4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: hazy copper color with little bits of golden at the edges; soapy & bubbly white head grows large and recedes in one, fluid motion leaving behind only a small bit of lacing. Aroma contains stone fruit skin sourness, tart, lightly acidic, lacto, mild grassy & herbal notes, tons of funky yeast, sweaty socks, wet oak, hay, barnyard floors & musty blankets. Super funky & impressively tart on the nose. Flavor is the same; tart up front, sour apple, stone fruit, lemon flesh, drub & musky funk notes, burnt oak, a bit of sweat sock, & other characteristic Belgian critters. Super dry finish, crisp mouth feel. Different bottles vary in tartness but the funk is always full force. Great gueuze, even better price.

Bottle @ home. Fin gylden farve. Lugter surt og af stald. Smager surt til at starte med, senere blomsteragtigt og til sidst frugtig. God øl? :)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle, 2012 vintage, pours a clear gold with a light white bubbly head, aroma is pretty funky but there is a little bit of skunk that comes through as well, doesn’t ruin it by any means but you can tell it’s there, the flavor has a really tart front end with some grape fruit in the finish, really dry through out, some tannic and vanilla at the same time in the finish as well, really neat beer, nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,75l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Cloudy, orange colored beer with small, white head, it’s like a veil. Tart, sour odor, like a classic lambic. Lively tart aroma with light and pleasant fruity and yeast flavours. At the beginning it’s silky, fresh and has a little berries feeling. At the back of the tongue the classic LAmbic feeling, the dry, sour, yeasty aroma. It has mature and intensive aroma. As it gets warmer, it becomes softer, frutier, richer and less sour. Dry, sour, mature taste. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation. Dry, fruity, tart finish. Very mature, sophisticated Lambic. It worth to let it get warmer.
