2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Certain for a fact I had this during Toer de Gueuze. Cask, served flat, very hazy, metallic aroma with some sulfur and wheat. Taste, very sour, vinegar, lemonade and a little bit of cheese. Of the Jonge Lambik, this doesn’t rate too high for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 Blend of wort from other lambic brewers (Hanssens doesn’t make lambic wort themselves) fermented at Hanssens and the basis of their kriek and geuze. Warm orange golden colour, quite ’neig’ character, very estery and fruity, lemon, orange, vinegar acidity, sharp but refreshing with a long finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Hazy yellow with a small off-white head and a light ring of foam. Aroma is buttery with some white wine, hay, grassy and cheesy. Taste is also of hay with light funky, buttery notes, some residual sugars, grapes and grassy notes. Light body. Flat. Dry finish. Decent unblended lambic, but a tad too buttery for my liking. Still quenching.
