2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4/III/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - release#4, SLC#1367 whatever that may mean (2014-243) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the bottle!
Clear dark yellow beer, small big bubbled head, actually just some big bubbles floating on top, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very dirty, urine, infected stuff, sourish, overripe to rotten fruits. It doesn’t just smell weird, like the first time I had geuze, but it smells really horrible actually. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, bit lemony, fruity, bit sugary even, which is weird, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: lemon rind, bit nasty, bitter hops, lemony, sour touch. Maybe I’m spoiled because of all the good lambics we have here in Belgium, but hey, if you’re stealing our bugs, then don’t be surprised if we compare them to our own beers as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Garage 39. Lactic, slightly acidic nose, melon, lemon, yogurt. Clear golden color. Lovely lemon and horse blanket flavor, very clean but a bit too sweet. Only lightly sour, crisp and tasty. Good. Would probably be better if ratcheted down a couple degrees.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
That dirty wet towel smell, with a lot of citrus, the look is blonde, the taste is lemon, tart, citrus, sour. The sourness isn’t horribly strong but does leave a good linger after the swallow. Good sour beer.
