4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
375 ml bottled on Nov 18, 2010, purchased from Ledger’s a few months ago. Cork was chueco, and ready to go. Citrusy floral volatile aroma gives way to oak, dried apricot and damp linens (a refined barn yard, if you will). There’s quite good clarity here, and color is golden with a brassy orange hue topped with half-inch plush, persistent white head of tightly-packed tiny to medium bubbles with rising columns, leaving some lacing.
Medium body and perky effervescence support a flavor profile rich with some triple cream soft French cheese, tropical fruit and fruit punch around a core of dried cantaloupe and honey that is then punctuated by quite tart lactic and red fruit sour, followed by a sweet lull then a blooming finish of fresh grapefruit that dries and sweetens. Lemon meringue flavors emerge as it warms. (Seems like you can taste oak in the dregs.) Here’s to Lucky!

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy golden yellow with big foamy head, that familiar musky sour aroma coming straight out the bottle. Spritzy mouthfeel with an acidic, dry character.. green apples, lemon, funky yeast all create a sharp refreshing taste with a well-blended, tempered sourness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rate dug out from a while back from MesandSim’s epic Rome stag do. 1999 bottle sat in 4:20, thanks a lot to the legend that is Alex. Pale orange gold with a thin to medium white head. Aroma is yeasty awesomeness, fruity, definite minge, hint of marmite. Palate is stunning. Very refreshing. Verrrry good.
