4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(18mo from ceramic jug at the brewery, July 25 2015) Pours slightly hazy medium gold with no head. Aroma has tart crabapple, cider and white wine vinegar, wet basement and mulch, some wood, old hops come through a bit with hay. On the palate, moderately acetic, apple vinegar and skin, a little citrus, maybe underripe peaches, oak fairly prominent towards the finish. There are dried leaves in the finish, softly medicinal, funk is dry and dusty. Aftertaste dry and lightly bitter, light bodied. Pretty damn drinkable unblended lambic, maybe a bit more time to get woody would be nice. Think I actually prefer it to the regular gueuze though, in small pours.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice really golden color. Bubbly white head that soon vanish. Funky tart green apples, some vinegar and oak in the aroma. Medium body and a quite flat carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Sour tart green apples, fruity, vinegar and oak in the flavor. Not the best from this brewery, but quite nice a summer evening.
