Odeur de geuze. Mousse imposante pour une geuze. Acidité soft comparé a d’autres oude geuze. on goute le bois du fût. Très pétillante. On peut en boire plusieurs facilement.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong geuze aroma. High carbonation like champagne. Low acidity which is very surprising for this so called 4 year old lambic. Quite enjoyable and could be a good choice to discover lambic world.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle from my secret Santa!
Hazy dark orange pour, with a big, rocky, white head. The aroma is simply sublime. Lots of citrus, musty hay, thick funky horse blanket, and some woody, earthy stale hops, and woody barrel. I can’t get my nose out of it. The mouthfeel is perfect, and the carb is soft, but still solid. The finish is Incredible. Loads of thick woody funk. Lots of hay, barnyard flavours, woody hops, subtle citrus, and a citrus pith bitterness and solid throat lingering sourness. Jesus this is just about perfect. I don’t want this to end. Holy hell this was awesome!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Aroma of musty cider, grass, quite floral with huge funk and tropical fruitiness. Taste mimics with a big lemony floral grapefruit following up with complex barnyard, vanilla and oak. This is very very good.
