3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I just love this style of beer! Well balanced in every way; bitterness, fruitiness, freshness. Modest, but complex and sharp.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Noe sur søtlig duft av frukter og noe gjær. Fin gyllen farge. Lite skum, ring langs kant. Sur smak av frukter som sitter. Kjøpt som Foudroyante Gueuze.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
375 ml bottle at KamaHouse in Tallinn (€ 6), Sept 2014. Pours a clear coppery amber with a big white fizzy head that drops slowly, leaves a thin film and some lacing. Nose is autumn fruits - a bit like apples gone bad or putrid peaches, something dank and dusty, and a white wine acidity. Taste is very syrupy sweet, a lot like apple juice or cider, with a lot of thick sourness, and even a certain sharp bitterness in the finish. Very much like cider with its abundance of carbonation, medium plus body, a very sticky, thick mouthfeel, and dry finish... I dunnooo... Not sure what to make of this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Klar kobberfarget. Tynn skumtopp. Høyt karbonert. Smaker sitrus,eple, malt,gjær, hvitvin, bruspulver. Denne minner meg veldig om smaken fra sånne c-vitamin brusetabletter. Tror ikke askorbinsyre har mye for seg i øl. En grei geuze, men for syntetisk smak etter min mening

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie smród skarpety i octu. Kolor mętny brudny złoty, piana niska, lacingu brak, wysycenie wysokie. W smaku owoce cytrusowe, leciutki karmel, nuty wiśniowe i ogólnie dosyć kwaśne. Gdyby nie smród to byłoby całkiem pijalne ale podejrzewam że to wina danej partii.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murku golden colour. Aroma of wine with a distinguishable funky note. Well carbonated, taste of fruit. Sweet with medium acidity. Good and refreshing, not too complex.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a large creamy white head. Nose is straw, bready malts, mild horseblanket and hints of red berries, almonds and citrus. Taste is grains, bread, wheat, citric acid, sweet nougat and hints of red berries and straw. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but pretty straightforward, a bit sweet and not too impressive. And what’s with adding ascorbic acid? The bugs should do that job...
