3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 12.7 oz bottle into a Flute glass. Pours a murky orangish yellow hue with a tiny and bubbley white head. Larger bubbles are seen raising to the top of the brew. Aroma is extremely acidic and farmy, with a touch of yeast and mold notes. Flavor is very tart and acidic, while also tasting like the barnyard as well. Semi-woody in certains aspects. Although I can’t drink a lot of any type of Gueze at once, this one is definitely a keeper!

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Maybe I don’t truly appreciate lambics, but this one didn’t do it for me. Body is cloudy yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma is undeniably ’Animal House’ frat basement (Alpha Delta, Dartmouth College, 1963). Flavor is extremely sour, though not entirely unpleasant.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sherberty, yeast and extremely acidic with minor barnyard notes. Flavor is heavily acidic with woody/pit like notes and a beautiful funk. The finish is lovely and extremely dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pous a very cloudy, opaque yellow/hay amber color. The head is respectable within style, although no lacing. The aroma is tart lemons, some barnyard. The flavor is all brett, lemons, some leather, some horseblankets, some barnyard. After it warms, a little bit more of the burnt rubber flavors in there with some acetic (vinegar) type flavors. Not as complex as I’d have assumed (I personally like the cheesy aspects), but refreshing, crisp, tart, and sour. Mouthfeel is certainly acidic. A little on the harsh side for a blended gueuze (almost came across as a straight lambic).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours bright amber into a tumbler. Started to foam up the head of the bottle, but quickly disspated when poured into the glass. Leather and horseblanket aromas. Light bodied and fizzy with tart, sour lemon peel flavors. Dry and lasting sour lactic finish.

Bottle at Dulle Griet.
Orange golden with a little beige head, OK lacings. Aroma and flavor is more fruity and acidic than the average, very complex and drinkable, when you get used to it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle says it has been conditioned for atleast 3 years
Aroma: When cold tart notes come thru. Once the beer warms up the fruity and funky brett notes become apparent
Appearance: Poured slightly cloudy and reddish with a huge white head which did not seem to last too long
Flavor: As expected the first flavor is nice tart wallop. Once I enjoy the pucker power the berry like and citrusy flavors help make the tarness more complex. As the beer warms up the indescribable funkiness from the brett seems more apparent
Overall: WOW! I have enjoyed 2 excellent sour beers in one day.... A delicious lambic with complexity behind the tartness to make me want to take yet another sip... oh my! my tongue is happily retired for now

From 750. Poured orange with a white head. Nose was sour and earthy. Flavor was complex and hard to get a handle on. Earthy, moldy, woody with a bit of pepper and sour finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin quickly diminishing head. Sour fruit aroma but not overpowering. Kind of soft and mellow. Some honey and apricots in there also. Golden orange in color. Fizzy in the mouth. Sour, tart fruit with a strong biting bitterness. Little blackberry in there. Strong sour and puckering finish. Not really my style.
