Hazy orange coloured with a small white head.

Acidic flavour of barnyard, wood and fruits.
Very one dimensional acidic, and almost no complexity, I had expected much more.

Difficult to rate. Lots of oak in the aroma. Sulfur too. Medium amber color, hazy. Aroma is very, very acetic. Long duration. Full body. Moderate astringent.

Bottle (375 cl), thanks mybestfriend. Hazy orange, small white head. Eaarthy, woody, vinegary green apple aroma with notes of bitter almond. Ridicilously sour.

RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting @ the Harlequin.
It is quite difficult to rate something so extreme for a style that I am not used at all. There have been some geuzes that I started enjoying, but this is so acidic and reminded me of nail polish. I hope I will have the chance however to try it again with a more sour trained palate

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
So intensely sour as to seem sickly...I am pleased to be distracted by the very lively carbonation. Citrus flavors, sour of course, predominate. Mainly orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Still don’t get it!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sour as you could imagine, lambics are supposed to be tart, this is breathtakingly intense and overrides anything else the beer has to offer bar a bit of citrus and tannin. Its kind of cool at first, then becomes a bit sickening. Same goes with the flavour and body, waaay to sour for me, by far the most intense beer I’ve ever tried. As in the aroma, the sheer intensity of the lactic acid kills almost any character in the beer. A slight brett character and lime rind almost come though enough to mention. I love real lambics but this was just too much.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange colour with a small frothy head. Fruity and acidic aroma and taste. Hopefully this bottle was a bit too old.
