3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 1993. Golden and very unclear - almost impure. Extreme sediment inside. Very vinegary but without the subtle and sophisticated flavours found in the best, traditional gueuzes. 150602

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled (Thanks Jacob, 1999 vintage, rating #1800). Hazy pale nutbrown colour, minor head. Sour apricotty aroma, with some earthy hints. Flavour is sour fruity, almost like a white wine. Extremely dry lambic, but still refreshingly full of fruits and sourness. Just lovely. Good way of celebrating 1800 ratings.

Hazy orange coloured with a small white head.
Acidic roa of barnyard, wood and fruits.
Acidic flavour of barnyard, wood and fruits.
Very one dimensional acidic, and almost no complexity, I had expected much more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottled. Cloudy orange. Aroma of barnyard and lemon juice. Very acidic with clean, rounded mouthfeel. There’s sweet malt beneath the powerful acidity. Very flavourful, but not as complex and lively in mouthfeel as the best gueuzes I’ve had.

My Rating # 2100. 75cl bottle. Pours unclear golden with a small head & lacings. Nose is dry, tart, vinegar & leather. Woody & crisp. Oily & sticky palate. Fruity taste - some orange, tartness & lovely oakyness. Just as good as hoped for. Thanks to the guys at Plan B!

Muddy blond color, poor head. Excellent Lambic. Should I say more? There is some apple fruitness in the taste; astringent. One straight, pure, lovely Lambic.
