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.

Corked and caged 375 ml bottle @ home. Corks opens with a huge pop. Pours golden clear with no head at all. Aroma is barnyard funk with green apples, light acid and some lemon. Really smooth taste, minimal acid and nicely balanced. Apple skin, some lemon and light bitterness. Really enjoyable!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml corked and caged green bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6%. The cork pops out as son as the "cage" wire is opened. The glass fills completely with white foam, and the slightly hazy golden beer appears slowly underneath. INTENSE and lovely aroma of farmhouse kitchen, white wine vinegar and oxidised cider apples. Smaken er intenst sur og snerpende, med preg av sitron og brettanomyces, og en merkbar bitterhet i avslutningen.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7oz caged and corked bottle courtesy of oRos. It pours with a clear copper body that supported a tall light tan head of foam that hung around for about 5 minutes. The aroma offers up basement funk, tart lemon and then some tart yeastiness laced with a slight soft vinegar note and some spicy aged oak. The is at first biting with bitter acidic tartness but after several quaffs more nuances are noticed as my palate makes the calibrated adjustments. I get lemon, a dash of lime and the spicy oak notes amid a sea of acidic citrus and soft yet firm vinegar. It has a bit of a thickness and richness to it from time to time but overall too biting and puckering to really enjoy for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 mL bottle from Willow Park Wine & Spirits in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours clear amber-golden with a large, fizzy white head that fades quickly to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of grass, funk, oak and citrus, along with tart fruit, earth and perhaps tropical fruit. The flavour is delicate, lightly tart and slightly sweet with big notes of cider, oak, funk and orange. Bitter citrus peels come through in the finish, which is long and dry, with a balance of tart and subtle bitter notes with a touch of fruit. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth texture and light residual carbonation. Overall, wow, a great gueuze. It is elegant throughout with a huge number of flavours developing as it warms, each stepping aside for the next. The older lambics in the blend impart a delicate complexity. 2014-03-11
