3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Backlog) Bottle. Was really looking forward to this after having the black label. Brown pour with tan head. Musky, funky, apple and barnyard funk/cheese like aromas. A little of of dark malt, hint of tart and fruit flavors, missing that strong sourness, finishes light and drinkable.

750ml bottle from Countbeer, many thanks Camiel. Deep golden color with huge white head. Tart aroma with barnyard, red fruits. Taste, tart apples, lemon, some fruitiness, mild sweetness in background. I am missing complexity in this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 375 ml, corked and caged. Into a tulip, ABV 5%
Clear body, deep orange in colour, with a small white head on top. Average retention, light lacing.
Nice aroma, fruity, red riped apples, some sugar.
Good taste too, mildly sour, with grapes and a bit of wood, a bit of medicinal bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, high carbonation. Quite tart and dry.
Overall a nice one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
36.5 cl bottle courtesy of Erzengel, Thanks. Pours a copper color with a small white head that gradually recedes to a fine film. The aroma is moderately funky with sour grapes, salt water taffy and green apples. The taste mirrors the aroma with lightly sour apples, grapes and caramel. The palate is light and silky smooth and the carbonation is soft. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very enjoyable gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Licht troebel, oranje goud. Witte kraag. Vrij zoete gueuze met behoorlijk wat caramel. Daarnaast ook de zurige stoffigheid die kenmerkend is voor de gueuzes. Deze is lekker, maar niet een van de besten.
