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 !!!!!

Funky winigronowe w aromacie. Dosc mocno kwasne i taninowe w ustach. Cytryny, winogrona, biala pozeczka. Ciut kiszonki. Wysokie wysycenie.
