4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle pours a hazy orange color with a 2 finger white bubbly head that dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing. Aroma is plums and lemon with hints of yeast. Taste is a tart fruit and sour lemon with a light hop and very dry lingering finish. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. A nicely done lambic that is definitely for those who like a tart and sour brew.

Bottle 750ml 2013-2014 vintage. Pours a salmon pink with small head. Highly aromatic with plums, flowers, light farmhouse and yogurt. Taste is very sour: lactic and citric. Plums are well represented and I also get grapefruit and bitter citrus peel. Light bodied and dry. Very good lambic fruit.

Opaque, dark orange, minimal tan head quickly disappearing, aromas of yeast, plums, peach. Medium sourness. Nice sweetness. I am not a fan of gueuze and lambic but it is a very well-crafted beer.

9/7/2014. 2013/2014 batch. 12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Funky, fruity aromas with apricots, plums and hints of spices. Tart and dry, malty flavors, fruit showing well, perfect balance and a long sour finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cave la Bulles in Paris. Poured in my hotel room in Bruges. Pours murky orange color with a small white head that recedes quickly. Big time aroma of apricots, sweet plums I guess, and lots of funk here, wheat malt, tartness. Flavor follows with a sweet punch of apricot and plum, sourness, sweet wheaty malts, juicy, not as dry as expected. Finish is long and puckering with some oaky dryness, medium bodied with medium plus carbonation. Very nice but I think I liked the Gueuze better. Perhaps this would dry out if I let it sit for a while.
