4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with a bit of haze and strong spritzy carbonation. Typical 3F aromas of dried wooden barrel, lemon peel and funk, along with a faint floral note. Flavors are of driftwood, lemon, white pepper, funk, and more delicate florals. Light bodied with firm sourness and acidity. Great complexity and potency.

Transparent burnt golden color, frothy off-white head. Lemon, funk, must, white grape, and tart pear. Taste is less sour than the aroma - wood, tannin, and funk. Strangely soft carb, light body, and a clean finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75 l bottle from Uba ja Humal, Tallinn. Bottle dated 12/12/2014. Aroma is sourish but mainly fruity. Appearance is light amberish, like faro. Sparkling, but settles fast. Taste is dry, as expected, but not sour or extremely dry. Taste of wood is overwhelming. More smooth than most of the other gueuzes.

Bottle to tulip. Wild funk aroma with slight floral aspects. Hazy golden yellow with moderately large white head that retains well. Taste is magnificent - blend of barnyard which predominates, along with fruity and slight malt character. Beautiful.
