UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 12.7 oz. bottle at BXL East, 2011/2012 vintage. Pours lovely reddish tinted gold with effervescent white head. Aroma of funky horseblanket sourness. Taste is sour and acidic and funky but has an incredibly smooth finish. Excellent gueze. Lovely finish. Really terrific.

Bottle at Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 5th March 15. Aroma, sour, some barrel, citrus. Taste is great and complex, tart apple, clean and fresh, some slight barrel or wood, drinks well with fine, but lively carbonation. Really liked this

I’m not very experienced with lambics, but I enjoy trying everything. 750ml bottle pour shared with a friend. Orange color with a generous light head. Aroma is funky and musty, with some plums and armpit. Taste is quite sour, hints of fruit, granny smith apples, and more funk. Taste shifts as it warms, for this is a complex beer. I understand why many like it, but this isn’t my style.

Quite apple cider and lemony aroma. Sour, lactic ( cheesy) , acid and sour taste with tart notes. Ligth body with quite high carbonation. Aftertaste is complex with sour prominence. Despite the exceptional rating of this beer, I am afraid I do not like it so much.

Vestergaard (617) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours orange-yellow with a short lasting, white head. Aroma has nice, funky, wooden, sour notes. Grassy bitterness, lemon peel, unripe grapefruit, gooseberry and vinegar. Taste is nice, dry and sour, but with lots of citrussy fruits going on. Really good stuff! Crisp body and high carbonation!

Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontinas. 2012/13 batch. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a big white head. Really funky aroma with sharp green apples and a bit of wood in the background. Lively carbonation. Fantastic up-front tartness. Dry. Really one of my favourites.

Bonne acidité qui n’est pas trop agressive. Elle se boit très facilement. Une très bonne gueuze pour découvrir Ce type de bière

Gentle aroma. Generous mouthfeel. Less acid than some other geuzes. That could be a good geuze to start with.

exeter (431) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours a hazy golden colour with a 1/2 head that lasted to the bottom. Not much lacing. This beer is a sour monster, with grapefruit and Granny Smith apple like sourness. After the pucker passes you end up with a salty finish to wash away the sour. Excellent representation of the style.

Caged and corked bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color with an averaged sized head. Citrus, green apples, musty, funky, wood, and some earthiness.
