UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 Bottled (750ml). Best before 12th of September 2023. Clear gold for the first couple of pours, then cloudy, frothy white head that continues to grow for a few seconds after the pouring stops. Musty aroma, sour, a drinkable gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color with a frothy white head. Sour lemon and earthy geuze aroma. Nice lemon flavor, with some hay and other earthy flavors. Pretty strong metallic aftertaste. Nice light feel with tiny bubbles and a dry finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden with a large, soapy, white head. The aroma was full of lemon, metal, dust, and a slight funkiness. The flavor was not nearly as tart as I thought it would be...very easy drinking. There were some nice musty/dusty tones and metalic/sour tone. The feel was very lively...lots of bubbles...semi-dry finish.

Golden color, white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma is sour and woody. Taste is very sour and citrusy. Finish is dry. Interesting, but not a favorite style of mine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Best by 05.02.22) I bought this bottle on closeout for $1.99/375ml. Wow, the nose is full of horse blanket, manure, and iron. The head and lace are top notch. The palate is brisk light and airy. Loads of iron on the palate, coupled with a strong, but welcome acidity. This beer is 6.5% ABV and drinks like it is half the strength. I find this lambic to be well balanced.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opened with a pop and poured a deep gold with an insane head. Very active carbonation - I just sat and watched the bubbles gush from the bottom of the flute - beautiful. Less sour than other lambics - it didn’t strip my tongue as others have. I consider that a good thing. Besides the obv lambic sour, the taste is yeasty, a littly fuity, and even some aged hops show up. Finish is clean and dry. Although not the most hardcore lambic, I found this very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a musty nose. Very dry and sour with a grapefruit/lemon character and a tongue-strippingly acidic finish with some bitterness. Superb traditional stuff. (Bar Fringe, Manchester)
