4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37.5cl bottle. Hazy orangish colour with almost no head. Sour, fruit, lemon and wood in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex with peach and zest notes but really balanced. Overall, the best gueuze I had so far.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a foamy white head. Sour aroma with malt and fruitiness. The flavour is sweet with malt and fruits (orange, lemon) and becoming quite sour. Somewhat musty. Very dry. Such a beautiful, complex beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Delicious citrus floral tart aroma. Wine-like pale peachy color, minimal white head and no lacing. Pretty fizzy, which brings out the lambic sour citrus tartness, accompanied by a funk in the middle, followed by a grapefruit finish, very dry. Thin bodied, delicate. Tasty and refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750ml 2003 bottle @ Akkurat, shared with friends Jan 4 2015) Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a huge frothy white head and literal wall of lace. Aroma has lots of pungent blue cheese funk, strongly herbal garrigue type notes (rosemary in particular?), lime zest, a little grain. On the palate, nice and bitter and herbal with a mix of dried Provençal type herbs, more lime like bitterness, both zest and juice. There is a little pale barley malt sweetness but just enough to balance the soft acidity. Loads more herbs and complex/strange citrus zest on the finish, touch of wheat. Complex motherfucker. Dry, mouth filling finish. Medium bodied and nearly flat. Quite herbal and more citrusy than expected but without much bright acidity to go with that fruit. Barley malts came through and provided structure. Aged well but also makes me want to try more "highly regarded" aged 3 Fonteinen like Vintage or 50th Ann.

It’s just great! Sour taste and aroma as well as the aroma and flavor of roasted sunflower seeds and a little honeys. Very interesting and tasty

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml bottle (2/14 bottling) pours semi clear amber orange with small head. Nose is big dusty wood, funky oak, lime, lemon, stonefruit, barrel. Taste is incredibly well balanced, complex, various stonefruit and funky citrus, big dusty wood notes, attic, a hint of sweet peach and tangerine, medium tartness. Finishes mostly dry, tannic, oak, orange, stonefruit, dusty attic wood. For a younger bottling this is outstanding.
