3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Colour is pale amber with a big, frothy, white head, disappearing after a while. Surprisingly clear. Nose is wineous and acidic with notes of citrus, grapefruit, green apples, stable, sweaty horse and hints of vinegar and even some smoke. Musty, acidic taste with grapefruit, apricots, barn yard, horse blanket. Harsh but very well balanced. Absolutely magnificent, one of the best gueuzes I’ve tried.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty clean palate. Not quite dry, more acidic, but leaves the palate very bare. Good prickly carbonation, better than I expected based on the thin head. Certainly sour and tart. Sweet, fruity. Very citric. Almost like there’s citric acid instead of lactic. Lemon and orange. Salty. Not extremely funky. Really just tart and crisp. I would have pegged this as a berlinner weisse, not a gueuze. Then again, I have little experience with the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottled, 37.5cl chamgagne-cork. Unclear, orange beer with some clouds and a nice white head. The nose is barnyard, apple, fruit, yeast, cellar and quite sour. Nice flavor with yeast, cellar, citrus and green apples. Quite astringent and fizzy in the mouth, with a long sour finish. Really lovely after 5 Swedish swills. Palate-cleaning.

Bottle, 37.5cl corked. A hazy, orange beer with a white head. Horse blanket, some wheat and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, but the citrus and horse blanket are more evident than the wheat. Astringent, tart and citrusy. Plain lovely, more-ish and refreshing. (080926)

Glowy orange colour with sediment. Medium frothy off-white head. Sweet, tart scent. Fruity. Sour fruit taste with gentle malt forenotes. A real kick of sour. Very nice palate even so, I would have preferred that it be a wee less intense.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 Beautiful dark golden, a little hazy body, creamy white head, beautiful lacing; Incredible nose (as expected), very fine balance between full and fresh aspects, typical Gueuze nose but what makes this one special is a slight touch of fresh meat; very balanced body, it moves pleasantly from on element to the other, lots of very soft sparkles, very soft texture; The step to the acidy finish is very near perfect, aromas are quite full and the body is a little dry, a fine mix of acidity and aroma fades slowly but lasts very, very long. Incredible beer, very, very well made.
