3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Utobeer, I think. I keptthis for ages waiting for the right moment. I love gueuze but know that it will normally fall into the 3.8-4.2 range for me as the sourness makes it too extreme for me. Beautiful amber colour, with thin ring of off white head. Sour funky aroma. Really funky actualy. Sharp in mouth. Lemon juice and more funkiness in mouth. Sharp funky lemon finish. Pretty extreme to be honest, very acidic. I prefer Girardin and Boon to this. Still a lovely example of this limited beer 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. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. (060824)
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)

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 (1-14-06, 1.5L bottle) Did not take notes, but no question I enjoyed this a heck of a lot more than 3.7 -- rating adjusted upward accordingly.
(2-8-04, 1.5L bottle) Cloudy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is barnyard vinegar, light gym socks. Taste is vinegar, fruity -- not overly sour. Finishes acidic sour, vinegar. Light-medium body. (7/4/8/3/15)

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2005 Hazy orange-amber colour with white head. Clean lambic aroma is mainly leathery, with just a hint of cheesiness. Very tart palate, aggressive, some stank feet, apple, lots of leather and a fair amount of barrel character. Body is spritzy, moderate. Finish is leathery, with a woody dryness and a kiss of sweetness right at the end.
