4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-orange. A bit hazy. Very small head that quickly disappeared. Hardly any carbonation noticeable. Fruity aroma. A nice mild but very refreshing sourness with a lot of fruitiness.

3.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 2007-08-01. 5 years old, 37,5cl. Big chunks - very unattractive! Orange, unclear, almost no head. Aroma of vomit and rotten apples. Taste: WTF? Tastes very good! Lovely sourness, surprisingly round and drinkable. I’d say, that blind folded and with plugs up your nose, this is a very good beer after 5 years in the cellar!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
2003 12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Pours cloudy pale orange with quickly disappearing white head and some floaters. Faint aroma of orange, barnyard, and baseball glove. Tart flavor with some funk but not the clean, complex horseblanket of other gueuze. Medium body, with a surprising carbonation bite. Ok, but not great like the other gueuzes I’ve been drinking. Still, more drinkable than the completely flat 2004 3 Fonteneins I’ve unfortunately come across.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is quite strong sourish citrus. Flavor is sour, type representative, but not ordinary. This is the real stuff but have a lack of complexity. Quite nice anyway.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry and with that gueuze funk we love. Pours a hazy light yellow with a white short lasting head. Aroma is barn, wet blanket with an odd metallic overtone. The taste is acidic, and rather watery. I’m a fan of this style of beer, but was disappointed in this bottle. I have one more of the same vintage (use by date of 2013) and I’ll try it in a few years. Found at Knightly Sprits in Orlando, which has an outstanding selection of Gueuze, sour ales, and Belgians in general.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (BB 09/2015 = vintage 2005?)
Hazy orange yellow color, small white head. Typical sour, acidic fruity nose. Light carbonation. Odd metallic mouthfeel. Sour fruity flavor with notes of rubber bands, lemon, condensed milk and apricot. Acidic aftertaste. Strange off-flavors are lower points a lot, maybe need to resample sometime from other vintage.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 1999 - Straw golden clear body with a fast disappering white head; Very lemon acetic very simple but pleasant fresh nose; Only very little sharp carbonation in body, malolactic but quite 1-dimensional, quite soft texture; Simple sour finish with lots of barrel aromas. To old or never any good???

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on 07-2003. The beer pours to a golden straw colored body with a thin, rapidly dissipating white head. The aroma is funky sour fruits, leather, and yeasts with notes of funky barnyards (but not the shit filled kind). Very complex. The flavor is funky tart yeasty malt and leathery barns. Quite complex. The palate is ultra tart and medium bodied. I think this one’s a bit under-rated...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottled in july of 2003 thanks to blake
clear off golden to straw pour w/ a tall white head w/ thin lacing. smells a little like feat and leather at first followed by the very tart fruit aromas. Palate is well caoted nicely puckering. Very good flavor tart but not overpowering tons of citrus a light hint of leathers touch of bread. Delicious.
