Bottled - had as Winter Gueuze at 5.5% ABV. Unclear dark amber beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is very spicy, as well as very light notes of bret, and some spices. Very weird flavor - very sweet, very spicy, cinnamon, leading a dry spicy finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle split with Bruce and Colin at De Heeren van Liedekercke - Denderleeuw, Belgium. Pours clear, red-gold with a creamy white head. Lots of ripe, sugary fruits in the aroma, some raspberry in particular. Big sweet flavor, syrupy, with more raspberry, low tang. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Syrupy finish with very slight sourness, more sugary fruits, bread, apricots. Pleasant enough but very sweet and not a good lambic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle,37.5cl, from trade with jbrus. (as Winter Gueuze) A hazy, orange beer with an off-white head. Cellar and cork on the nose, some raspberry too, and sour, citric notes. Quite sweet flavor, tending towards faro, with cellar, cork, raspberry and citric notes. Flat, almost sticky sweet mouthfeel. Lasting finish. In a strange way I really liked this one, even though it’s far from hardcore gueuze. Lacks on a lot, but still very nice. (081031)
