3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
A so-called ’luierik’, basically a failed geuze, that is to say: a blend of lambics which has not refermented as intended and has therefore not fully evolved to a real geuze (other examples are 3 Fonteinen Doesjel and Cantillon Loerik). Has a creamy, off-white, stable head and misty orange blonde colour. Complex aroma, young lambic, lemon juice, wheat, sweat, sherry, wet hay, horseblanket, lots of estery fruitiness. Equally estery taste, complex, tart, with the expected low carbonation (and not the champenoise fizz of a fully evolved geuze), woody, funky and complex dry sour finish. Very drinkable and more or less the same in taste as their actual geuze.

Somewhat opaque orange with small fluffy white foam head. Aroma is sour, so is taste. These gueuze’s are nice ones you get used to them. (Brussels 201405)

On tap, 25cL. @Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. A clear orange beer with brown hues. Large white head. Some big bubbles on the foam. Medium persistence. Aroma of smoke, vinegar. Heavy sour, light bitter, very light sweet note. Light body, watery texture. Soft carbonation. Lasting sour finish. Not so dry than gueuze’s Tilquin. Difference can also be explained by the fact that the temperature was a bit higher, I think. Overall, a nice blend Lambic. Recommended. I drank this one with a vegetarian quiche !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Hazy orange shade with a short ring of bubbles. Citrussy leading into apple fruitiness. Cheesiness just breaking through. Not the most sour but ending is bone dry. Compares well to their regular gueuze. Tasty stuff.
