Hazy straw coloured body with a white head. Cheese and apples were my first impressions from the aroma. Crazy carbonation. Looks like a champagne and kind of tastes like one too. Citrusy, sweet and a bit funky. I didn’t expect to like it but I did.

Una gueuze che raggiunge le vette più alte di perfezione. Se piace l’acidità intensa che avvolge il palato, il corpo vellutato e il retrogusto lungo e persistente che ci eccita e strugge come un lungo addio: questa è la birra giusta. Questo marchio d’altronde una garanzia di certezza.

Bottle, ’97 vintage at 3 Fonteinen restaurant. Pours a hazy, straw yellow colored beer with a big, pillowy white head on top. Massive carbo going on, even after all these years. Aroma is mellowed out a bit, some oak, barnyard funk, cheesy touches and musty, moldy notes. Flavor has lost some of it’s sharper edges. Light acidic, fruity and even some slight, sugary sweetness. Very juicy mouthfeel, short, acidic finish. Aged to near perfection.

@ De Garre.
Aroma of cheese and dry apricot.
Poured with course bubbles and wide head. Taste of crisp apples and a bit of Swiss cheese. Lively palate and solid lingering tartness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from small beershop in Bruges. Has a yellow, peachy, cloudy color, with a small head, reminding me of sparkling wine. One finger wide, vanishes very fast.
Fruity aromas of apples, grapes, smells a lot like wine, sweet and refreshing.
Tastes of intense fruity bitterness, mainly apple as the foremost flavor. This beer is characterized by its high bitterness going along with high carbonation. Taste gets sweeter in the end, apple is still present and stays on the tongue very long, and gets very well underlined by the overall bitterness.
The intense aroma is enhancing, while the beer warms up. A citraic flavor kicks in along with the bitterness.
Has a very long bitter finish, developing from the the intense apple taste, which is very dry.
