3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, minimalna.
AROMAT: W każdym innym piwie byłoby to wadą, ale nie tutaj - końska derka lub jak kto woli "stajnia" na pierwszym planie. A poza tym suszone morele, mirabelka, czereśnie, kwiatowość i ziołowość.
SMAK: Wytrawne, nieco cierpkie i kwaskowe, pozostaje na języku.
OGÓLNIE: Specyficzny styl, specyficzne piwo, nie mniej ciekawe w smaku i aromacie. Niestety piwo stosunkowo młode, może dlatego w smaku było uboższe niż leżakowane rok czy dwa lata, nie mówiąc już o 5 latach przydatności, które sugeruje producent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy burnished gold with a tint of orange, and forms a thick, fluffy white head with good retention. Lacing is crazy good. Carbonation runs rampant through the body of this beer, far moreso than any other I’ve seen.
Smell: Mustiness, funk, and bread grains with fuzzy stuff growing on them form the bulk of the aroma, along with some delicate citrus notes that seem like a sour tangerine. There’s also something that reminds me of mown grass, lurking faint and far off in the distance of the aroma.
Taste: This strikes right up front with the sort of sour tang that feels like it is pulling something out of the glands under the corners of the lower jaw. Flavors shift continually as the liquid moves along the tongue, with notes of sour orange and tangerine, ancient library mildew, tall dry grass, and light bread, all tied together in a miasma of sharp, pungent funk. The finish leaves a lingering taste of tart, underripe tangerine and green apple.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, creamy and quite lively with carbonation.
Overall: This is my first foray into gueuze territory, and it may be safe to say I’m hooked. So much yeast character, so little hop influence, such intensity of flavor without sacrificing complexity. This does seem to peg the style guidelines well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle
Clear pale orange beer with big white head. Pouring in the yeast makes it hazy. Aroma has gastric acid, vinegary sourness and barnyard. Pouring in the yeast adds citrusy refreshingness and sweet fruitiness. Flavor is sour with vinegar, limey, apple juicy, lightly wheaty and sugary sweet. Palate is thin with high carbonation. Finish has a quite heavy bite of bitterness. Aftertaste is limey, apple juicy and sour. There’s a dash of gastric acid floating around this beer. Otherwise it’s a well balanced gueuze, maybe a bit too sour.
