4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Sliffy...shared at the C-bus tasting. My second lambic rated 4 or higher? I must be losing it because I could swear I hate these beers, but the last two I have had I enjoyed quite a bit. The nose of this beer was lots of sour and funk with some yeasty characteristics coming through as well. Lots of zestiness and citrus coming through in this beer too. The flavor is as over the top as a lambic could get...lots of sour and puckering dryness, but still very refreshing. I enjoyed this beer a lot, but the one glass I had of it will be more than enough of this beer for the next couple years. Very enjoyable!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 1999 vintage of course. Acitic and lactic acid in the aroma and flavor dominate. A little Brett funk lies beneath but nowhere near enough. Way too acidic for a lambic.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1999 Vintage, shared by cquiroqa, thanks Chris! Pours a hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Body is very thin and fully attenuated. Aroma driven buy lemon aciity, but musty, barnyard, and vinegar aromas all take their place on stage. Flavor is perfectly delectable, citrusy and oaky with a beautiful boquet of funk and a lingering dry tart finish. The most complex and well balanced lambic I’ve had to date, and a very special one at that.

Amazing beer. Smells very sweet, almost vanilla but then the barny notes take over. The taste is like a red and brown like sweet and sour... So amazing. 1999, bottle number 06676. If you see this buy it. If you have this, drink it. Life changing.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, 1992 vintage. Pours a cloudy, orange-golden liquid with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is quite acidic, musty and a bit dusty with a hint of rubber. Taste is very acidic but still round, dusty and funky with some fruitiness and a lot of flavours. Very well balanced, a fantastic gueuze.

This is an insanely great beer! Subtle, complex, yet strong sour cherry aroma AND flavor (pickled cherries?). Tart as hell, but absolutely delicious!

Had this tonight, wow is this sour. I think some of the enamel on my teeth was destroyed thanks to this beer. Great tartness, lots of horeblanketness, barnyard aroma and flavor, sour as hell! and great to drink. A true treat to have.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1989 vintage unlabeled bottle at home, 75cl. Thanks to Olly! Was a bit apprehensive about this one as I’d heard the 1999 is bracingly sour and I prefer a more balanced lambic. Was not dissapointed though as this was not extreme. It was fairly lactic but refreshingly so. Lemons and lime no oxidisation. Still a light golden colour and a sharp barnyard aroma. This actually reminded me of a Hanssens Gueuze in it’s sharpness yet drinkable nature. Very nice Gueuze

Drank the 1991 version at the weekend of spontanious fermentation. A very nice product from Belle-Vue, although not really comparable to some other geuzes out there ... .
