Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus and sour fruit. The flavor was not for me, overly sour. I am not a Lambic lover.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
hmm .... my bottle is somewhat different from the ratebeer pic and is listed as 6% instead of 6.5&
Outhouse aroma, with a hint of dryness and something you might expect in your attic. Taste is explosively dry and tart, followed by a massive sourness. High carbonation level, and very acid. Complex and unusual

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - 22 January 2004. Pours a cloudy amber color with a very small white head one top. Aroma is clove, vinegar, oak, and pears. Flavor is high acidic and tart. Very dry taste, much like champagne. Tasting also sour apples and lime. A highly complex beer, never had anything quite like this before. I will have to try different lambics after this one.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7oz, Bottling Date 22 January 2004. Pours a cloudy orange with a two finger yellowish white head. Aroma of pears, light strawberries, lots of acidity, pepper, an aged oakiness (duh), and a fair amount of horse blanket funk. Very acidic and tart, also pretty oaky and extremely dry. Lingering bitterness akin to chewing on lemon rinds. Highly carbonated and medium bodied. I do believe that this is my highest rated gueuze.

Bottle at Cambrinus Rest, Brugges. 25/05/06. Slightly murky orangey golden body with an average head. Aged smell of vinegar, clove and pear. Tart taste with lime characters as well as some wheat also the aroma characters. I thought this was good but I struggled a bit with it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear piss yellow with a lasting white lace. Aroma is almondy, barn-like and acidic as all hell. Body is dry dry dry. Flavors are actually far less complex than I would have expected. Acidic to be sure, but there was a complete lack of typical oaky vanilla characte. I wil say that this did have a nice character remeniscint of chardonnay grapes, more the skins than the actual fruit.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. From the first cork pop to the last sip, this geuze has an aroma that tickles the nose and a flavor palate that dances on the tongue. Hazy golden color with a big head and good lacing. Sour apples, green apples and a little bit of apple cider vinegar flavors. Tartness makes it highly refreshing.
