1500 rates bitches. 2010 bottle. And while this was not even in the top 5 of the afternoon from a rankings perspective, this rating is honoring the fact that in a couple of years, how far I have allowed my palate to come. Sticker said $14.51 which I find to be funny. One of the funkiest beers I have ever had. Four years put this beer into the ’zap all moisture from mouth and leave a tart stinging lemon lingering aftertaste’ in my mouth. Not complaining. Barnyarrd funk, tart citric acid. Good, but I think I detected some oxidation however. I think I am a fresh guy. Super happy to try - thanks Donnie.

Bottle. Pours pale, slightly hazy, a bit of foam. Aroma is thick, feels like apple juice, still fermenting. Taste is versatile, starting off with a fruity note, followed by bitterness of an apple that is gone bad - everything in a good way. This bitterness remains in a mouth for a while. Complex beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: citrus, fruity flavours, sours, champagne-like. Appearance: clear pale gold, small white head. Taste: medium sour. Palate: bitters coming up, citrus flavours again, average-long finish, dry. Overall: a Lambic, not my favourite style, nice aroma, but too sour for me overall. Bottle from Beer Hawk, England.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 37.5cL. Home. Bottled in december 2012 (15 months). A pale yellow brown beer with a large white head. Medium persistence. Yeast at the bottom of the bottle. When I took the top off the bottle, I discovered beer on the cork. Worrying ?!? Nevertheless, good aroma : smoked, fruity acid (apple?) note, wood. Heavy sour in the middle, medium in the end. Light bittersweet. Medium body and texture. Lively carbonation. Lasting sour finish. Overall, a very good Gueuze !

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped and corked small bottle into a tulip glass. Effervescent and champagne-like pour. Smaller head than I was expecting, gone in an instant. Very clear, again not what I was expecting. Aroma of cheese, yogurt, cloves, spring flowers, lemon zest. Carbonation is strong but not overwhelming. Taste is mostly the same as the aroma with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Overall a very nice interpretation of the style. I would have liked to see a brighter color and somewhat cloudy suggesting live yeast, but still very nicely done, went well with the pork and rice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
average fizzy white head. good lacing. fully diminishing. sparkling average yellow body. aroma: vinegar, white wine, lemon. if: moderate acidic, light bitter, acetic vinegar. ff: light sweet moderate acidic bitter, acetic vinegar, salty; long duration. palate: light medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent finish. Mais complexa que todas as gueuze que já tomei, mas menos azeda que eu esperava. Amargor de casca de limão. Amargor crescente lembra também algo defumado trazendo a mente a presença de cinzas, ou definitivamente algo queimado, talvez madeira. Bem peculiar. Amargor escalante, bem como a presença de cinzas. Toques salgados de azeitona. Copo mais estreito liberou menos aromas azedos. Bem pro final, no ultimo terço da cerveja e com ela já mais aqwuecida, sente-se leve dulçor, lembrando, de longe, mel. Segundo sibila yabu então, lembra amargor de lima e de água tônica. 200 s
