2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden no head. Dry and tart with a waxy body. Very old stinky aroma. A bit funky and sour and not in a delicious way.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is the best quality of this beer: very powerful and pleasant. No head. Very soft carbonation. Compared to ( at least most ) other 100% lambiek gueuzes, this is noticably the most sour one. Complexity and aftertaste are there but require some "active" tasting, you really need to let it flow over your tongue. For me my least favorite old gueuze. Still a very good beer though.

0,375 bottle. Golden yellow colour. Quite high head, which disappears quite quickly. Aroma already in the nose then poured out into glass. Peachy, cheesy notes. Grass, vinegar, hints of flowers. Sour, woody at first. Hints of vinegar, apples, peach in the middle. Spicy and crisp finish. Oakiness and apples in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced gueuze. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! (6:3:7:3:14=3.3)
Extremely sharp aroma, almost vinegary. Extremely sharp taste, but very nice apricot still remains. Sour dominated, but deep down there’s a fullness in the wood esters that makes you love it!
Rerate: 375ml bottle (?, ?) (7:3:7+:4:15=3.6+)
Very nicely mellowed. Lovely apricot. Sourness still there. of course. Dang, magnificent, Apricot all over the finish. Aging worked wonderfully.

BB 2034, shared by Mart. Almost clear amber beer, no head. Nose is tart, fruity, apples, sharp. Flavor is fruity, mango, woody, sharp tartness, balsamico. Very sharp, has a nice fruityness to it, but damn it’s sharp.
BB 2027, shared by Phil. Clear amber, no head. Nose is less fruity, but still tart and sharp. Flavor is tart, apples, lots of wood and balsamico. Still sharp, but slightly more mellow. Not quite my cup of tea, but interesting.
