Gurd had this one down - sherbert and pear drops. Not the best gueueueuueueueeze I’ve had, too sweet for me, but agree with Dom that 27/11 is just weird.

Keg at BBB. 27/11? Really? Ok, it didn’t compare with others of the same style but come on. Pleasantly suppable.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
375mL bottle, pours a hazy murky orange with a small white head. Nose is quite repulsive, with plastic, cardboard, apple juice and artificial sugars. Flavour is quite bad too, with lots of sweetness -- what the fuck is this doing in a supposed gueuze? -- along with notes of plastic, moderate funk, and apple juice. Very low complexity and way too sweet for the style. What a shame that these pseudo-lambics are out polluting the market, and potentially misleading dumbass consumers about what this is. Yeah, I know I bought it -- I was curious. Very bad. Don’t bother unless you’re curious or offered a free bottle.
