4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This pours out with a slightly hazy orange body that practically glows in the glass. A light white head forms and then fades to a mist resting on top, and at the sides of the glass, soapy bubbles remain. The aroma is striking. It is incredibly sour with layers of rotten apples, unripe pears, cheese rind, and pepper. Nice tart flavor is puckering. Lemons, oak, acidic, and a slight bitterness in the finish. Perfect body with a lingering aftertaste. Pretty much amazing.

Personally my favorite gueuze. Sour, yet balanced and complex beer. Marveously refreshing. Beautiful beer to age.

15cl at the Ghent Beer Festival in 2014. In the glass one gets a lovely golden look. A very sour beer, even for a gueuze style. The finish is very nice. A genuine, great, tasteful beer of Girardin.

Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Smell has a soft sweetness to it. Taste is dry and tart but with a soft and lasting finish.

Bottle to chouffe glass. Orange color. Minimal head. Maybe a little ring. Sour and fruity aroma. Taste follows. I’m getting lots of tart apple. Finishes dry.

Bottle at home. Smells of fresh apples, some sourness there too. Color is orange with a nice bubbly head. Taste is dry, acid and a little bit less sour than other gueuzes. Good one!

Frankly, I was pretty disappointed by this. Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontinas. Poured surprisingly clear, with some floaties in the bottom. Long lasting white head that stayed on the sides of the glass. Overly sweet for my liking, changing how the sourness came across. Citrus flavours. Who knows, maybe it wasn’t the best bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375l bottle. Hazy dark golden body, white head. Aroma of mostly champagne-like yeast and brett, but it also has some fruity notes and some leather. Taste of grapefruit, apple cider and wood. Sour and dry at the same time. I liked the white label more, but this one is also nice.

The aroma has grapes and lemon zest and the first sip is a bit of a shocker. Quite bitter like citrus fruit rind. I’m not the biggest lambic guy around, but this one is def worth a try. Really unique. It’s white label brother was easier to drink and a bit more enjoyable for me, but both were something different for me. Thanks to Lagzi Lajcsi for sharing!
