3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Lightly hazed light orange with a lasting frothy head. The aroma is mellow on the funk, with some wood, lemon zest, and some lemon cake frosting. Dry and tart, with a light malt body and cereals in the finish. Light bodied and spritzy. Simple and to the point, but quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to andrew. Pours a clear orange with a yellow white head. Sugary earthy funky dirty aroma that’s odd and not too enticing. Citrus dirty earthy flavors with citrus rinds. Bitter dirty finish ... kind of a mess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color with a dissipating, somewhat fizzy, big bubbles, off- white head. Aromas of pale malt, petunia blossoms, candi and apple peel, with hints of hop sack aromas. Nice feel with a little prickle. Light oak and grape peel flavors. Not much complexity in the flavors. Lightly citric in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red tinted orange pour with a fluffy white head. Surprisingly weak aroma. Some woody and sour citrus notes. Very sour funky flavor. Woody and earthy notes with citrusy lemon. Very pungent vinegar aftertaste. I found that aftertaste a bit unpleasant and for me it ruined what would otherwise have been an excellent gueuze.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This one is a little sour, with good tartnetss. Beautiful haze orange/honey color bright, unfiltered so it does throw some sediment/yeasty goodness.a lovely bright tart nose.
This is certainly a nice treat on a hot summer day. Grab a hunk of fatty soft ripened cheese and go at it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is some sour fruit with a bit of vinegar. Flavor is way sour and almost too vinegar like. Finish is super dry and sour. Lots of acid in this one. Sour’s are not my thing and this only confirms that fact.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap on 7/9/09 at Toronado, SD. First of all, it was a treat to have on tap. Pours cloudy gold, with great frothy head. Nice sour orange citrus aroma, with hints of peach and berry. Very sour up front that hits hard, then mellows out. Incredibly smooth gueuze that I’d like to try again.
