UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Bottle, shared by gottalottaibu. Thanks! Topaz with a lasting ring of foam. Aroma of earth, wood, funky citrus, and musty grape. Flavor is earthy champagne and musty oak. Near-medium body is mostly smooth, acidic dry and tingly.

On HANDPUMP at Lucky Baldwin’s. Aroma is mustardy and full - not excessively sharp. Color seemed a bit watery for the style. Flavor was nice indeed - like a cocktail of grapefruit and strawberry. I do prefer the sharpness lent by carbonation, but this was very good still.

2003 bottle, cork and cage. Honey colored pour with a white head. Pithy and tart citrus aroma, yeast, bready. Sour and refreshing. Pithy again, notably lemony. Well balanced and very decent.

Bottle. Golden-brown body. Nice off-white head, hazy and well carbonated. Aroma is dry and fruity, mainly citrus fruits. Flavor is dry-bitter grape which quickly disappears into a dry and slightly sour finish. An okay gueuze.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by 2026? Yowzah! I wish I was more patient, but still delightful. Light clean golden yellow with a thin even white head. Tart biting lacto-pedio nose. A bit salty. Straight sour. Hose blanket/straw. Light body, rather carbonated. Biting sharp tart. Straw astringent. A bit stronger on the malt for the style. Fruity. Lingering tannins. Really nice even if there were some grapefruity plastic flavors.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served with spicy tomato soup with coriantes and scallops. Very sparkling when poured. Nice golden straw-yellow with a huge-bobble white head that stays. This one is much stronger than regular gueuzes but you cant tell the alchol by the nose. There is old apples, sourness like grapefruits, some vinegar and fruit. The taste is classic sour with grapetones - the palate is surprisingly rather thin and not that oily. The finish is bitter.

Front a 750 ml bottle from the Northcoast Coop that cost $7.69 it poured a hazy yellow with big white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit, with banana and citrus in front, and pear and apple showing in the taste. Lively highly carbonated mouthfeel, but good to drink. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter. Good.
