4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2008 Draft @ Monk’s Café – poured a yellow-gold color with a light head into a Cantillon stemmed glass. Aroma of earthy-funky-sour berries, mostly raspberry. Flavor has a nice funky-tangy sourness – a bit citrusy and acidic. Picking up some barnyard and berries with some lacto-brettiness to it. Solidly sour finish. Nice gueuze.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Pours a rich golden to orange color with no lasting head, and almost none to begin with. Smell is unappealing guaze, horseblanket. Taste is very sour and bland with no real flavor. No maltiness or sweetness, and just spoiled bacterial sourness. Saying this tastes of the multitude of fruits I’ve read in reviews really seems to be stretching it a bit to me...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle (2006 vintage) and served in a flute. This lambic poured a hazy golden color with a quickly fading head of fizzy white bubbles. No lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of crab apples, white grapes, honey, oak, light citrus, and also some funky yeast. The flavor consisted of a mouth puckering sourness, followed up by apple, pear, white wine, earthy yeast, and some mild citrus notes. The mouthfeel was light, crisp, and dry with mild carbonation. Complex and enjoyable. I can’t wait to get some more!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden poor with a tiny head that quickly fades. Aromas of apple cider, rhubarb, unripped bananas, white wine, alcohol and herbal hops. Acid, sour, salty... Great balance and a lighter lambic compared to its other brews. Added flavors of light white wine, rhubarb and sour apples.

Flavor is the same. It´s sour, yeasty and harsh. Aftertaste is bitter and bitter.

Had it from the source in Brussels, nothing better! Not overly sweet but not too bitter. Tartness is lemon in nature with a somewhat dry note. Mouthfeel is lively but not overdone. Very different beer but a must try.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light and fruity, with big sourness and acidity over the back. Dry woody oak in the very front moves into big peach and apricot flavor. Very much that dry musty flavor or apricots at the end. A perfect thirst quenching summer beer. The sourness sits on the tongue and as it fades slowly, leaving behind apricot all over the tongue, you just crave it all over again. There is even a bit of floral hops giving off just the slightest suggestion of bitterness, which plays wonderfully with the wood and sourness. A very nice example of the style. I could drink gallons of this.

This is now one of my favorites. Sour is wonderful!!! Earthy, horsey nose with a jowl rattling sour. About as good as it gets!

Pours dark hay like yellow and it’s totally hazy. Smells like a clean stable, plenty of funk. It’s as sour as sucking on a lemon with a bit of sweetness, good. Finishes clean and dry. Very nice on tap.
