3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow to light orange with some sediment and white head that went down quickly. Aroma is grapefruit, lambic basement, hops. Flavor very similar, with sour tones more pronounced, but bitterness and hops still very present. I was surprised how much hops are actually present in the aroma and flavor. Very interesting beer.

"has always been a little too steep to buy a bottle, so when i saw it on tap - had to jump on board. pretty straightforward baryard funk and lemon, with a hint of sweet and dry as well. not a ton going on, but it did tart very well. acidic flavor and feel."

750 from Robertdale. Thanks man. Cloudy yellow. Had this right after Iris and the two were very similar. Bitter hops at the end. Some sour. Some floral. Tasty and refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml purchased at Armsby Abbey before Zwanze 2014. 2012 vintage labeled as Cuvée Saint Gilloies aroma is funky lambic yeast, oak, white grapes and nice floral hints.
Flavor starts honey, tart lemons and citrus pith. The backend of the sip has pepper and lightly tart fruit. The sourness is subtle and doesn’t hurt the taste buds. More tart rather then sour which is pleasing to me. Also shows a weak hint of pine. Jeez for the style this is the best I have sampled to date.

On tap at Erzbierschof for Zwanze Day 2014. Gold-orange color with large head. the barnyard aromas are more subtle than with the normal Gueuze. Apples, grapes, tartness, something special in there which I can?t quite describe. Very fruity. Medium body. A good one!

Pours a beautiful copper with a thin white head that lasted about 60 seconds. Slight ring and lacing. Small snifter at the Sybarite Pig. (On draft by the way...)
Aroma is tight with sour fruits (green apples, light citrus, green grapes, starfruit) and funky yeasts. The taste is similar with the sour fruits, funky yeasts, hoppy finish. Damn good. Dry finish, tart on the back-end.
