Clear orange, light foam dissipates fairly quickly. Fragrant, fruity citrus smell with notes of the oak aging. Dry body, sherry like, a little funk but it is subdued. It comes through stronger as the glass warms. Oakiness in the finish. Only 6% ABV, but this drinks like an aperitif. Excellent.

No head. A little bit darker than the normal version. Incredible oak aged nose. Acidity, more rich than the normal version. More dry. Less acidity than a cantillon

Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish gold with thick white head. Aroma is sour, fruity, champagne. Taste is moderately sour but not overly so. Nice fruity tart flavor. Apples, lemon, yeast flavors. Crisp and tart on the palate. I'm not a huge sour fan but this is very well done.

Pours a hazy orange with a thicker off white head. Funky aroma with green apple, heavy oak and some tart lemon. Same in taste. Nice mouthfeel and pretty dry.

Pours a deep amber with a slight haze and a small off-white head. Aroma is dry, yeast and sour. Quite sour and fruit taste. Not sure why I keep subjecting myself to sours. I’m just not that into it.

(375ml 2011 bottle @ Akkurat, shared with my lovely girlfriend Jan 4 2015) Pours slightly hazy gold with a huge white head and no lace, gusher that the server had to struggle with (cork miraculously missed several people in its cross-bar flight). Aroma of lemon-lime soda flavours, big musty dry hay and serious big wood notes, earthy barnyard and slight cheese. Not sour really, slight tart. Palate is more tart, nice lemon, lime, some orange juice, touches of sour pear, good fruit up front. Dries a ton towards the finish, tastes like an olive tree smells (or something!), big woody flavour and bitter hops. Aftertaste is very long and bone dry, astringent tannic wood and almost mineral in a heavy way. Medium full in the mouth with active but moderate carb. I really like what the 4 year lambic did to this beer, the woody tones combined with lighter malts make for a fairly intense but dry gueuze with little sourness.

Not as intensely sour or flavorful as some Fonteinen beers, but still excellent. Yellow color. Aroma of sour yeast up front with some dry hops. Sour flavor too, also some hops here. it seems to have more hops than most gueuze. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wygląd: Bursztynowe, mętne. Biała piana, średnio i wielko pęcherzykowa.
Aromat: Intensywny, dziki, palona guma, ostro fenolowe, aż ciężko to wąchać z bliska.
Odczucie: Wysokie wysycenie, ciało niskie, faktura papierowa.
Smak: Dzikie ,lekko kwaśne, palona guma. Kwaśność bardzo krótka. Goryczki nie ma. Posmaki fenolowe, palonej gumy
Całość: Bardzo specyficzne, aż ciężko wąchać przez intensywny aromat. Prawdopodobnie muszę się bardziej z tym stylem obyć, żeby docenić.

Pour in a plastic cup for sipping on the train. Pours amber with a good head. The nose shows a lot of tart brett funk - along with some apricots and slight citrus. The palate shows a lot of the same. The tartness intensity on this beer is absolutely perfect. I caught myself downing this beer a lot faster than most sour beers.Highly recommend if you’re looking for a sour but not something terribly tart.
