3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Fully hazy orange-ochre beer, no trace of a head. Very slightly smoked, like a lightly smoked German beer from the lagertank. Sweet, liquorice, hay, garden herbs aromas. Worts taste, very young, cloverflowers; surprisingly little sweetness in the taste, rather grainy (milk-ripe wheat). On the lips, however, already some lemon. Reasonably full-bodied, a bit chewy, ending drier and lighter. Typical young, even worts-like lambic, exhibiting both signs of "usual" beer, as from spontaneously fermenting beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tour de Geuze 2007, draught at brewery. Superb full bodied lambic, tart but not sour, really refreshing. Amazingly competent given that it seems 99% of this breweries beer is fermented in metal conicals with a spade full of wood chips for flavour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 This lambic was about a year old, so I’ll rate it as jonge lambic. Litre swing top bottle, poured by the friendly brewer from one of his wooden casks. Faded orange color, absolutely no head. Light citrus and raspberry aroma. Very pleasant but not as assertive as many other lambics. Medium bodied, but still a touch of wateriness. Very soft taste with just a touch of sourness. Citrus rules, but there are also other flavors. Some wood, milk, butter, grapes, raspberry. The complexity is there, but there could be a touch more character. Nevertheless a treat and a really great beer.
Sample tasted in august 2012: Vinegar in the aroma. Traubenzucker. Sour, sulphury flavor.
