4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker golden orange color with a thin white film of head that falls to a bubbly collar leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is very funky and sour. There’s a nice balance of barnyard and fruit skins. The bright fruit is nice for this being a standard gueuze. The flavor is definitely more dank and funky than I was expecting. The fruit skins are really nice there is a good dry sourness to go with the dusty barnyard. The finish is surprisingly juicy and not sour at all. The mouth feel is a little lacking. It’s a bit syrupy and under carbonated with a lingeringly juicy fruit skin on the aftertaste. It’s an interesting beer for sure, but just wasn’t what I was looking for in a solid gueuze.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden yellow colour. Slight round of white froth. Citruses, vinegar, horseblanket, hay in the aroma. Sour, crisp beginning. Hints of vinegar, leather, wood in the middle. Apricoty notes in the end. Finish was more citrussy without the yeasty bottom. Bit more sweet and apricoty with the bottom. Sourness was not overwhelming. Rather well balanced. Refreshing gueuze.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Unclear golden-yellow or honey color with white, fine and elegant head. Pretty delicate aroma with wild nature: acid-fruit tones, slightly citrus, pear, a little hay from meadows, wet skin, oak. Taste: very complex, layered, sparkling acidity, lemon, pomelo and grapefruit, bitterness of oak, a bit sweetness of a ripe grapefruit, dry, great balance. True masterpiece.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 375ml bottle from trade with SlovakSniper. Thanks man. Drank this one as a sign of support to Belgium. Heart and thoughts going out to them on this sad day... Aroma: green apples, lemon, citrus, hay, a tad dusty. App: cloudy golden with medium white head and good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light body, light sweetness, moderate carbonation, light sweetness and lingering dry light bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. I find it way better than the white label. Also compared to other gueuze I find it way less dusty or barnyard. Different... And I like it. I think for someone starting drinking lambics, this one is a good starter since it?s easy to drink since it?s well balanced between the sweetness and the acidity. Nothing really stands out. Really well made.
