From 10/10 notes. Bottle from July 2012, little over a year on it. Pours hazy orange with 1 finger head. Nose is tart funk, apple, barnyard, citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp, sharp, carbonated. Taste is tart apple, oak, funk, hay, wood. Finish is medium sourness, pineapple, woody. Really nice gueuze, year in the bottle helped.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 bottle tasted October 2013.
Pours into a tulip glass a hazy amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Strong lactic/sour nose with hints of barnyard but nothing too complicated happening in the aroma. Rather sweet (or sweet-tart) flavors, lemon juice with sugar added dripped over corkboard. Green apricot. Some burn in the back of the throat, presumably from the acidity rather than the alcohol. Entirely drinkable, just not particularly special in any way.

One of thee sourest beers I’ve ever had, but it was something that could definitely be enjoyed in small doses. I’m slowly coming around to the style.

Pours a slightly unclear golden beer with a good white head. Smells sour, bit glue. Medium sour taste with a sweet finish. Bit champagne like. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy copper color with a fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma of citrus, fruit, earthy with a tart backbone. Taste is quite tart with fruit, bit of citrus and a bit of spice. Quite bitter with an unexpected clean finish. Moderate body, clean and smooth with plenty of tart. Nice beer for the style, but am not really keen on Lambic.

Piwo dla sadomasochistów kwasowości. Albo mój egzemplarz był już mocno zleżały... Jednym słowem kwas trudny do ułożenia w ustach, ale jak już się przyzwyczaiłem to... nawet posmakowało! Pełne paradoksów piwo zasługujące na drugą szansę

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy, light orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is barnyard, lemon juice, cheese, wood, and must. The flavor is sour with a very slight candy sweetness, mild funk. Very tasty. Light to medium-bodied and dry. Sticky finish on the lips and tongue. I enjoyed this enough that I would buy it again. A big bonus is for as good as it is it’s not too expensive.
