4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Awesome! Pours with a quickly dissipating white head and a golden crystal color. Aroma is very complex, with notes of lemon-acidity, apples, must and hay. Taste is sour on the sides of the tongue, bitter up front with steely apples as the backbone. Great lively mouthfeel with lingering tartness. Overall a very great beer in a very great style.

Out of a bottle in Brugge. Beautiful fruit and sour up front. Hazy gold with no head as expected. Taste is tart and fruity. Crisp, dry finish.

Bottle 0.375l. Pours almost clear golden with white head. Aroma is tart, funk, white wine, lemon. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, heavy sour, some lemon, apples, white wine. Aftertaste is acidic, slightly sharp, subtle bitterness. Excellent. Sour but with so much flavour in the background.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear gold with a small white head of foam. The aroma is funky grass and a touch of skunk. The taste is dry, tart green apple. Medium body with medium carbonation. An alright gueuze.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fully traditional geuze made from wort by, I believe, Lindemans and Girardin which Hanssens has spontaneously fermented at their own premises. Orange blonde colour, spritzy body like any good old geuze should have, off-white, stable head, very funky aroma, horseblanket, lemon peel, hay, old sherry, sweat, sulphuric accents, ’barnyard’ taste, sour in a well-balanced way, very funky, dry acid finish. Clearly a geuze with its own character.

Amber beer with a small but stable white head. Very nice complex aroma, sour but still mild lambic. Full body, very complex sour, but mild, flavour. Nice balanced gueze. Very nice beer. (Corked Bottle 75cl)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Citrus, stale almost musty aroma. Pours with a thin white head, which soon disappears. Despite this, the carbonation is fairly lively. Yellow-orange in colour. Taste is amazing: initially sharp and acidic, citrus fruit with a little balance of wine-gum sweetness. The mustiness is also there. Lively on the palate after the initial spasm of your tastebuds with a nice well-balanced mouthfeel.
Overall, an uncompromising gueuze but a real stunner. Great.

Tasted in long stemmed tulip glass. Keeping it honest, this is my first lambic to taste. Color is light amber, with very light body and medium high carbonation, the very light body makes the head almost instantaneously vanish.
Aroma is wonderful, hints of winey character with lemony, maybe ginger notes, you can smell some funk but its tamed. Taste is sour and acidic, refreshing, gratifying, complex. I’ve read that lambics tend to smell like...barns but this one does not particulary. Reminds me of some champagne i drank a while ago. Not the kind of beer that i love or that i would drink everyday but this is indeed a wonderful beer worthy of respect.
