Cloudy golden color with generous head; it’s highly carbonated. At first, it just smells like an old wet cellar, then there is a more animal presence, horseblanket; some citrus fruits (tangerine and oranges, light cedar); pungent but with grace. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, and as round as a gueuze can be; good malt flavor, definitively not too dry, with sharp but pleasant sourness, and plenty of bitter orange peel; the final is instead more lemony, and lightly astringent.

Golden color; the head quickly fades. As usual, a wonderful sour and citrusy aroma. Taste without compromises: sour, tart, astringent, with clear lemon juice notes; maybe a bit thinner than usual (probably due to the age). Not very bitter, the final (sourness) is quite long.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Jimmy’s No. 43 during a Lovullo Tasting Session. Pours a cloudy, honey gold with a modest white head. Grassy aroma, some barnyard, some florals and tartness. Flavor is tart and crisp, with more grass, sunflower and dandelion. (Yes, I know what those plants taste like.) Soft, tiny bubble carbonation. Some lemon and oak notes. Quite acidic in the finish, and dry with more flowers and earth. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is very sour - vinegar. Flavor is medium sweet and very sour. Sour and dry finish. This is rather one-dimensional with the very sour vingear dominating. Fortunately I like that. 110311

37.5cl bottle. I had no idea that I hadn’t rated this. Hazy gold colour with thin white. Very sour lemon aroma. Unsurprisingly sour in the mouth. But amazingly refreshing on a very hot day. Some farmyard aroma. Fairly good complexity in the mouth . Quite good once you have got used to it.

Bottle at home - 19/08/12.
Pours an apricot shade of orange with a billowing slightly off-white head which soon vanishes to a little edgeing.
Earthy sour green fruits, grandads shed, burnt sugar and accidental piss against the radiator in a mark I toilet!
Tarte and sour fruit taste, apple and burnt caramel.
Medium body and a nice soft level of carbonation.
Dry crisp finish with a sour and apple infused aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Bottled. Yellow-white hazy beer with a small white head. Aroma is green apples, old cellar and fruity acids. Dry, sour, astringent and delicious. Shared it with some lager-friends, and even they sort of liked it. Rating: 8-4-8-3-15-3.8. 051028
Bottle, 75cl. Bottled 20090213. It pours and unclear yellow-golden body with lots of carbonation. Rather small head, firm and lasting, even some lacings. Citrusy, light barnyard aroma with green apples and some mouldy old cellar. It’s puckering in the mouth, well carbonated and medium bodied. Lots of acidity, lemon and unripe apples, some funky cellarish barnyard flavors, but not very much. Quite medicinal too, at least much more than in the last two bottles I’ve had. Lasting finish with acidity and citrus peel. A quite fantastic beer, and what’s even more fantastic is that it’s available all over Norway. Who would have though that three years ago. 110109
