UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Had this one two times allready. First time was a small sample from Erwin’s glass at the brewery. Second time we opened a bottle at ’t Schooltje with Carlo and Urbain Nose is rather mediocre, slightly citrus, some exotic fruits. Taste is nice sourness, prunes are not very prominent. In fact it’s more a really good geuze, with a little bit more fruitiness to it. Good job. Looking forward to upcoming batches of this. Update: I really don’t get why the first and second batch are under the same rating. Those are two totally different beers. First one was a real complex geuze with a nice hint of the plums. Now it’s just liquid plum pie... I don’t get it...

wchesser (1244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2014
’14 bottle fresh. Murky orange brown. Smells like some of the oxidized pluots on the top of the Ball jar from when I made some pluot infused brandy a few summers back plus your standard funky wild nose. Light carbonation. Limestone minerality, round and tart but not too sour. Plums not pronounced in flavor but some dry stone fruit elements that give it the perception of sweetness. Chalky tannins with wheat and fruit long after swallowing.

Saeglopur (434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 16, 2014
375 ml bottle from Beergium.
Dark orange, dense hazy body, with a small, creamy, white head.
Aroma is tart and sour, with barnyard, citrus, sour fruits, grapes, must, dough.
Taste is very tart, sour and dry and follows the nose, the plums are noticeable now, but only subtly.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sour, dry and finally with a long-lasting, subtle plum.

Great! While the taste is slightly too tart for my liking, still a really enjoyable, big, complex Lambic! Unfortunately the plums aren’t really distinct, but lots of other sour fruits instead.

A: Smells like a pure gueuze. Hay. Hard to find the plum, but way back. T: Tart, sweet in a strange way probably the fruit. Overall: I like it, but I prefer the Cantillon for the fruit lambics. Well balanced though.

turbothy (1120) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
Sampled @ Brassigaume 2014. Pours a totally opaque apricot colour. Fruity sour aroma. Rather wonderful sweet-sour flavour. Very nice.
