3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a bubbly white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of musty funk that is backed by a dry green grape note. Flavor starts with sour and dry green grape and is joined by a nice earthy/barnyard funk note.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden straw with some hazing. Decent white head hangs in there for a while. Aromas show citric acidity and just a little earthiness, Taste is dominated once again with a citrus type sourness. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best of the serioud but not too bad all the same.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First Lambic beer to rate, so here goes nothing. I’m comparing this to Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René.... so again I’m a bit unsure about how to approach this rating. Aroma is mostly acetic, with the slightest touch of fruit. The beer appears a cloudy and a bit red, lots of carbonation bubbles, with a small head. Taste is fairly complicated. Starts off sharp and sour, turns a bit sweet, with lots of tingly sour bites throughout each sip. The after taste is mildly sour, with some apple and grape flavours. This beer has about 3 or 4 changes throughout the sip, but is constantly surrounded by sourness. Palate is light and carbonated. The acid gives a tingle to the tongue and mouth. Impressed to try a non-Belgian lambic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml bottle - pours clear golden with a steady white head, full of medium bubbles. tart aroma’s of wood, rice vinegar, and a hint of riesling wine. Light to medium body with a nice kick of freshness and a bitter dry ending (even very dry). Not bas, I miss the grapes a bit... and it’s not a real beer, right?

Sour aoma of grapes, lemon, lacto bacillus. Slightly cloudy light amber with a thin white head. There's a nice bitterness here but the overwhelming flavour is sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast, grains and grapes - nice funky, tart nose. Flavour of yeast, horse blanket, mild white grapes and some white wine like qualities. Complex and yeasty. Very good one.
