UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 My mouth starting watering the moment I opened the box when I got this from puzzl in a trade. Beautiful pour, cloudy beige with very little yellow. Sour appetizing aroma. Very nice tingly palate. Delicious sour initial flavors overwehlm the taste buds. Enjoyable and refreshing as with most real lambics. Wow what an experience! Has much more alky in it than I am familiar with most lambics, 8%. However it hides the alky content well. The only thing I didn’t care for in this brew was the apparent bitter lingering aftertaste, which by the way, was not really that bad, just noticeable. Overall I want to say this beer rocks and I owe puzzl big for this selection. Lovely, reminds me a bit of cantillon iris.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a large white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma of tart lemons, green apple, and some yeasty brett goodness. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness, moderate acidity, and very well hidden alcohol.

[1156-20080301] Bottle. Boozy grainy petrol yeast aroma with a bit of bread. Clear, medium orange brown body with quick white bubbles. Boozy astringent yeast flavour has petrol characteristics. Medium body is sour. Interesting to try and well-blended, good example of a par+ geuze.
