3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a small white head.
Aroma is dry, vinegar and apple.
Flavour is acidic at first, then slightly bitter apple, ending in a pleasant sesame like aftertaste. Good stuff!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Hazy orange yellow color with a good lacing white head and great lacing. Nose is pineapple, yarn horse blanket, cheese, tartness, musty attic, and citrus. Taste is the same but the sweet citrus notes really dominate. Mouthfeel is thick, sticky, acidic, tar, and goes down easy. Big fan.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cork labeled 09/06 thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a white head and a golden body. Great lace. Aroma of funk, must, attic, light fruit, floral, honey, soil and library. Taste is sour, tart, lemon, and must, but a lot cleaner than the nose. Dry mouthfeel. with light bubbles. Reminds me that I need to re-rate the black label.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle. Slight cloudy, maybe clear amber with medium to small white head. Aroma is rotten apple with slight sewage and tartness, not that all that apetizing but i will give a little simple because it is a geuze. Sour, dirty, slight sour, sweet, vomitty, i was hoping for more, cherry. Medium body with light carb and tartness. This is not very good at all, much like their kriek. Pukey to be sure.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #1100. 37.5 cl bottle. Poured into a flute a sparkling buffed gold with a holding white cap. Nose is lemon custard, cobwebs, sourdough and pepper. Lovely intermingling of sweet, sour, tart and funky. Light and airy with a soft pucker. Taste is lemon pith and juice with a nice lingering breadiness. Dry finish with a touch of orange peel.

375ml corked and caged bottle via trade with KimJohansen, thanks Kim. In the middle of a big beer related cleaning job in the house and I felt like something special, so why not a yummy gueuze. Popped with a lot of pressure and gushed a bit. Pours orange with a bright white foamy head. Nose is sweet, and sharp with notes of apples and lemon. Taste is quite potent with a hell of a lot kick. Tart and funky. Nice gueuze.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, cork & cage, 375ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Dreamy, tangy beer, for those that believe they do not like Lambic, they really must try this. Probably a little more subtle and behaved than the unfiltered, this is sharp, lemony, bramley apple and citric all in one hit. The flavours never become overwhelming, just a very decent beer.

37.5-cl bottle at Delirium, Brussels. Preferred the black-label version to this in a side-by-side tasting, as this seemed less balanced and with more off-flavors in this tasting. Still a very enjoyable beer, perfect for a long summer evening on the balcony.
