Big sour smells. Pours orange gold with a white head rapidly dissipating. Sour round apricots lemons and cooked carrots. Oily light carbonation with big flavors and a lingering finish. Wow.

W aromacie winne, stajenne, owocowe. Złożony, intensywny aromat. Barwa rubinowa, obfita piana. W smaku kwaśne, wytrawne, winne, wiśniowe. Orzeźwiające, z niską goryczką, wysokonasycone. Bardzo dobre!

Esto es un cervezón, como su madre lambic pero con más gas, espuma y presencia. Uma obra maestra.

Bottle from the brewery; and my last beer in Belgium. Unclear orange. Faint white head. A bit of funk, more so in the aroma. Medium tart. Citric. Lemon. Grape. Medium dryness. Nothing harsh. Just enough carbonation om the tounge. Refreshing, easy to drink, balamced and interesting. I wish I could have such cheap easy access to it as I do right now.

Bottle bough at Rudat in Dortmund bottled 2015.09.01, poured into nosing glass. Clear orange color with low head. Nose is slightly acidic, Apple and grapes. Taste is mild acidic Brut cidre like Apple taste. Astringent dry finish with acidic hints... Best it gets for me...

Bottled in april 2014. Aroma: earthy, leather, stable, wooden, wine vinegar, orange skin and white grapes. Appearance: orange color, cloudy liquid, white, quickly dissapearing foam. Taste: light sweetness, medium sourness turning little bitter at the end of bottle. Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, long finish. Overall: it’s worth reputation of one of the best standard edition of gueze beers. Even my female flatmates liked it!

Sourness hits hard, but gently hard. Fine hints of fruits like apple. Flowerish. Usual sour wine like boogie. Basic gueuze.

13/05/2016 - glass from 37,5 cl bottle @ the brewery, Brussels. Yellow/orange with a nice white head. Nose is light sour, bit grains, hints of green apple and citrus. Taste is more grains, not as sour as expected but very enjoyable and tempting enough however. Very nice basic gueuze.
