemon and wet wood fragrance. Color is darker than I expected. It is amber with a two finger, airy, white foam head. The head condenses to a half finger cloud but leaves no lace behind. Taste is tart and funky. Behind the tartness I get wet hair and then dryness pulls the moisture from the mouth.
