4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Vintage 2004) Wonderful tart aroma, hints of apple, and just a touch of basement aromas noticeable if you hunt for them. Pours a clear, light orange, with just a ring of big white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Wow... this is tart... Major notes beyond tartness are peaches, green apples, and lemons. Very dry, with a light body, and very low carbonation. Very long sour finish... I’m really curious what this does over time.

Finally got to try this Cloudy amber with a tall white head. Aroma is sour but very controlled. Aroma is rubbery and citrusy with some horse blanket and musty basement/wet earth notes. Tart taste with fruit and some leather. Finish is mnot that tart, surprisingly, but still dry. Not as acidic as a "fresh" gueuze. Awesome beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy honeyed apricot with minimal white head and lacing. Aroma is acetic sour and vinous with oak, dandelion stems and musty hay. Taste has a moderate acetic vinegar that blends well and is smoothed out by oak and mild tannic grape skins flavors. Moldy barnyard character and an earthy root vegetable that I can’t pin down. Finishes dry with a short sour note. Mouthfeel is semi oily with a light/medium body and lively carbonation. Excellent and mouth watering.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a fairly thick eggshell head. Strong, sharp aroma is mainly pear and sour apple with a hint of yeast. Delightfully sour-fruity flavor has firm apple, pear and malt notes plus hints of yeast and butterscotch. Texture is lively and firm. Pucker up!
