3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to golubj. Aroma was very earthy, funky and sour. A bit of lemon and citrus. Flavor was pretty funky and sour. Not overly sour however. A good amount of acid and carbonation. Still not a big fan of the style; and for the style it was just ok.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle (april 2001 vintage according to the bottle)....semi-opaque orangey brown pour accompanied by a slightly off-white head....there’s a whole lot of funk in the nose which is great. a sharp lemony tartness are the highlights.....sour/tart level was pretty high in the flavor. some more of that barnyardiness and lemon character. finish was pretty dry and leaves the mouth wanting some more......i don’t think you can go wrong with this one if you are a sour-funk-head......i just tasted the girardin black last week and i jsut can’t get enough of these lambics!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 37,5 cl (bottled march 2005). Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head and a fresh apple aroma with some hints of yeast and lemon. The flavor is mainly sour, almost like drinking lemon-juice, but just enough to stay drinkable. Some bitter notes and apple and grapefruit too. My first 3 fonteinen and this one totally rocks!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not bad. It was more effervescent than I expected it to be on the pour, but it dissipated quickly. The taste was good, with a good sourness. All around very drinkable, however it did lack the depth and complexity that really make gueuze a treat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mildly hazy gold with a persistent off white head. Lemon grass and light barnyard aroma. The flavour is largely barnyard with a lot of citric like acidity and some distinct lemon. Tart finish with a nice fine bubbly mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(2006 Vintage) Wonderfully tart aroma. Hints of the barnyard, lemons, and oak playing around in there. Pours a clear golden amber, with visible carbonation rushing through it. It has a big fluffy white head that slowly subsides. This is very tart and dry. A touch of spice exists besides the citric tartness. Overall, quite a tasty Gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Axilla. 2006 bottle. Poured a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma was a light funk yeast with a little citrus. Taste of slight lemon citrus, and a medium to light tartness. A little too fresh for my liking. If could afford to be more tart and a little more funky.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orange color, head settled fairly quickly. Smell is huge, the expected sour aroma is prevalent, along with some faint malty aroma. Taste is sour citrus, particularly lemon. Some wheat flavor as well. Mouthfeel is effervescent and smooth.
