3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. First lambic/geuze ever. Bottle states 5% alcohol instead of the four percent mentioned here. Pours hazy dark golden, bronze even. Little yeast residue. Tiny head that disappears in seconds. Aroma of champagne, unripe red fruits and sour. Taste caught me off guard, but within a minute I got accustomed to the taste and boy it’s good. Hits the palate exactly like champagne. Then, unripe fruits, sourness, dryness and some sweetness comes in. Plenty of carbonation and oily. Very refreshing. Aftertaste is long. Dry and sour. Some sweet and sour remain for a long time and induces excessive saliva build-up. This is a style I’d like to explore.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Geuze non troppo esagerata dal buon equilibrio al gusto, acidula certo ma tratti anche vinosa. Ottima fattura

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
small MF bottle, only 25cl, pours clear copper with minimal white head. Aroma of wood and lots of sours. Tast of light sweetness, lightly bitter, some fruits, sour however somewhat limited in complexity, and slightly metalic, tart, too much vinegar for my taste, and also too sweet,

Picked a nice warm day to drink this one. A little apple flavors (in a good way) and that nice tartness these beers have. Wonderful

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, 06/03/2015, Pours a dark golden amber, thin white head dies to an oily hazy on the surface. Aroma of lemon, crisp apple, pale sour malts, soggy cereal, mild sweetness and hint of mustiness creeping through the finish. Taste initially fruity, apple and citrus, sweet lemon turning tart, sour malts, more traditional lambic quality coming again in the finish. Light, slick body. It is what it is.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
250 ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into a snifter. Pours a clear orange gold with a small head and fine bubbles. Muscat and wood on the nose with some vanilla and cream as well. Average carbonation. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Taste starts out sweet with a tartness playing in the background. Fruit is there for sure: muscat, orange, berry, and some cherry but a little too sweet for the style. Dry finish that has some tartness.
