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.

Bottle @ Rotary pub, Göteborg
Pretty tart, funky compost aroma with traces of banana
Nice orange clear appearance but the head does not impress
Very sour with a taste reminding of oranges and cherries
Light, dry body with a fizzy carbonation just as a lambic should be
Very clean lambic. It is sour but not too fruity

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Anthony. Shared with Steven and allmyvinyl.
Appearance - expected it to be a gusher as cork hit the ceiling but it was a typical gueuze. Pale, with a thin fizzy head.
Nose - incredibly cheesey with just a hint of citrus.
Taste - less cheesey but still somewhat. It also has an appley tang in the middle and a zingy citrus finish.
Palate - light but concentrated and tight structure with a long zingy finish.
Overall - one of the better examples of a gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle shared at home. Corked popped out with a bang, and it suddenly smells like a cheese shop in here! Never experienced such a cheese and barnyard aroma from a beer before. Wow. Hazy amber pour, decent head. Tastes of lemons, cider with a hint of vinegar, some oak at the back. Complex and interesting, but couldn’t quite get over the smell.

37,5 cl bottle at home. Pours cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is big funk, zesty, barnyard, acidic and some orange. Taste is medium sour and light sweet. Lots of funky business going on, quite pleasant. Not too complex though, had enough after one glass. Medium body with average carbonation.
