1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A dark brown copper coloured beer with a quickly dissipating white head. A strong sour fruit aroma, smells more like a scrumpy cider than a beer, a positive view would say there is a hint of balsamic vinegar! Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Very harsh, sour fruit taste, cooking apples, vinegary, there is a tiny hint of sweetness in the background, this does attempt to temper the sourness, but in vain! I could imagine this would make a cracking salad dressing though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home. It pours deep amber, with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel, tangy, farmyard, over-ripe fruit, apple, faint vinegar and some mouldy wood. The taste is disappointingly sweet, caramel, mouldy, damp wood, sugar, over-ripe fruit, tanginess, some acidity and cider vinegar, with a sweet-sour finish. Thin-medium body, moderate carbonation and cloying mouth-feel. A gueuze that gives other gueuzes a bad name. Too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle from beer planet.
clear brown, small beige head. Quite dark for a gueuze.
horse blanket, straw, lemons, surish notes bretty notes, medizine cabinet in the aroma, quite hardcore aroma in fact. Flavor is very tart and acidic, but at the same time also very sweet, I’d guess they’ve thrown tons of sugar in, to make it this sweet. Taste is very sweet/sour, but also quite extreme.

Nice aroma, typical of spontaneous yeast effect. The taste is not very good, very sweet and no-sense. Luckily this bottle costed me 50 cent!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
25cl, BB 10/05/2013. The base for the rest of a wretched line of nasty fruit versions, a shame to Belgian lambic tradition.
Cuivrée, col léger blanc.
Arôme de sucre brun, malt, fin houblons en retrait.
En bouche, en effet, une base lambic médiocre avec ce profile de bouche de vieille levure et vieux grains, côté médicinal de houblons secs avec un relent de caramel, le tout restant doux et sucré donnant piètre vie à ce noble breuvage qu’est le lambic.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark amber-orange body. Large off-white head. Looks more like a faro than a geuze.
S: Sweet malts, musty wood, caramel. You can tell this is going to be cloying and muddled.
T: Cloying artificial sugar, caramel, apple cider, and wood.
M: Cloying sweetness, medium body, slight acidity and sourness, and overly assertive carbonation.
O: I am not exactly sure why one would make this beer. If it’s supposed to be an option for people that don’t like the sourness of gueuze, I am not sure how many people would prefer the taste of ass. Seriously, this brewery has the ability to make a decent gueuze (the Cuvee), they should work on making that even better rather than turning this crap out.

Puke. This beer smelled and tasted like puke. Rotten fruit, rotten wood, old rusty metallic crap. God awful. And I mean AWFUL.

Mycket trevligt ganska söt doft. Även smaken är mycket fin. Friska äpplen, fat och en trevlig balanserad syrlighet. Fin
