dry, grapey, horsey aroma..hazed amber color, thin head...grapey sourness, lacking complexity though IMO..more of a fruity sourness instead of a funky sourness..

2001....slightly hazy, orange golden color, head is whitish, and moderately lasting. lots of tart vinegar in the nose, smells like a leaking basement. flavor is just as tart and musty as the aroma, moderately fruity, but a little too sweet in the finish for my taste.

That unmistakeable aroma hits your nose in a way few gueuze beers can. Beautiful head, sour tasting and bubbly... Near perfect.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, Oud Arsenaal Antwerp. Gold, good white head and good condition. Excellent farmyard lambic notes over a gentle caramel tartness in the nose. Polished citric tartness in the mouth, some lambic funkiness sticking out here and there and a quite dry and slightly tart finish.

Hm. This vintage is totally different than the 2002. More lively mouthfeel, more apple, more earth and not as sour(but still). Much more quaffable to say the least.
2002 vintage, gave 6/3/7/4/14
Hazy amber. Earthy acidic aroma. Refreshing and palate cleansing plus a little acidic. My journey towards geuze geekdom has begun. I'm starting to like this stuff!

Amber, cloudy, rocky white head. Intensely sour nose--lemons, malt, grass/hay. Flavor is total sourness, hurts the lips and any nicks in your mouth. Slightly salty, a touch of sweetness, complemented by hay, horseblanket, must.

This mixture of different geuzes is a true mouthful of flavours. It's fresh acidity, in combination with the burned wood flavours and bitters aswell, makes this a truely interesting tasters experience
