4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 2008 vintage. Thanks a bunch Theis. Pours murky brownish red. Minimal head. You get a lot of grain, sour dough, rye bread notes, herbal and spicy notes, lacto, vinegar notes, green apples. A bit oxidised. Taste is like sultana raisin juice with hits of dry lemon and loads of lacto. Dried fruits, and apple cider vinegar. Really nice!

This was a treat, nice to finally see the top of the faro ladder! .. . pours a murky tan .. medium foam .. . trodden prune, clumpy sugar, barn bucket, and rope funk .. . slick mouth .. . pretty tasty . . .. Well, I could be wrong, but I believe, uh, diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the civil war era.

2009 bottle. Not much in the appearance and hardly any carbonation. The scent is a tad funky. I picked up on a nice fruit scent. There is primarily sour grapes in the flavor. Overall a fine drink for its style. The palate isn’t hit hard and the tartiness fades nicely.

Very sessionable gueze due to the big caramel flavour. Very strange, even for a belgian lambic. Thanks Jack for a good couple of hours on the verandah.
