Paille, feuilles mortes et des veines chlorophyllées. Elle est quand même assez acétique, du bon côté de la limite avec une bonne présence citrique et verdoyante.

Burnt orange, fizzy pour with a thin white head. Lemon, apple, hay, yeast, slight stale/funky aroma. Sweet and tart on the palate. Really is a balanced explosion of sweet, tart and zing. Just fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
White head, with big bubbles throughout the hazy gold liquid. Aroma is sweet and sour, with tart berry notes, absent most of their fruity components. A bit like boysenberry, really. Taste is very tart, and acidic, with hay notes. It etches the palate, and fades away to a clean aftertaste. 4 years old, bought at the brewery, and consumed for rating #1776. Sic semper tyrannis!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a short head diminishing immediately to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is slight barnyard funk, woody notes, apple and citrus. Taste is tart and sour, funk, and citrus. Medium body and low but sustained carbonation, puckering and dry finish.
Bloody marvellous. Tangy and tart, with a pleasant funk. The standard by which gueuze is measured, and with good reason. I don’t see how this can be given anything but full marks.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Pale orange pour with a little bit of a very fast vanishing head, aroma is a strong winey character less present at taste, taste is sour, acidic, funk/barnyard and citrus.
Paired alongside some sushi and some italian prosciutto and pancetta. Other one tasting with me said it’s better with sushi.
Complex, rich, mouthfeel is really pleasurable, strong barnyard character, incredible.

First of this style. Outstanding flavor. Makes me want to go to Belgium. Sour and almost dirty sock flavor that combines for a perfect beer.

375ml bottle (8/2013 vintage) pours hazy toasted orange with a finger of head. Nose is musty wood funk, lemon, apple, citrus, hay, toasted bread crust, old attic floorboards. Taste is balanced tart acidity, lemon crisp, dry old wood, old wood closet funk, citrus, lime, apple. Finish is dry dusty barrel, funky apple, grain, stale bread, soft tartness. Fantastic.
