3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle for $3 from Total Wine.
Pours a hazy straw yellow to orange with a nice white head. Aroma is straw, grass, funk, acidic sourness, lemon zest, vinegar, grapes, and mold. Flavor is earthy, lemony tartness, dirt, muddy water, old socks, leather, wood, asprin. Very dry and not as sour as some of the other similar gueuze i’ve had. Decent Gueuze at a decent price.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks ok... wow aroma is just awful. I cant quite put my finger on it, but its like salty, sweet, smoky. Harsh acidic mixed with residual sweetness... yuk. The body might be ok though/

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Village Beer Merchant. Pours a dull, hazy orange/brown body with a fizzy white head into a tumbler. Aroma is very yeasty, vinegar with some light citrus notes. Flavor is immediately sour grapes, then mellows out somewhat the uncover some fruity tartness. Medium bubbly MF. Musty earthy finish. This is my first experience with this style and yea i know "don’t rate to style"... whatever. Suprisingly drinkable once you get past the sourness. I’m excited to enter the world of gueze, which many others seem to love some much. Hopefully it grows on me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 375ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy orange color with a fair size white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is sour with horseblanket and old socks. The flavor is overtly sour with sour grapes, sour oak and sour hay. The palate is malty with an acidic quality, and the carbonation is soft. The finish is long and sour. Overall: A very tasty lambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. A rich, tangy peach, nectarine
and plum citric acid blasts forth from the nose, deepening into
lactic and aged funk. Bright and acidic. Pours a brilliant beer
gold, with a sharp peach glint of light and some opalescence.
Flavor is just as rewarding as the aroma. Strong curt acidity
pairs with chewy breadiness in the malt character. A prickly,
fresh bubbling carbonation carried the strong pale fruits
forward. A wonderful sipper. Delightful.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle served at Ginger Man in NYC. The beer pours a beautifully hazy salty grey/orange body with bubbly white champagne like head. Aroma is light and tart. The taste is sour and tart, yeast, some funk, a a bit of aged lemon peel... overall very compliant. Very bubbly carbonation really help this beer out. Fun to drink, very bright. As a whole this beer is well balanced and a fine example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Bottle served at Ginger Man in NYC. The beer pours a beautifully hazy orange body with a decent white head. Aroma is light tart. The taste is sour and tart, but after sampling the Ommegang Rouge my palate has been slightly dulled. However, this lambic tastes extremely well balanced, with a great mouth feel and a tart flavor that doesnt go over the top. RERATE: Sampled at RnH with Streets. The sour and tart notes are much more restricted after having other gueuzes to compare to. The mouthfeel is balanced, but not spectacular.
