4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has been and always be my favorite geuze. As I sip the bottle from my hotel room in Brussels, I am reminded how important this beer is to the history of Brussels. The aroma is powerful with hints of lactic and Brett that remind me of all the complexities of this beer. The beer bone dry with a good biting acidity that comes alive with all of the carbonation in the mouth. The brewer closed down in 2003, but opened up and are starting a revival of sorts. They are making a wonderful triple to help get the lambic side of things going again. The color is of straw with lots of effervensce and a slight whippy white head. The taste is amazing with so many layers and depth. There is citrus, hay, wet horse, wool and a soft malt character that is there for those who choose to dig deep into this beer. The finish is dry and grainy/bready with a zesty sour note. It is a must try even if only to keep this tiny brewery alive !!!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromat wyraźnie kwaskowy i wocowy, przywołujący na myśl jabłka i cytrusy. Do tego nieco akcentów beczkowych - drewnianych. Ogólnie delikatny i spójny.
Barwa złocista w stronę pomarańczowej, zamglona. Piana biało - żółta, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i umiarkowanie trwała.
Smak wytrawny, kwaskowy z niewielką dozą słodyczy, nieco ziemisty i lekko alkoholowy. Goryczka symboliczna, delikatna. Średnia do krągłej pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie, nieco szczypiące w język. Wytrawna, kwaskowa i odrobinę alkoholowa końcowka.

Great lambic, lemon yeast aroma, the initial sour notes then get cleaned up by a fruity finish . A fine gueuze .

Back of the bottle reads 14/03/2034.
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a two finger white sustaining foamy head. Stringy lacing slides down the glass nicely.
The smell had a sharp citrus slightly bitter, slightly sweet, decent amount of sour and a super light underscore of earthiness.
The taste was mainly sour but a good sour with the tart there as well. Earthy and somewhat woody sweetness runs into the aftertaste and leaves a quick finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. This would be great on a hot Summer’s day as there’s a nice refreshing quality about it, not as dry as I thought it would be.
Overall, I say this was a wonderful beer as I would definitely have again.
