3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle 2005-2006. Poured in an cantillon flute. The body is moisty corn yellow with an impressive white head that fades quickly though - Seems to be pretty hard carbonated. The nose is pretty acidic with notes of vinegar, apples and sour green grapes. The taste is a bitter sweet symphony with some nutty notes like almonds and a mild but kinda strange grapfruity finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium with the caracteristic butter touch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
05 from the First Annual Chicago Sour Tasting, thanks to Andrew. lightly murky golden pour. Sickly sweet aroma, mild tobacco, some weird spiciness, phenolic, hints of maple syrup. Flavor is sweet but also astringent and bitter. More dark tobacco like flavors. Leaves a lasting dry woody/bitter flavor on the tongue. Meh, not the best for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nose of oak and cherries. Taste is acidic and without funk, and contains oak and apples. Palate is a bit sticky and carbonation is high. This is a pretty drinkable gueuze, it’s enjoyable and balanced. It’s no masterpiece, but I’d pick it over most IPA:s on a hot summer day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden straw with a nice white head. Strong yeast aroma, very champagne like, some Brett. Taste is sweet at first then a strong tart flavor comes along. This has a lot of malt and very light old hop bitterness, and a strong Brett character. Good carbonation and body. A nice brew.
