3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store during Zwanze Day 2012. Pours hazy light orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is tart and sour lemon with a touch of white wine vinegar, and a bit more bread malt than I am used to in most sours. The flavor is not super sour, but has some nice tartness and funk, with lemon peel and the malt a bit more balanced than on the nose. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and along tart and lightly malty bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle (label states 5,3% ABV). Clear orange pour with a transient loose white head that reduces to a firm collar. Nose offers fresh apples, light barnyard, oranges, citrus, light malts and musty sweaty socks. Palate is tart light and refreshing with funky citric moderately sour flavours that do not grate and no bitterness. This is a fine gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale orange pour with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is ruined by the choice of a green bottle as it is totally skunked with a hint of candied stone fruit. The flavor is still there with that fruit and funk making for a nice tart sour beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Funky barnyard notes, lemon and garden apples in aroma at first. After that the sour elements take charge for awhile and they’re accompanied with some earthy and wooden notes too. Really, really nice so far. Wooden oaky tart notes in taste, sour fruityness and funky stable notes mixed with lith bit of floral notes later on. Dry white whine grape, and thus this feels a bit champagne-like from time to time. Apples and vinegar mixed with bitterness in aftertaste. Good one.
