Zlotta (283) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2015
0,375 l bottle as "Gueuze 100% Lambic Bio" from P&M Getränke, bottled in june 2014 (one year old). Clear, apricot-coloured with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Intense, sourish-fruity and funky aroma of lemon, oak, gooseberry and fermented apples. Sourish, funky taste of lemon, fermented apples, goosebery and oak, followed by a long, very tart finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Heavily sour, but also quite fruity and highly refreshing. I cannot yet compare it, but I just love it. Great stuff!

yourilevesque (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Vintage 2006 dégusté sur place en compagnie de 2 comparses fort sympathiques. Bouteille sans étiquette de laquelle jaillit un liquide orange et très effervescent! Magnifique! Arômes complexes de bois, d’un lambic attendri par le temps, légèrement fruité et chaud. Je n’ai jamais senti des arômes aussi délicates provenant d’une gueuze. C’est à se jeter par terre! En bouche, c’est doux, moelleux, boisé sans être chênu, délicat... C’est ni acide ni aigre, simplement sûr sagement âgé. Longue en bouche, magnifiquement balancé, je vis un moment magique dans les caves de l’une des plus grandes brasseries de ce monde!
