3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20/07/2013 375ml bottle @ Mad for Beer. Dorata, limpida, schiuma bianca leggera, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di stalla, agrumi, leggero balsamico e botte, non male, leggera nota acetica che pian piano prende il sopravvento. In bocca è acida aggressiva, bella complessa, note di botte, astringenza, agrumata e discretamente secca, leggero acetico. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Non male, ma ho assaggiato gueuze migliori.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tart fruity flavor but a little more sour and standard beer finish than I was expecting. It was very good, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not sure I know the difference between average, good and great.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sour tart aroma. Damn sweet after. Cloudy golden color. Hefe like with champagne like head. Tart but very balanced start with a dry lemon after taste. Incredibly balanced.

Delicious sweet tarty fruit smells. A semi-translucent pearl gold. Tart start with a fizz that gets ya. The flavor fades to a dry earthy grape. Clean and light with an amazing dry finish that still leaves your mouth watering.

Bottle. Pours hazy light amber with stable off-white head. Clear vinous aroma with light fruity notes. Sour, vinous flavour with a lingering rough and vinous aftertaste and a dusty touch. If I didn’t know better, I would swear it was an unblended Lambic. Really good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangy, light amber in colour and a wee bit hazy with a very thin soft dark white head. Noses of cider and fruits. Lightly slick texture with apple cider notes developing a rather strong sour and light sweet taste on the palate. The finish is medium but develops a dryness which lasts long.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark yellow beer with a quite small and white head. The nose of riped fruits, bananas, strong sourness, grapes. Nice, not so sour-attacking aroma. Taste is strongly sour, nice balanceing sweetness, dry earthyness, leather and some grapes. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation. Tastefull and balanced beer, I like this Gueuze.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold. Aroma is sour funky yeast. A good mixture of sour and spiciness. Not overbearingly sour, but just enough. Has a good fruitiness to it. The yeast adds a little spice that separates it from most other lambics. Lots going on here with the yeast profile. A very good sour.

Slightly hazy old gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma is funky wet limestone, sour floral notes, fallen leaves, toast and cereal. Flavor is quite tart up front, vinegar and vitamin c, toast, tart fruit, basement funk and stone fruit. Light in body and dry with a nice and crisp, lightly acidic feel and blanketing, moderate strength carbonation. Damn good.
