4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a glowing golden orange with a large froth of white foam. Aroma is oak, lemon, wheat, tart, cheese rind funk, and tart into the finish. Taste is corse wheat with lemon, funk, and burning tart. Sometimes the wheat dominates and on other sips the lemon or funk will play a stronger presence in the taste. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Ridiculously expensive and ridiculously good. World class.

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Tons of white grape, pear, peach and tons of funk. Cloudy gold with a decent frothy white head. Tart vinous notes, light pear and fruit. So very well balanced and tartness is in check. Great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Like a sharp and snappy gueuze. Big and wonderful 3F yeast with crackery grapefruit and meaty yeast texture. Sweet and sour finish. Cloudy golden pour with good head and lacing. Light bitterness. Comes together wonderfully. Great balance. Bottle pour at Churchkeys 5th.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
375ml bottle served in a Kriek Flute glass.
Corked bottle from 2011. Valid until 2021.
A: Pours a nice orange clear color forming a huge white to yellow head. Very bubbled. Excellent retention and tons of lacings left in the glass. Body is very carbonated and you can see a lot of bubbled popping from the bottom of the glass
S: Lambic like in the nose. VERY fruity and tart. Notes of apples, white grapes and pears. Sweet grains, Lambic yeasts, a little bit metallic. Light notes of wood
T: Absolutely great. Amazingly Geuze. Very well balanced sweetness/sourness. More acid than the traditional gueuze. Upfront is slightly sweet and grainy but very fruity with notes of apples and white grapes. Vinegar. Bit metallic. End is intense Lambic yeasts
M: Light body, high carbonation. Such a pleasure. Sour and vinegar aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect Geuze!

"This is a bit overpriced these days, at more than twice as much as the regular geuze (which ain’t cheap to begin with) but damn if it ain’t one of the best-in-style I’ve had. Oddly more clarity of color in this 4 year blend then the 3. Hands down better. Cleaner yet funkier with a livlier aroma, flavor, and feel."

Vintage 2011 bottle at home. Without even touching the Cork it blew meters away. No gusher, just a lot of carb. Poured a deep amber clear colour with a white head. The citrus and barnyard aroma’s explode while pouring. Citrus, lot of oak, sour fruits, Nice tart mouthfeel, barnyard, flowers, Nice sour finish. With a small spice in the aftertaste. Really complex beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. The colour is slightly hazy orange with nearly no head. Aroma of oak, forest floor, citric acid, horse, rowanberries and hints of pepper. Balanced sour flavour with a dry and oaky tones that lasts. Sweet, fruity flavours in the background. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a light berry bitterness. A solid gueuze, and the years after bottling have made this a balanced and pleasant lambic.
