3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mostly flat, yellow-orange liquid with just a light sparkle. Classic lambic nose of musty lemons and grapefruit, while the flavor is a bit nutty and only lightly tart, soft, smooth, young-tasting. Not that this needs to be a classic gueuze, but for the price I’d think bigger sparkle and more age would make a bigger impression. Still a fine food beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is cheese, sour fruit, and just plain funk. Flavor starts like a cider with lots of fruit, and finishes with sour funk. OK, but honestly I just don’t get this style.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy straw color with white head. Aroma is heavy barnyard, funk, wet hay, sour. Taste is sour, funk, but way too much vinegar flavor for me. I was happy to try this one, but probably wouldn’t buy again. Maybe some age would do it some good.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour, smell of pear skin, green apple skin, sourness, lemon, chestnut, oak, and funk. The flavor is funky, oak, low sourness. It is slightly watery. Not ht ebest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a few bubbles, but effectively no head. Nose is a bit woody, actually. Taste is quite tart, but with a nice dry crispness. Quite acidic.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled 2012. Minimal pop from the cork. Pours nearly flat, zero head or fizz. Cloudy straw body. Barnyard gueuze funk in the nose; by far the most appealing part of this brew.
Watery taste start to finish. Mostly yeast; lots of bitterness, precious little lambic flavor. No carbonation... Body needs serious work. Come to think of it, this entire beer needs reworking. Avoid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with 2009 on it. Pour is clear and medium gold with little head. Aromas of lemon sourness, oak and coconut from the barrels, nectarine and a little barn funk. Flavor is heavy with tart nectarine and lightly barrel flavored. Very nice feel and palate development.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/1/12. 750mL bottle thanks to nulledge! Hazy golden amber pour with a very loose, soapy off-white head that fades instantly and doesn’t lace. Plenty of funkiness and wood with plenty of vinegar as well. Thin body and flavor with wine dryness and flavors and very light carbonation. Slight funk and lots of vinegar. Eh.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s dead still hazy gold with absolutely no head whatsoever. The nose is lemon peel, acetic vinegar, light cheese and dusty attic. The taste is light wood, dust, sift grape, general rust, dirt. Subdued flavours. Muted mouthfeel, soft palate. Overall, a less than impressive effort. Shame.
