Bottle. Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma is a little sweet, some tropical fruit and brett notes. Taste is fairly sweet, some soft fruit and subtle spice. Not great for the style, but still tasty.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Vermelha, límpida. Espuma rala de curta duração. Aroma de cerejas, adocicado e ácido. Sabor também adocicado e ácido, com notas de cereja, maçã e um pouco de limão. Retrogosto ácido com final doce. Parece mais uma fruit beer que uma gueuze.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap at Gent in Amsterdam - A lambic with sugar and stevia added? What on earth? Why? Especially the stevia... just... why? Okay, this beer is definitely sweet. There’s some funky tartness in there too. It’s medium bodied Despite being baffled by the stevia and the fact that the beer seems to be more of a faro than a gueuze, it still tastes pretty good. I think I’d have liked their fond tradition gueuze more though.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is flets en weinig inspirerend, heeft totaal niets van een goede geuze, lijkt nergens op, hooguit mislukte limonade. Smaak is in elk geval niet vies dus gewoon op gedronken. Mislukt product wat mij betreft.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a thin tan head. On the nose, tart apple, sour cherry, light citrus, and candy-like notes. Taste wise, lighter bodied with sour cherry, dry apple cider like notes, and a light musty note that leads into watery domestic malt, a light hit of "barnyard", a faint bit of cinnamon in the finish, more of the mildly tart apple cider notes and a big bready/yeasty note in the bitter finish. It’s not complex at all. It’s sort of like the Coors Light of lambics, which is a good thing, because sometimes you don’t want a bottle of puckering acid for yourself. It’s super refreshing, and there is enough going on to make it interesting. In the world of Gueuze, this isn’t great, but overall in the world of beer I would take this over a lot of other mediocre brews.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Koperkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: wat zweetvoetgeur (overjaarse hop). Smaak: medicinale siroop. Iets sprankelende koolzuurprikkel, weinig body. Afdronk: licht zurig. Dit geuze? Geef mij maar hun Fond tradition.
