3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber pour with a thin creamy white head. Funky and tart aroma, green wood, fallen leaves, a touch of tart stone fruit and band aid. Flavor is Big on tart stone fruit and tart apples up front, a little smokiness, salty grain, cereal, a little band aid, lots of tart and funky notes. Light body, moderate strength, blanketing and sharp carbonation. Good stuff, has a nice malt depth for a Gueuze.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy light orange color with decent white head. Big funky sour aroma, citrusy - grapefruit, lemon. Mellow sour flavor, barnyardy brett character, tartness, citrusy notes on the flavor as well. Not overwhelming but very refreshing and drinkable gueuze.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured an amber-caramel color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart citric acid, apple and vinegar. The flavor was very tart and sour with undertones of bread, must and sweettart candies. Long tart, sour, musty sweettart candy finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours , copper clear with sediment, with weak head. Aroma is sour apple cider, champagne. Palate is medium thin, fizzy. Taste is sour, tart and crispy. There are flavours of wheat and lemon sourness. Finish is Refreshing and little dry and and bitter. Since I enjoy the style this is decent lambic. Not the most complex, but very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours cloudy amber with brown highlights; the head is bone-coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: lemon-juice, fermenting hay, and citrus marmalade. The taste is heavy sour/tart that finishes with a light bitterness; there are notes of: lemon, barnyard funks, and finishes with: mineral-notes, and cereal grain (namely wheat). The palate is medium-full bodied, has medium carbonation, and has a medium finish. Overall, this beer makes a drastic 180 halfway through, finishing like a pilsner - odd, but interesting.

A lot of bubblegum flavors in this one. Lemon acidity. Not the best for the style.

This one was just OK. A bit of a let down, but still better than a lot of beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little disappointed here. Smell was sharp and sour and appeared to be in line with the style. The color was a golden with a little amber thrown in and a white head. The palate was light with a good amount of carbonation and a sour finish. The flavor was funky and not in a Brett kind of way. It was sour and grainy. The finish reminded me of wasabi,which didn’t work. It had promise but kind of failed on the end.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
