4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ CPK. Deep amber color with a big, eggshell white head. The nose is pressed moldy lemon, light yeast, funky orchard fruits and pleasant sugar cookie. The taste is lightly funky green apple and lemon peel, some light cheese and yeast. Dried dusty wood and bright citrus concentrate. Pleasantly light and deft. Active carbonation. Overall, quite refreshing and most quaffable. I like.

Bottle to glass. Looks good; orange with nice carbonation, but not overly heady. Smells nice; geuzy. Tastes pretty good, although I wish it had a bit more funk and complexity. Good on the palate. Behind Cantillon and Drie, but ahead of most of the rest.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Lambertseter enjoyed at home
Straw yellow hazy, white head. Smells of funk, musty barnyard, wildberries and mint. Taste is light sweet, medium to heavy sour of lactic acid, green apples and unripe berries. Some very light hints of bitter dry green apples back on the palate. Ligth body, lively carbonation, watery bubly texture. A very nice gueuze, maybe a bit on the kind side, but still quite complex

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010/11 vintage. pours a golden blonde with hints of orange. slight haze. fizzy head that retains fairly well. very bright and vivid on the nose. lots of lemon zest and oak. funk hides a bit beneath. very tart and sour. starts out more tart up front, and a deeper sour through the finish. typical lemon up front with a deep oak and funk. sour green apple emerges towards the finish. lots of carbonation, a bit too much at times. some dryness. very young but good. i am curious what age does to this. i can see it drying out a bit, maybe some more oak coming out.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, excellent brew! Poured cold with a large, off-white, foamy, frothy, thick head that lasts a while and lots of lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with a load of tiny bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, sour, bread dough, malt - a fresh and clean quality. Flavor’s like nose, fresh and clean, very dry with bitter and carbonic working very well with each other. Back of the tongue is left with an astringent feel. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, with a slight dry champagne flavor and again very clean. Outstanding.
