4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.375l - This is the finest lambic Iíve had. Still had the wild, uncontrolled power thatís a hallmark of the style, but this was far more approachable. Sour from the nose on, but didnít crush you.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 375 ml bottle. A hazy dark golden beer, with a large, frothy/fizzy, mostly diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain/bread), heavily yeasty (cheese, wet earth/mold/mushrooms, barnyard, leather, dust), with notes of wood and citiric fruits, with a white wine hint. The flavor is moderately sweet, heavily acidic. Medium body, Watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry and long finish with light bitterness. Oustanding rendition, uber-yeasty, yet not super estreme. Drinkable, to the contrary. Great for a hot summer evening.

Taste is green apple, citrus, light oak, light barnyard, and very sour. Medium thin very tart mouthfeel. Probably the most sour Gueuze Iíve ever had but very, very delicious.

Bottle. Heavy sourness up front with light fruit notes, peaches in particular. Invigorating funk. Cloudy copper-amber with a thin patchy head. Very strong lemon acidity. Not much depth but very nice even if the palate is a bit harsh.

Cloudy yellow orange. Smell is sour and funky. Flavor is huge vinegar and is quite sour. Not much more to say about this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle purchased over two years ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($7.99). Finally opening this on a hot summer day! Pours a hazy amber hue with a thin layer of white-ish foam. Aroma of burnt pasta (?!), barnyard, lemon, wood, soft cheese, leather, with some sweet honey. Flavor of citrus-y balsamic, tart lemon peel, sour unripe green apple, funky yeast, and wet oak. Significant sour bite here, but not overly so and with a hint of sweetness at the end. Nice complex gueuze. (701, 711)
