4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy grapefruit orange color with a fair amount of egg shell head that faded fairly quickly. No legs and light lacing. Good thin collar. Aroma is very much like when I would march in my highschool homecoming parade and the floats were all covered in straw. I also pick up some lemon and grapefruit. The flavor provile is very citrusy tart up front, then some dry grass. Nice silty mouthfeel, very dry, and that tartness stings the tongue. Very glad I got to try this, but I wouldn’t put it in my top 5, maybe not in the top 10.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Café Rose Red, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy straw with airy off-white head. Intense vinous aroma with strong dusty notes and touches of hops. Vinous flavour with notes of basement, dust and hops, as well as well-preserved fruit. Lingering, dry and vinous aftertaste. A very good Geuze!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37,5 cl bottle in teku. Pours a small foamy dense head, bit cloudy orange colour with golden reflexes. Very pungent, funky, basement aroma, lactic, ripe apple peel, brett/wild yeasts. Tastes lactic, wet wood, acidic, a bit cidery/mature apple,and I also get some old/cheesy hops. Nearly o sweetness, almost medium bitterness and high sourness, fairly balanced. Medium to lively carbonation, medium bodied. The sips enjoyed most were the last ones. Something you can’t abslolutely understand initially, and that really needs time to develop flavours in the palate. Unique stuff, would like to try some older bottles of this non-flavoured oude 3F

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I’ve had a million sours now and few have inspired the joy this beer still does after 15 or 20 encounters. Light and tart and fluffy and wild and crisp and vibrant. Amazing and honestly beautiful like a Dardennes film.
