3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 Orange mist with silky suds. Spritzy and sourish. Dribble-making oak/sherbety fruit aroma. Tangy lemon, mouldy tangerine, a touch of G+T dryness. Nothing like as harsh or acidically sour as some of the Oude Geuzes out there. Mellow and wheaty after the swallow. Really enjoyable.

What a gastly brew - far beyond sourish this ale has a aroma and flavour dominated by puke. Maybe I had an infected bottle, but Im not out for a retake...

Pours an opaque cider color with a massive sour aroma. I can smell it right now and it’s sitting next to me on my desk about 2 feet away. The flavor is more so tart than sour with an interestingly mellow aftertaste.

totally fascinating link to one of the most unusual brewing styles ever created. Pours a murky burnt orange with typically massive belgian head, gradually dissapating to a thin foam with intricate lacing. Immediately upon nosing the lambic one is introduced to a number of idiosynchratic scents: vinegar, leather, strong lemon all start off strong, and a slight malt presence can be detected. The palate shifts quite dramatically, intensely sour, then bitter, then finishing rather dry with a citrus kick and a spritzy body. Totally unusual and not for the average beer drinker, but for those with an adventurous palate it’s more than worth the price of admission.

Bottle, with Fin, Loz and Traci. Yellow/amber, white head. Lemon, horse blanket, menthol, apple skin, nettle--a big, evocative aroma. Intense lemon flavor, aggressive sourness tranistions to a lingering quinine finish. The palate is perfection--so light and airy it almost evaporates off your tongue. What a nice beer. The heartburn was worth it. Thanks Fin!

hazy golden color with a thin white head, carbonation was present. Aroma was tart with an strong earth-like quality. Flavor was tart with mainly apples some grass/lemon notes in the finish. Gassy at times, but overall really good.

Tasted 2007-07-21. 5 years old, 75cl. Hazy, dark yellow colour with white head. Aroma of apples, citrus, pineapple and hay. Acidic taste of apples, citrus, barnyard - a little flat, but it doesn’t ruin the beer. Very good!

Slight hazy yellow gold hue, with a white head, at the unwire of the bottle, the cork came out by itself, nice tart, acidic apple fruitiness, with a good musty, barnyard accent, with a sour fruity rhubarb note, with a wet oaky aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart, sour, oaky character, with a musty, citrus acidic accent, with a rhubarb tartness, leading towards a lemony dry finish.
