2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Either I got a bad bottle of this., or I am really swimming against the tide. I’ve enjoyed other lambics I’ve had, but this was terrible (maybe it’s just the gueze style I don’t like). This poured a champagne color with little head and some carbonation. Unfortunately, both the nose and taste were a rancid mixture of very sour apples and vinegar. Early on, I kept thinking maybe the sour would be followed by a sweet sensation, a la Flemish Sours, but instead, it just kept getting more sour and acidic. Ended up cleaning the drain.

Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a orange golden color with two finger of white gaseous foam. Lots of complex stonefruit, citrus and straight up cobweb basement funk. Great harmony of flavors with the musty fruit evolving from bright citrus to soft fuzzy peach all the while being wrapped in a funky dusty wet basement complexity. Dry on the finish and a real pleasure to drink !

Never rated this & hadn’t seen it on the shelves for a few years. 2014 375 ml. Red orange pour, low carb. Nose is lemon rind, caramel, slight must. Taste is lemon rind, sweet caramel, some leather. Lots of sweet caramel leading into tart lemon. I’ve never had this aged and have never been a big fan of it fresh. I loved Bierpalieters though so I will definitely age the next bottle of this I come across.

Flaska rose red cafe, brygge. Orange lätt grumlig kulör. Blommig och stallig doft. Citron och hö. Smak av trä, citron, jord, vinäger och halm. En ganska mogen geuze med viss sötma och diskret syra och torr avslutning.

Very nice apple and barn aromas. Very accessible actually despite the significant sourness. Will developed, perhaps not the most woody or complex but I enjoyed it a lot. (375cl bottle from Dekoninck),
