4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light gold, with a huge white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Sour, funky, musty notes mix with leather, apple skin and some oak in the aroma. A savoury, leathery flavour up front leads into an intense, refreshing sourness. A touch of oak towards the finish mixes with an almost meaty savoury flavour, with some sour lime coming through at the end. This is an unusual blend of sour and savoury flavours that nonetheless come together quite harmoniously. The sourness gives it a very refreshing feel that is just the ticket on a horribly muggy summer night.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Didnt met expectations, felt bit flat. Some grape, cherry stones, yeast, bit dry wood, light citrusy. Light sweetness with light tartness. Drinkable, but one time try

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beautiful fluffy white head on an cloudy apricot body. The smell reminds me how long it’s been since my last real Belgian gueuze – I’ve been drinking too many of the sour American oak bombs. Lots of old cedar wood, cork, leather. Dry and musty like an attic, not cheesy, but dusty. A slight fruitiness appears through the dust. Peaches and honey. Rather shy on the nose. Flavor is similarly restrained. Dusty green apples with a soft fluffy texture and a friendly sourness. Unlike a Drie Fonteinen or Girardin, my paragons of the style, this is a tamer, lighter, gentler gueuze, perhaps more appropriate for a social gathering, in place of bubbly wine. Enjoyable, but somewhat forgettable.

On tap at Armakeggon 2016. One of the best sours I’ve had, well balanced and supremely well crafted.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #2021. Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Uptown. Pours hazy yellow-orange with a good-sized frothy white head. Aroma is skunked grass, bitter strawberries, perhaps apple. I waiver between a 6-7 for the aroma. The skunked grass is off-putting but the fruitiness buried underneath squirts it up a notch. Taste is bitter hay, lemon, barnyard, unripe strawberry. Very tart, and I can see this being off-putting for some, but I find it fascinating.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
- gelbe Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung
- starke Aromen nach vergorenem Apfel und Trauben verbunden mit einer

- geschmacklich kommt jetzt zu den beschreibenen Aromen noch eine
durchdringende und alles überlagernde Säure
- diese Dominanz verschwindet erst im Abgang und wird durch eine leichte
Fazit: Ganz nettes Geuze, aber diesen Biertyp muss man nicht unbedingt mögen

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Two year old bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange colour with a light beige head. Aroma of rowanberries, apricots, apple cider vinegar, horse and citric acid. Sour flavour of lime, apple juice, barn yard, forest floor and some dry hay. Sour but quite light taste for the style. Has a slick and crisp mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A solid gueuze but less tasteful than expected. Well-balanced and easy-drinking.
