4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2003 Bottle - Courtesy of one kick ass trader, thanks!!! ad to work at the cork for a bit, but I guess thats just the price you pay for a 7 year old gueuze...Opens with a pop and only a fair amount of head rising up the neck, but you bet you ass we were prepared for 10x worse...Pours a hazy golden with a large eggshell head that dissipates...aroma is just mouthwatering, lemon, dust, earth, tannic oak and massive acidity...flavour is similar, lemon, dirt, grain...finish is lingering acidity, not a hint of vinegar, just intensely sour...pricky carbonation initially in the glass, but after 15-20 minutes it’s almost still...I would love to be more descriptive, but I think I lack the vocab and palate to describe everything...I guess the only way I can describe it adequately is that if you dream about what your perfect notion of a gueuze tastes like, this is probably as close to that idea as you can get...Thanks again mate!!

From Bottle @fonefan gueuze tasting Ulfborg, thanks to fonefan - june 24th 2016. Pours a hazy orangy with a big, off white head. Aroma has - oh jeez - lots of similarities with girardin: Smooth, balanced, moldy, light tartness, green apples, stone fruits, grapes. Incredibly balanced, complex acidity, cheesy. Taste is tart, smooth, balanced dry, sour. Wow! High carbonation and that fluffy old gueuze-body. Yes! Almost as good as Crianza Helena!

Bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015. provided by bart. thanks again! poured an beautiful hazy dark golden colour with a medium seized white head. the smell has a awesome blended mixture of citrus, lemon zest, funk, barnyard, wet wood, and some spiced yeast, wich could be from the girardin. it’s sounds so easy. but this was by far the best smelling lambic that has made it into my nose! taste has again that real citrussy character, with old dusty grains, wood, tart funk, some spiced peppery yeast. that typical "horseblanket" kind of feeling, just so so good blended and age to perfection. smooth as silk with a perfect acid sour finish. just the perfect geuze! so so lovely
