3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed via a bottle from the cellar. Pours a hazy orange gold with a medium white head with some lacing. Smell is very acidic with a slight sulfuric tinge. Taste also has some of that same sulfur/natural gas edge but tart, almost salty and very sour. It is also so sour it almost feel like it is dehydrating you and has a dryer finish as well with a tart, grapefruit juice and milk combo finish. A very complex beer to taste - a lot going on here.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375L bottle, 2010 Vintage from Belgian e-shop
Pours quite clear, medium orange to amber with big, white, open head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart with some fruity funkiness, ash and burned notes, very good! Flavor is fruity (berry like, strawberry), nice smooth lactic acidity, quite complex and so beautiful. Aftertaste is smooth tartness with just a bit of earthy hopiness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Just beautiful
0.375L bottle, 2010 Vintage from Belgian e-shop
Pours VERY clear, medium orange to amber with big, white, quite dense head that dissipates. Aroma is similar to 2009, maybe the tartness is a bit stronger and some ash. Some overripe fruit from Brett and baryard is stronger too. So so so beautiful. Can’t wait to try it. Apples, lemony, light malty sweetness and lovely tartness, the taste is almost dazzling, I love it. Medium carbonation, very dry, light body.
Very consistent in taste, just 1 year older than 2010, not much more from aging.

0,375L, 2010 vintage, shared by FatPhil, thanks! Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruity, tart, acidic. Flavor is sour, fruits, yeast. Overall: nice, but not as good as one I remember having before. Probably should try another bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
nez assez acide avec un côté pipi de chat, couleur ambrée claire avec une mousse qui reste longtemps, incroyable rondeur en bouche, un côté bien soyeux, pas du tout harsh pour le style. Acidité somme toute relativement faible. Manque de complexité...
Une très bonne gueuze sous évaluée parce qu’elle vient de boon et pas de cantillon ou 3 fonteinen... dommage !

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 2010 vintage. Radiant orange with a thin white head. Aroma is skunked unfortunately. Taste is nice and lactic with doughy notes and tangy citrus. Very bright. Medium spritzy mouthfeel. Wish I had a bottle of this that wasn’t in green glass. Thankfully only the aroma suffered for it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (€ 4.80). 2010 Vintage. BB 2033. Slightly hazy golden colour; head is white and with very good retention plus some lacing. Damn acidic! Barnyard, horse stable, apples on the nose, with drips of lime juice. Taste is equally, or even more acidic, slightly woody. Strong carbonation. Sticky in the mouth, hay dryness in the finish. Should’ve shared it with someone.

Bottle 2010. Pours a clear, pale golden, looking abit deeper golden / orange in the glass. A medium sized frothy head is produced, but dissipates fast leaving a white film and some small lacings. Nice acidic aroma with hints of stables, apples, hay and balsamic-vinegar. Subtle notes of pale malts as well. Taste is moderately tart and wonderfully rounded. Hints of apples and some light citric notes aswell. Dry and highly drinkable. A slight warmth in the aftertaste. lively carbonation, medium body,.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
del 2010 bevuta come prima birra del 2015 (e tecnicamente quindi con 5 anni di maturazione) di un giallo oro con schiuma frizzante ma persitente si presenta con odor di prugna acerba limone e erba bagnata. off flavour importanti di sudore e cavallo che ne contraddistonguono lo stile. in bocca parte citrica, con sentori di uva fragola una nota etilica e finale di una astringenza spiccata che lascia una piacevole amaricatura citrica molto peristente a fine beva. corpo di una bella struttura aiutata senz altro dai 8 abv e carbonazione abbondante che ne facilitano la bevibilitá che resta off limits per i non amanti del genere.
