3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a fluffy white head leaving a little lacing. Aroma is strawberry yogurt, white wine and vinegar. Taste is unbelievably sour to start but your palate adjusts after a few sips. Vinous and tart. Finish is lightly Brett with a lingering sweetness on the finish. Palate is medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Not too dry. Very happy with my first gueze experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle reading 2011/2012. After uncaging, cork shoots itself into the ceiling and the beer proceeds to gush a third of the bottle into the sink (I’m getting better and opening beers in the kitchen). Appearance: hazy light gold with a lot of rocky white head that doesn’t stick around for more than a minute or two. No real lacing. Aroma: tart lemon; musty; horse blanket funk (starts off very prominent, but dials itself down in short order to just play a supporting role). Taste: lemon, tart (but pretty restrained), somewhat funky. Surprisingly refreshing. Palate: light body, effervescent carbonation; crisp, refreshing. Overall: a different beast of a lambic than Cantillon, but fully delicious in all regards.

An excellent lambic! Only got to have a taste of it at a local bar, but it was well worth it! Just attempting to break into the lambic/sour craze, so would love to try it now that I am in love with these styles!

Hazy light orange, it looks delicate; minimal head; aroma is apples, funk and zest; taste is uncompromisingly sour, apples, white grapes, white wine; ok, but I didn’t find it as compelling as the 3 Fontainen or Boon examples.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange’ish copper color with one finger head which rapidly dissipates. Aroma - lots of farmyard funk, yeast, white grapes(?), sourness. Taste - sour with some sweetness underneath, tart apple, white grape juice, yeast and a touch of funk to finish it off. Somewhat oily on palate, full- bodied with a long finish.

Det här var en riktig höjdare enligt min mening, smaken var kraftfull med toner av plommon och syra. Kroppen och balansen var i toppskick vilket höjde hela upplevelsen ett par snäpp.

Very good gueuze, I’m reconciled with gueuze style! :)
A pale ambered beer with a soft white head.
On the nose white grape and yeast aromas.
Pretty sour with some sweet tasting notes.
The finish is a bit dry and acidic.

375ml bottle, provided by Northern Monk Brian. Cheers! Murky, dark orange. Glossy, tiny bubbled, lasting, nearly white head. Cider apple ice-lolly. Bay leaf. Light pepper. Taste is spicy dry, with a sourness that’s fairly restrained, really. Palate is perfect. Champagnesque crispness. Finish is dry and sour. Very nice.
