   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
UXO (591) - CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours hazy pale gold with a short-lived finger of white champagne-like head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is funky horse blanket, tart citrus, pineapple, woody and herbal. (9/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate tart, very mild bitter. (9/10) Light bodied, prickly carbonation, clean finish. (4/5) Very little hop character, but that’s not a negative for this style as far as I’m concerned. Tart and funky, with a crisp highly carbonated texture. A pleasant gueuze, if not particularly complex. I’d drink this any time it was offered. (16/20)

lownote (178) - USA - MAR 26, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow with a tiny white hint of a head. Aroma is funky. Pretty vinegar like. Taste is likewise. Pretty intense. Citrusy line fruit flavors, not sure if that’s from the sour or the hops. It’s all kind of mashed together. Very sharp and fresh. notice some floral on the third sip. Really light and bubbly mouth. The hop bitterness lingers at the end.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours hazy medium gold with a small white head. Aroma blue cheese funk, dry hay, wood, a bit of citrus zest blend. Palate has lightly sour lemony acidity, a bunch of Bretty funk, orange juice hints, really woody oak notes, grassy and slightly herbal; maybe a bit of spruce character. Aftertaste is really dry and woody with hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation. I expected more hop character than this, I guess the bottle was not as fresh as it could be. Very dry and cheesy lambic with hop accents. Not bad, not world class either, fresher hops might’ve kicked it up a notch.

Jow (2404) - New York, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy golden orange with small sudsy head. Lambic funk soon as you pop top also some grass and tropical fruits. Tastes of roasted pineapple, apples juice, grass, marijuana, quite funky, touch cheesy. Tart and palate coats the mouth.

Arve_Christian (3470) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, 2014 october release. Clear golden color, some foam. High aroma intensity; stable, high yeast influence, autumn leaves. Medium body & complexity. High sourness , some bitterness- balances good. Very enjoyable- but where are all the hops? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

37,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours slightly hazy orange to amber with a modest off-white head. Nice fruity and funky aroma with sour berries, barnyard and wild yeast. Moderate sweet with nice funky flavours and acidity don’t know where the hops went? Refreshing and delicious!

Hallstein (200) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2015
Aroma of sour apricot, grapes and floral note. Nice mouthfeel with flavors of sour apple, pear, vanilla, apricot and peach! Amazing dry and sour finish. The oak is not very prominent, but the 12 different hops definatly are! Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
