4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a straw-colored yellow/golden hue, with an ample white head. The nose shows decided Brettanomyces character, along with a less aggressive level of acidity. As the sample opens up, a musty note also comes through, perhaps from the corked packaging. Together, the combination is utter and absolutely pleasing. The palate shows a lactic tart note up front, followed by some pleasing grassy/hay/farmhouse Brett character, and an absolutely bone-dry finish. The melange of pleasing flavors and aromas is outstanding. Carbonation is assertive, but not overly so, supporting the aromas and flavors, rather than detracting from them. The finish is nicely tart, leathery, and dry. Overall, an outstanding example of the style, even if it is widely available.

Évidemment une excellente bière, pas de surprise ici. Arômes de pêche et de nectarines mûres, en plus des classiques pommes vertes typique de l’acidité qu’elle promet. Rien de trop décapant au palais, goût qui s’estompe rapidement en laissant un arrière-goût floral.

Pours clear yellow, white head quickly disappear. In aroma acidic notes, stable, citrus, lemon. In taste similar to aroma, its far more sour than normal version, tart, very dry. Low-medium body, fizzy carbonation. Well made gueze for a reasonable price. Good for start with oude guezes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Green bottle (Bottled: LH08NGC), corked and capped. Nose is sharply tart and lightly metallic, pours rich orange-golden with heavy and noisy carbonation, big soapy white head. Taste quite sour to start, utterly bone dry, lightly metallic with lemony fruit character, a little green; lactic is a little light but of high quality and accompanies a nice bready character. A little more fruit as it warms, full and crisp body, very fresh and lively, clean; some hay revealed, wood, dash of pepper and cobweb. Sourness calms down quickly and is very easily acclimated. Champagne-like and very easy-going, classy, really gains in character with volume as the buried nuances become more apparent. I could drink this every day, with most meals. [2015.04.17: 3.7]
PS - Burps taste like strawberries!
