4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly hazy golden with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of barnyard, funk, some fruits. Taste is pretty much the same, with that nice barnyard twist. Oh, and it is sour. Palate: Light body. Overall: Very good. Reminds me a bit of Drie Fonteinen stuff. I’d have this everyday if I could.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteilles de 375 ml, embouteillée en 2009. Arômes complexes de brettanomyces, portant sur le foin sec et même les fleurs. Quelques allusions citronnées. Robe blonde, effervescence active et belle mousse disparaissant rapidement. En bouche, les notes rustiques et phénoliques des brettanomyces demeurent à l’avant-plan. Le malt apporte de délicates notes presque mielleuses. Finale lactique et citrique d’intensité moyenne. Une très belle gueuze, relativement facile à boire.

They may be relatively new, but they can make a fine gueuze. Sour, grassy and intense.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2009 vintage. Bottle from Etre Goirmet. Fucken hell, this one is a masterpiece. Pours a pretty cloudy peach color with an enormous white head that just keeps growing. The aroma is very sharp, very funky pungent cheese with an intense amount of rotten crotch. Some fecal matter. Taste is very acidic, bright, pepper, crotch. Finished bone dry with a huge amount of ass to mouth. Yes.

750 ml bottle (several occasions - taken from notes). Together with Tilquin and Hanssens severely underrated compared to 3Fonteinen and Cantillon. As for this beer, pours dark yellow to orange (depending on vintage and age - God I love the influence of nature). Aromas are typical sour funky citrus (less on the barnyard funk) and grassy notes. Ligth & crispy body, nice carbonation, smooth and silky mouthfeel. This keeps drinking like nothing; Long live lambic beers!

Bottle. Pours golden with a big creamy head. Aroma is sour and funky with hay, earth and brett. Medium body with quite lively carbonation. Flavour is sour with lemon and sour apples, as well as good funky notes of barn, brett, vinegar and notes of earth, before a nice tart finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at Monmouth Park gathering. Poured a clearinsh gold with lots of effervescence and an average bubbly light white head. Aroma was vinous, white wine, sugar, green grapes, crackers. Body was fuller than expected with some astringency and stronger carbonation. Flavor was a bit flatter than the aroma, notes of bread and crackers with some white wine, green grapes. Interesting though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head. I didn’t really get the bottom so... The aroma is tart, vinegar, funk, sweat, sour citrus and wood; somewhat assertive. The flavor is more subdued; tart, vinegar, sour citrus, wood, funk, sweat; surprisingly very drinkable.
