4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful pale orange colour with fluffy white head. Citrusy sorbet tart and wood in aroma. Earthy flavour with light gastric juice along with gentle acidity but still loaded with funkiness. Really nice mouthfeel with fluffy, porous feeling from the gentle natural carbonation. Bit bitter in the end.

Orangish pour. White head. Lots of cheese and wood in the nose with some fruit and tons of sour funk. Flavor is sour, lemony, cheesy and a bit of sweetness mixed in. Nice brew. Glad to try this one for sure.

(75cl bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) large white head that mostly dissipates, atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, barnyard/funk, some lime/lemon, dirty sock. Taste is medium sweet, barnyard, cheese/funk. Effervescent light-medium body, light acidity.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is most reminiscent of Hanssens with lots of cheesy, funk. The flavor shows Hanssens funk, Drie Founteinen citrus rind and Boon’s sugar water. Spritzy, thin body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent deep golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh grassy tartness and lemon citrus with a touch of funk. Starts with good fullness and a lot of pale malty sweetness for the style before a clean, slightly puckering citrusy finish. Full bodied and a little sweet for the style, but has nice tart balance and oaky complexity. An enjoyable gueuze.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (thanks Mes). Was excited to try it, but was a little underwhelmed. Perhaps it was the age, or perhaps the blend wasn’t right, but i fund this quite sweet, flat and a touch dull. Some effervescent sourness, and funky complexity, but not enough. Not very assertive or balanced. Drinkable though.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of MrChopin. Great funky sour nose, with barnyard and horse blanket, tons of Brett and a light hop presence. Citrusy. Light amber hazy body with a large frothy white lacing head. Medium thin body with lively carbonation and a chalky finish. Moderate bitterness with huge sour funky flavors throughout and into the after with a chalky end. Terrific gueuze.

Bottle at RBESG grand tasting. Cloudy copper lasting beige head. Lovely lambic aroma with some farm yard. Sweet in mouth. Too sweet actually. Some lemon on finish. Good aroma though.
