4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy orange colourwith a small white head. Nose is fruity, quite sour and some yeasty must followed by a citrus touch. Flavour is citrus fruit with aggressive acidicy with some barny mustiness. Hints of peaches and flowers before a nice dry finish. The sour fruit is nice and balanced making this a very nice lambic.

(Bottled, 0.375l) Deep golden color with a small, lasting head. Yeast floats around nicely when poured in. Very fruity, mildly tart, not very sour aroma with oaky hints. Slightly sharp and acidic, quite tart flavor with red currant. Medium-bodied palate with low’ish carbonation. Quite a bit smoother with yeast. A very nice, easily drinkable, smoothly balanced gueuze (at least with yeast).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a fizzy white head. Gueze is clear pale amber or yellow-orange. Nose isr brie or cave aged cheese (the stinky kind). Musty. Sharp, sour, and acidic. Grapefruit rind, lemons. Sour raspberries. Cider vinegar. Dry, dusty. A class unto itself. Wouldn’t want to roll a keg out at a frat party.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 12.75oz, no date. Aroma of pears, sour cherries and apples, lotsa barnyard funk, oak, . Pours a hazy golden with a small fizzy fading white head. The cork blew off as soon as I untwisted the wire, and the bottle foamed over. Strange the head isn’t larger. The taste is very tart the the aforementioned fruits, the oak is quite strong as well. There is also a light metallic quality, though it doesn’t detract really from the rest of the flavor. Moderate bitterness shows up 2/3 through into a bone dry, tart finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Corked bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a diminishing white head. The aroma is wood, earth and straw, for me it was reminiscent of walking into a barn. Add some floral and citrus notes. The body is light, with fizzy carbonation. The taste is sour with a lingering, lightly bitter finish. There is some fruit, toffee and earth in the taste, but it’s an uphill battle to find them amidst the acid. It’s not a bad beer, but I’m willing to hazzard the guess that this is an acquired taste.
