4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Undeservingly, this is one of the lesser known gueuzes. The first sip fills your mouth with the intense sourness I love about gueuze. After that you get a long and aromatic aftertaste. Brilliant.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2010 Vintage. 375mL bottle at DHVL, pours a fairly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is very feint and subtle, with feint funky notes as a little citrus zest. Flavour is not very complex for a gueuze, within sour funky light fruits, and some intense citrus. Not the best gueuze out there, with a low complex, citrusy palate. Not so good.

Bottle at De Heeren. Hazy golden yellow body, thin white froth, spotty lacing. Nose is sharp with lemon, must, cheese, and lactic notes. Flavor is similar, fairly uninspired, but adequate. Medium bodied, fairly acidic, somewhat thin in places.
