3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Dunbar. Pours hazy tiny burnt golden with a small frothy offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty, tiny fruity and slightly funky with crackers, biscuits, cereal, lemon juice, pears, hay, dry soil, leather, barnyard, lemon zest and hints of rubber. Taste is tiny sour, tiny bitter, slightly malty, tiny fruity and slightly funky. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, very tiny tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, tiny sour and tiny bitter with bread, cereal, lemon juice, leather, hay, minerals, barnyard and lemon zest. Kinda cool but not very distinguished...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[My bottle (375ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] 2006 vintage! Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma, funky and sour along with a bit of cheese and some light tart citrus. Flavour: Whoa, sharper and more sour then expected with a long finish -- I wonder if it’s gotten more sour with age. Average to medium bodied. Different and pretty great. Thanks Dany!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle, 2012 vintage, thanks Henrik! Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is funky, acetic, lemon, oak, familiar lambic funk. Medium to heavy on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is lightly tart, some malty sweetness, maybe a little caramel, a little nutty, some oak, some tart funkiness, a hint of booze, with a light funky finish. Interesting. Smell is very familiar lambic, but the flavor is very different.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
woody, raisin, golden, hazy, minimal head, medium sourness, lightly bitter, soft carbonation, astringent. As a big fan of the constituting beer styles you ask yourself is this more than the sum of the parts? I think not. The geuze element loses some of it’s freshness and dryness and the tripel only surfaces at the very end, with an unconvincing hoppy bitterness. Tasty beer, but in the end not as good as a 3 Fonteinen geuze. Need to try the tripel used one of these days.
