3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, 2012 vintage. Pours out a yellow/orange shade and sports a huge fizzy head that recedes to nothing. Creamy, lemony, slightly leafy aroma with wilder notes coming through once in the glass. Tastes of apple, honey, juicy orange, sourness once these have passed. Spritzy carbonation. Lovely gueuze, almost a shame to drink it now as it will get better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is big yeast and let’s you know what’s coming! The flavour is medium sour, yeasty, with grapefruit citrus. It’s very refreshing which is assisted by the high carbonation. Ideal as a champagne replacement!
