Fritz123 (809) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton. Split it with my friend Gail. Pours a hazy light color with a small head. Some lacing. Aroma of sour apples and white grapes. The taste was apple, pear, white grapes with a sour tartness. Not overly tart, but kind of a mix of tart and slight sweetness. Well carbonated. Light and refreshing. 2009 vintage.

The beer reminds of a dusty barn apple cider. Nice unbalanced sourness which is very refreshing. Good beer, very pronounced

kiwi_daz (32) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 4, 2014
Nice pop when cork released, nice aroma with a hazy appearance. Was disappointed with taste as my bottle had an off flavour of metal/glass. Shame really as apart from that I really enjoyed it. 2009 vintage

Che dire di questa birra? Che è una delle migliori gueuze in circolazione? Che la sua acidità completa e avvolgente appaga gli amanti del lambic e convince gli incerti? Sta di fatto che l’espressione estasiata e l’espressione basita (quando scopri che ha 8 gradi!!) si intrecciano beatamente e se potessi guardarti allo specchio diresti senza ombra di dubbio: devo riprovarla!
