3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2003 bottle: Slightly hazed moderate golden hue with a fizzy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of barnyard and cheese musty funk, light lemongrass and heather, rice vinegar, and a dose of light spice. The taste starts quite sour and twangy with a noticeable lemon lime quality and major yeast character. It is not as powerful though as i would have liked. The finish in moderately dry and wood with brett lingering aftertaste. The feel is fizzy and finished dry. This was a bit of a letdown after have had the Boon Gueze just a while ago, which is rated lower but seemed to pack more flavor and depth. Perhaps too young still?

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 A yellowish orange appearance. A funky aroma consisting of cheese, mold, lemons, and vinegar. The flavor was lemon, hay, salt, vinegar, cheese, and orange peel. It was very complex and funkdified. Overall it was a great one.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 mL, snifter. Great looking, white/frothy head on a hazy hued beer. Eggs, hay, barnyard, must, sweat, open fields, oak, sour fruits. Delicious. Lightly sweet, heavily acidic flavor becomes a moderately acidic finish. Medium body, creamy/soft texture, fizzy carbonation. Carbonation could be a little less and this beer would suffer no ill effects. The bottom line is: fuggin’ awesome.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled on Dec. 2, 2003, 5% abv. Intriguing aroma of verdant barnyard, cheese, fresh, leafy herbs, vinyl, faint citrus and dusty grain. Attractive light-medium golden amber color, light swirls of sediment amidst plentiful bubbles feeding a frothy, uneven head. Flavor profile begins with some mellow pale maltiness and is quickly met by a quenching, lightly tart and fruity sourness that easily carries through to the finish, which is very dry and tinged with some light bitterness and acidity. Light-medium bodied with a pleasantly effervescent mouthfeel. Very nicely balanced. An excellent gueuze.

Slightly hazy honey golden color, small creamy head, lively champagne carbonation. Nose has strong sourness, sweaty horse blanket and grassy hops - certainly not "My First Beer" -nose. Very earthy and salty with sharp sour and tart apple juice flavor (and some balsamico and grapefruit too). Lemony, dry citric acidic, hoppy and sour finish and aftertaste. Very complex and very demanding beer.
