3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden clear. Flavor profile is not far from the oude gueuze 3 fonteinen, with less character. Light bitterness. And some kind of light sweetness.

"Stronger and just a little more darker orange golden than most. Stinky cheese and lemons the main players, light olive, heavy carbonation. Good, not quite great...."

Cor cobre. Couro, azedo, alta acidez lembrando um espumante. Não é para novatos.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2010 bottle. Great note, mix of funk, acetic and lactic notes. Some maltiness comes through. Not overly funky, horseblanket etc, but well balanced. Very hazy yellow/brown color with long lasting thick white head. Taste delicious, upfront a mix of vinegar, green apple and some funky notes, finishes quite hoppy with significant bitterness and a hint of biscuity malt. Great geuze, if not overly complex, would drink this often if it were available to me/was priced well. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

Au nez comme en bouche, les arômes citronnés dominent. La belle petite mousse est suprenament durable.Ce n’est pas extrêmement complexe comme gueuze, mais la touche sûrette, le citronné ainsi que la bonne carbonatation en font une bière très raffraichissante!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours the color of a ripe apricot with the blush on it. Hazy and almost opaque except for it does let enough light in for you to observe it’s lovely color and the bubbles that are starting their way up from the bottom. 2 fingers of white foam top the beer and last until they become a light layer of film on top. Nose is funky with barnyard and earth. Wet damp earth. Some fruit tartness and a sour you can smell. A drop of vinegar and some overall lemon fruitiness. There is some vanilla on the nose that is like a fragrant flower that has grown in this earth and is sweetly in bloom. . Taste is outstanding. Funky, sour, citric, the embodiment of the lemon. The essence of the icy bright peel. The vinegar is not too strong. The earth and the wood come together as like is to like. The headiness of the fruit sweetness meets the light sweetness of the crisp wheat and lay a soft foundation for this dynamic beer. Sour earthy, and with a touch of some kind of green but woody herb to round out the flavor. Dry crisp and bubbly mouthfeel.
This beer is intense. The coming together of powerful earth and a bright bit of uplifted sweetness. The shyness of the musty earth after it rains and the greeness that lies in wait for when the sun comes to shine again. The fruit is the culmination of this beer and is taken whole in it’s every aspect from sweet peel to the tartness of it’s flesh , right through to it’s final incarnation - sour and like vinegar in decay. This beer is truly a perfect wedding of elements.
