hackobock (3577) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2016
October 24, 2016. Bottle at home, bottled November 22, 2015.
Very light hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and fruity with a fruit syrup feel, brown sugar, overripe mushed peach, apples, some orange notes and a light woody, dusty cellar note. Taste is sweet, fruity with a light bitterness. Sweet finish with caramel and peach, light tartness with some apples and lemon, hints of wet wood and earth. Medium bodied, soft, small bubble carbonation.
Might be a gueuze in there somewhere but it is drowned in a sweet sugary mess. More reminiscent of a faro but lacks the balance of a good faro.

Bottle, 25cL. Home. A pale orange copper opaque beer ; few bubbly ; no head. Apple syrup, woody note, sugar, light skunky. Medium to heavy sweet, light sour lasting. Light body, watery texture, light sticky, flat, short sweet acid finish. Overall, seriously ?!? gueuze ?? not the look, light aroma, way too sugary, flat.

Une gueuze très moyenne qui manque de puissance et de complexité. Pas mon style.

Silvan7 (1106) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle @ home. Giallo dorato velato con schiuma bianca fine. Poca persistenza. Aroma fruttato, albicocca essiccata, zucchero candito, leggermente Brett. Gusto dolce stucchevole. Veramente troppo. Acidità della fermentazione spontanea solo.accennata. Nessun tipo di amaricatura. Carbonatazione lieve, corpo appiccicoso. Non equilibrata e poco armonica

Hamirubi (569) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2015
37.5cl bottle at Trappistenhuis, Ghent (2 X 2015). This is the Gueuze of De Troch, and it is a peculiar one. Served in a tumbler, it has a pale golden colour, even yellow, with little to no foam. The nose is typically lambic: Filt, feet, stinky blue cheese. The herbs hints are too subtle, yet I noticed some thyme. The taste is a dry dustness, with lots of cheese and a keen cassonade sweetness. Far too sweet for my taste! It resembles an old-fashioned Faro.
