4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Didn’t get nearly enough of this on the share but what I got was awesome. Pours hazy dirty yellow with a moderate foamy white head. Aroma is slight tart, yeast and funk. Taste is just a smooth tartness that doesn’t really make you pucker, just makes you want more. Nice farmy funk and complexity from the acidity and light malt bill.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color lambic with a nice off-white foamy head. Aroma of funky ester with some green apple tart notes is pretty enjoyable. Taste is a balanced mix between funky ester with some barnyard notes and green apple tartness. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation for an 8 year old bottle. Good balanced between complex flavours and good drinkability with limited acidity level which I appreciated.

375 ml corked and caged bottle split two ways. Slightly hazy golden pour with lots of sediment and some small lacings on top. Lots of funk, leather, barnyard and citrus. Does have some off flavours though, moldy wood and cork notes.

Bottle at DHVL, 2005 vintage. Clear blond with small white head. Aroma is Woody, funk leather and oxydation notes. Taste is very acidic, brett and citric tartness. Palate is light and dry. Not in the best shape but still good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
37,5 cl bottles in 2009. This 5 year old unpasteurised gueuze explodes on opening. You have to be quick with all the wild yeast pressure. Pours a hazy murky amber with lively and fizzy foamhead. Vanishes real quick. Aroma is hops, hay, malt, apple. Taste is hops, acidic, needs more body.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Old geuze blended from Boon, Lindemans and Girardin lambics. Orange blonde colour with fierce, ’champenoise’ sparkling and dense, frothy head, very powerful and attacking aroma, funky, complex as any old geuze, with lots of citric acidity, barnyard, old cheese, almost ’agressive’ estery fruitiness and woody sherry notes. Taste equally complex and fruity, strikingly acid (a true ’neige’ geuze) - in fact, I found this to be among the most sour of all geuzes I tasted so far. But it has all the finesse and freshness of any geuze and I am glad this blender has taken up the tough job of making traditional lambic beers anew back in the nineties.
