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 !!!!!

Smells fruity. Tastes like bret, fruit, and a fresh hay bale. Medium carbonation. Not a bad beer but I doubt I’ll buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber, big head. Nose is barnyard, moderate acidity, apples. Flavour is hay, brett, apple cider. Finish has light acidity, not t strong. Accidentally left half the bottle out overnight, drank the rest the next evening at room temp, and it was even better. Lambic is somethin’ else.

Golden hazy looks with really big foamy head on top. Aroma has zesty green apples, bitterness and some peppery spices. Taste is zesty at first, lots of green sour apples and hints of vanilla. Mouth feel is crispy but quite drinkable. Excellent beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
375ml green bottle, pours opaque pale amber with medium sized white head with good retention. Aroma of overripe apples, lemon, wood and barnyard. Taste is of overripe apples, lemon, white table grapes and a hint of herbs. Dry and sour with a light sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation and a bitter abrupt finish. Overpowering taste of overripe apples and the aroma has an unpleasant barnyard like character. I generally dislike lambic style of beers, this was no exception.
