2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear dirty old gold colour thin bubbly white head. It’s a tad sweet. Somewhere there may have been a lambic in there at some point but now it’s way too sugary. OK though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy golden colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of peach juice, citruses, and some barnyard; taste is surprisingly sweet with sourness and peach again; not really good gueuze

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dette var nytt for meg. Tåkete guloransje med lavt skum. Lett surhet i duften. Noe fruktig sammen med med noen nyanser som ikke er lett å identifisere. Smaken er sur fersken sammen med noe såpeaktig. Ettersmaken er noe juiceaktig. Litt dessertvin preg på den.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Golden color, some foam. Medium low aroma intensity;light stable, raisins, citrus. Medium/ light body & complexity. Starts off sweet, some balancing sweetness- ends up on the sweet side. A bit disappointing

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dirty golden body with a small bubbly white head. Nose is cellar mold, mild acetic tones, cork, hay, wood and hints of straw and grape peel. Taste is mild sour lactic notes, red berries, raisins, grape peel and hints of hay and white sugar brine. Light body, soft carbonation. Tastes a lot like a Faro of sorts, not really sour at all and with a watery, sugar-blended feel to it. Not suitable for a gueuze at all, in fact I would like to see the blending scheme for this one.

Corked and crown capped bottle 37.5cl. Clear amber brown, small foamy beige head, diminishing quickly, light lacing; light sour aroma, vinegar, barnyard, sugary; taste medium sweet, light to medium sour, candy sugar; medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste sweet and light sour, cherry, woody notes; all in all refreshing but not a Gueuze, more like a Flemish brown beer,

Pours a hazy orange. Nose is very acidic, very sweet, almost foot smelling. Thick heavy, orange forward, very sour with a lot of sweetness at the end. almost no body, very little carbonation. Oh well, it’s technically Lambic?
