4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle with big thanks to mcberko! Pours deep golden, clear, and with a dense, creamy frothed egg white head. Aroma is divine: at first is a whiff of horse blanket funk, followed briefly by some sulfur that quickly gets lost. Lemon zest, mineral, and something that smells like a mix of cotton candy, acidity, and lemon funk. Basically all kinds of gueuzie goodness. Taste: quite tart and surprisingly salty. Brine and bile, held together by lemon and pickle juice. Surprising how so many flavors that sound disgusting by themselves and even worse in combination can be so damned tasty. Light-medium body, average carbonation, slick and oily with a long puckering finish. Overall: reading over what I wrote, I don’t have any idea why I enjoyed this one as much as I did, but I was happy to sit and sip this for a nice long while. Really nice. Thanks again, Matt!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 355 cc bottle shared with JB. Pours a slightly darker cloudy orange than the standard fonteinen oude geuze. There is a huge off-white head that lingers longer than the standard. The aroma is sweeter with more fruit notes than the standard. There are hints of peach, sour apple, grape, and gooseberry. The flavour is astringent sour apple and grape skin with funk and barnyard. The flavours are more concentrated than the standard, perhaps due to excessive evaporation in the 25% 4 year old lambic. Wow.

Bottle shared at the GTMW ticket line, pours a hazy orange with a thicker off white head, the aroma was of tons of funk and oak, sweet but yet funky and tart at the same time, almost apple like, the flavor has a lot of tartness on the front end with a oaky finish, nice mouthfeel, nice bier.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overripe fruits, stable, strawberries and goose berries in the aroma. Hazy golden orange appearance. A bit frutly sweet prelude that abruptly is hit by a heavy sourness with lots of green apples. The finish is a mix between strawberries and green apples. Medium body with average carbonation, would prefer it lighter with more carbonation. Really nice and refreshing, never thought it would happen but I actually start to like sour beer.

12.7 fl oz bottle sample via Piscator34 (you rock). Pours a deep gold with a minimal white head. Aromas are a bright, sour, citrus with a zesty yeast quality. Taste is citrusy goodness with a sour, dry bite. Assertive, dry, medium, sour finish. This...is...awesome.

Sigmund viser igjen med sin generøsitet når vi får et så eksklusivt øl på Mandag i annen (kanskje fordi det er 2. påskedag?). den heftige aromane legger seg i nesehøyde når flaksene åpnes andektig. Højt skum!! En intens aroma so virkelig river i snyteskafet. Syrlig og bærsøt smak. Rund. Bruser i munnen, emn allikevel ekstremt lett drikkelig. Nå er vi i komfortsonens hovedmanesje.
