3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Golden orange with small white head. Aroma of stone fruit. Light body with strong tartness upfront with very little of a malt backbone and nice carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dorée assez foncée, plutôt trouble, avec un nez en gomme balloune et une mousse en couronne à la surface. La bouche est comme prévue assez acidulée et en même temps fruitée (pêches, mangues, citron) mais curieusement dans les deux cas elle manque un peu de punch. Une gueuze classique, mais un peu bonbon ; la levure gomme balloune et les arômes trop tranquilles la classent un brin en dessous de la moyenne, sans toutefois la couler, car elle est redoutablement savoureuse.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-yellow body with a small white head. Nose is wood, cider-ish yeast tones, citric peel, straw and hints of basement funk and white pepper. Taste is peppery earthy basement funk tones, citric peel, hay, straw, brie crust and hints of red berries and dusty herbs. Light to medium body, dry finish, high carbonation. Pretty easy-going geuze with a definite personality going for it. Quite nice, despite the lack of sourness which would have picked it up a notch in my book.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375mL bottle from LCBO) Pours orange with a smallish head of active white bubbles and lingering rim without lace. Aroma has lemon, light wet hay, cheese notes, and a light orange sweetness too, to go with a bit of sourness. Wood pretty restrained. Palate has lemon juice, seems a bit lactic, slight barnyard, there’s some tart fruit and lemon zest in the middle, bit of sweet grain at the finish and a tart, slightly puckering sort of sourness throughout. Not bracingly sour though. Lightly earthy, smoky wood and Brett type character. Dry aftertaste. Light-moderate mouthfeel, bright but restrained carb, drinks well. Not as bracingly sour as I expected, moderate sweetness, some complexity to the characters even if the flavours seem a touch muted. Quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange pour, small white head. Funky aroma, light wet hay, some citrus and subtle horse blanket. Mouth feel is quite nice, carb is perfect. The finish is slightly sweey, with some lemon zest notes, with a very tart, funky finish. Quite a bit more sourness than i expected. My expectations were quite low for this beer, but its much better than expected. Not as tart and sour as the big lamic houses, but this still quite good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL bottle. Pours pale amber and lightly hazed. A white cap of head leaves no lacing. Lemony juiciness, floral hop tones, grainy malt, a touch of wheat berry, barnyard funk and earth. Mild oakiness. Dry on dry, with a moderate sourness. A hint of brett smokiness that approaches bitter. Moderately bodied and highly carbonated. A simple lambic; enjoyable nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very active orangey colour, no head nor lace. Nose is rather sour, a touch of grain. Tastes quite sour, I don’t know how to word it any other way. Really tasty, but quite acidic. Make sure you’ve got you heartburn treatment on standby.
