3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of tart citric fruits, some barnyard funk, and lemon -- very citrusy nose. Flavour brings out dry lemon, low funky qualities, sour citrus fruits, and yeast. Quite tart and citrusy, with little of the traditional Belgian gueuze qualities. Decent, but leaves much to be desired.

Bottle. Copper pour, very small head. Tardy aroma of horseblanket, acidic fruit and indeed some hops, nice. Taste has sourness, brett, grapefruit, horseblanket, citrus, white grape, light smooth caramel and some vinous warmth in the finish. Great lambic, the hops work really well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

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.

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!
