(Bottle 75 cl) My version was only 6% ABV. Golden, hazy - pretty much no head at all. Complex sour, vinegary notes. Very traditional blend with all the horseblanket, sweaty esters. 201297

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Vintage 2003: Hazy yellow with a minimalist’s head, this has a "barnyard sour" aroma, musty with subtle hints of yeasty fruitiness. Tart yet malty to taste, it carries flavors of sour pomes and citrics along with a hint of leather and bleu cheese. Puckeringly tart finish. Refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 on bottle) Nice with a geuze with multible elements equaly represented for a change. Pears, malts and acidicy balanceses beautifully in the aroma. The citrics pearls nicely with the carbonation. Has a good rs- strawberry feel to the finish. Complex and yet a whole.
RERATE on a 1993-bottle tasted in 2007). Clear, dark orange, white head. Extremly mellow and divine wild-yeast aroma; raisin, drenshed wood, cassis, cellar: fantastic. Perfect berry-sour mouth feel and tartness. Lots of yeast and acid. Some wood, freshly cut wood. Slides back and forth in this symphony of berries, wood, moulded paper, autum leaves and urinal; fabouless :) 4.4.

This was my first ever lambic style beer. Straight from a wooden barrel at the paradise beer festival in Brussells. I must admit the first time I tried it i was knocked back and didn’t know what to make of it. Years later...
Love it! Funky and barnyardy with lemonesque sourness with lots of straw thrown in. Rather tart but just before that becomes too much the buttery smooth finish hits you. Almost exactly what I want from a geuze. Mr. Boon deserves all the respect that he gets. Excellent all the way around. Save the last inch or so for the finish! It becomes very murky and scary! Wonderful!

Young bottle: Cloudy golden beer with little head. Big aroma: Oranges and lemon. Hay and leather. Winegum and port. Sharp acidic flavour, fruityness that lands between lemon and a gin&tonic.

Post Dark Lord Ratebeer experience. This was not a young bottle, but it sure was good. Very smooth sourness with grass and yeast. The mellowed out tartness is very nice. Thanks Eyedrinkale.

Unsure of the vintage, but this baby had some years on it. Cloudy gold with a medium head that didn’t last long. Funky cheese and barnyard aromas. Taste is really dry and I can only assume the tartness mellowed out over the years. The hops are skunked a bit in a good way. Still, refreshing and dusty.
