4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma is very special, some hay, some marshmallows, a bit of barn.. But very, very nice. The appearance is perfect, rather dark, brown, Orange a thick head that stays well and is white..
Tastes amazing, a champagne feel, but with wonderful deep flavor af sweet apples and caramel.. A complexity in the taste yet easy to drink.. A long palete..the initial carbonated feel goes away and a white wine oiliness takes over, the Apple, grape taste depends and there a hint of alcohol wariness that rounds off the taste., one of the greatest brews you can drink! If this gets even better with age it will be over the top great.. I save the highest possible rating because it can, in theory, get even better..WOW

Bottle at tasting. The aroma and flavour is considerably more oaky than the normal version, also less sour and more tart tanninish towards the finish. Dry barnyard finish. More balanced. Very good.

Cloudy orange color without foam. The smell has old feet and a little funk. The taste is lightly carbonated, funky, lightly sour and has old feet just like a geuze should be. Dry and light sour aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml green corked and caged bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is murky amber with a medium sized frothy beige head, that reduced quickly, leaving a little lacing. Aroma of green apples, leather, barnyard and lemon zest. Flavours of green apples, table grapes and oak wood notes. Taste is light sweet and heavy sour. Palate is medium-light bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. A benchmark for the style, excellent but expensive Gueze.
