A Mes rate:
Draught at the brewery during the Toer de Geuze. The real deal from the Sudden Death folks. Almost orange colour. Hay, lots of yeasty and earthy character, citric (lemon) and lots of barnyard. Very dry, quick finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation 06, 3 years old. Beautiful aroma with lots of fruit (peach, strawberry), tart and wood. Yellow/amber color, almost no head, no lace. Sour, fruity, tart and yet still sweet. Viscous and soft. How is it possible that they make the Xtreme stuff out of this beauty?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Colour is orange, clear, no head, absolutely still. Nose is acidic, with a distinct aroma of apple juice and slight hints of malt vinegar. Taste is acidic, again with lots of apple juice character. Slight sweetness, but not very much. Somewhat one dimensional, but still, better than expected.

Belgian Beer Weekend 2004: Light sour nose, clear pale amber color. Medium sweet apple-like malt body, sour end that dries the mouth. Refreshing, particularly standing in the middle of the Grand Place on a sunny day.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear pale foxy-amber; rather stable rim of white foam. Woody nose, vaguely grapefruit. Taste immediately strikes as light, refreshing-lemony, "lip-smacking" acidity with just a touch of sweetness, reminding of fructose. Woody finish, lemon-scented tea. extremely refreshing, light bodied. Acidity keeps hanging around in the oral cavity. Nice lambic, light, lemony refreshing. But it is not quite what I'd use for blending classical gueuze.
