3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Liquor Loft. Big funky bandaid aroma with citrus and vinegar. Taste is tart acidic mix with citrus, apples, butter and cheese. None of that sounds good - but it is. Vinegar sourness and wood in the finish. Nice little sipper.

375ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, light amber color with a white head. Aroma is sour, funky, citrus, lemon. A little light on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sour, but not as sour as it smells, lemon, a little bread, with a tart, dry finish. Pretty tasty. A good beer to introduce someone to sours.

Bottle (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting)
Lovely woody gueuze aroma. Buttery in the body, woody resins too. Very crisp, but a bit sweet too. Classic gueuze, but a bit smoother and buttery. Finish leaves me wanting more.

Mild carbonation, light spritzy at first, then turns very dry. Flavour has good citric acid, dry bretty, very mild lactic. A very fresh-feeling gueuze. Lovely woody elegance in the finish. Lovely gueuze.

Bottle from Sam’s, pricey little bastard but what a classy label. Pours bright, hazy golden with orange hue. Nose of lemon oil, leather, barnyard, green apple peel. Taste similar, but more citric. Palate a bit thin, and the taste hits a slightly thin note as well. Still, quite good.
