3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on-tap at Churchkey on Zwanze day 2012.
A - Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small half finger tall bubbly white head, dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all down the glass.
S - Smell is pretty muted until it fully warms up. Hints of funky cheese, damp oak, basement must, some lemon zest and a dash of vinegar.
T - Starts off with a big sour kick that fades as quickly as it hit you leaving behind hints of lemon zest, musty funk, dry oak and a dash of booze burn. Finish is funky with a moderate amount of dryness, doesn’t stick around too long tho.
M - Light with very light carbonation. Its has a tart feel but it does’t linger for very long, allowing it to be consumed quite easily.
O - I feel like this is exactly what an unblended two year old lambic should taste. Sure its a little rough around the edges, but thats why its perfect for blending and fruit additions. I am glad I got to try this, I look forward to having it again one day, hopefully a little closer to the source.

Pues probé esto en la visita a la fábrica de cantillon en Bruselas. Es increíble, parece un mosto o sidra, su gran complejidad, acidez y ligereza hacen que esta sea una de las cervezas más delicadas que he probado y además sea muy muy bebible.

18 months. A little flat in my opinion - though I had it right after a much stronger tasting beer, so perhaps it was just flat in comparision. Decent funky smell.

Gold, orange colored body. Very nice mouthfeel. Less complexity than the regular gueze but a great beer to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery May 2016. Unclear golden orange body, practically without any head. Aroma is funky, fruity and acidic with a little apple cider in it. Flavor is sour and acidic with some fruit, wood and Brett. It’s surprisingly smooth and rather less acidic and sour than the Geuze, this goes for the complexity as well, pretty straight forward without the depth and richness from a Geuze. At the same time you can detect the basic elements and knowing your Geuze it’s interesting to sample the basic ingredients. Also a big plus to sample this at the brewery. This is highly enjoyable, but to be honest, if someone just poured this into my glass as an apple cider or something the score would probably be a bit lower. Honesty is crap sometimes.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand-pumped and foam-vaporised full draughts at Moeder Lambiek 2015 and 2016-IV, 12m-18m. - Pumped clear golden yellow and foamy (!). Lovely cheesy lemon balm and grapefruit juice in aroma, pierced by soft white balsamico sulphurs, white peach and lemon. Taste develops into sweeter lemon juice with old cheesy citrus rind from the old hops, then must throwing a dusty, slightly sulphuric wet blanket over all that, leaving on a pure lemon juice prickle in the throat. - Not quite as meaty, oily and complex as my all-time favourite G.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at brewery’s tasting room. Pours pale, light and not much foam. Aroma has some autumn funk going on, not that sour. Tastes also nicely smooth, some funk and a bit of sour. Sipped this one for quite long, nice and enjoyable when maybe simple lambic. Basic and solid.

From a jug at the brewery. Orange gold. Very light haze. No head. A tad cheesy. Some wood. Soft funk. Taste is dry mostly, with a little sweetness on the lips. Softly acidic. Dries out. Very nice.
