3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Bottle (375 ml). Deep hazy golden, small white head. Intriguing aroma with cider-like base of green apples, but some earthy notes of leather and gunpowder. Bone dry and ultra sour, a bit over the top.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Lown and astonishingly lasting white head. Hazy golden body. Medium acidic grape fruit aroma. Acidic grape fruit flavor, agressive taste without being too much. Long lasting nice and bitter aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
this is compared to its brewer’s description. I barely pickup the refreshingly fruitiness. I do get some heavy duty sourness. color was nice. aroma was typical gueze but accented by malt/cider vinegar. couldn’t finish mine, but others who were trying it seemed to really enjoy it and even were reordering it! Had it from a small bottle at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Medium/dark gold color - very cloudy with a thin off-white head. Aroma of old vinegar, rotten apples and barnyard hay. Taste is puckering sour - hard to get past that to the other flavors, though there is a tinge of sweet fruits and some oak at the end. But it mostly just gets lost to me in that rancid acidity.

I love the balance of this beer. It perfectly balances the flavors of the wild yeasts with the base beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 37.5 cL bottle via Lubiere, served just below cellar temp from a tulip glass.
App.: deep straw, clear, full white head.
Aroma: Pungent! Horse blanket funk, spicy and green, sour mustard greens and rhubarb or cherry maybe, phenolic - acetone, magic marker kinda and a light cheesiness.
Palate: medium-full body, light effervescent carbonation.
Flav.: bracing tartness, acetone and horse blanket, spicey, woody, bitter finish.
This is complicated stuff. I need some training to be able to describe and appreciate this type of product. I don’t even know how to rate it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Funky lambic aroma. Flavour is all the sour fruits you can think of, grape fruit, rhubarb, lemon, unripe apples and so on. A bit too acidic.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 Bottle from Uto. Quick rate during the commercial break! Amber with fizzy white head. Vinegar nose with lemon and white grapes to compliment. Taste to match with a finish of strawberries.Loooooooooooovely!
Re-rate - Bottle, again from Uto. I orighinally purchased a bottle of Rose De Gambrinus but as it turned out to be on draught at The Rake, Richard was kind enough to exchange my bottle for one of these instead. Opaque gold with a fluffy white head. Nose of vinegar, yeast, lemon and hay, some honey notes. Tart and tangy with some barnyard funk and a bit of yeast, honey again. Decent palate with a berry/hay finish. Top notch gueuze.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice lambic nose to it, definalyt funky, nice deep golden color, thin mouth feel, prickley on the tonque ,one flavor and one flavor only comes through, sour apple, not at all balanced. Almost astringent. Had I not had better lambics and knew how good they could be this would turn me off to them,

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Funky hardcore lambic aroma. Hazy straw-colored appearance with no head and minimal carbonation in general. Traditional oude gueuze flavor with mouth-puckering acidity of sour green apples and lemon juice. Delicious.
