3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 750ml [2009 Label]
Pours slightly hazy blond with low white head. Aroma is of old shoes, highlighter, fusel alcohol or something like that. Taste is of acid acetic, vegetal stuff, sourness. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Overall: A weird, but OK gueuze. Enjoyable in small quantities. [Note: Drank last as part of a blind tasting. I guess at that point the tasters were a bit gueuze-saturated, but still I don’t think this one equals stuff like 3 Fonteinen]

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright yellow with a decent size white head. The aroma is filled with citrus peel, funky earth, and a touch of wood. On the palate it's really sour obviously but there is some great bright lemon juice flavor in there that's very distinct. Refreshing despite the pucker.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). 2009 sticker. Hazy straw color with a low white head and little lacing. Aroma is of funk, lemon, barnyard, light green apple, grapes and oak. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately sour with funk, barnyard, oak and light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is dry. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. A good Gueuze, but far from expectations. It was sampled with 6 other Gueuze in a blind tasting and was far from the best... it was the last though, so I’ll have to try it again.
