3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly hazy pale yellow pour with a medium-sized head that settles kind of quickly and leaves no lacings.
The smell is rather pleasant yet fairly simple. Here’s mostly aromas of green apples, lemon and vinegar with hints of grapes, hay-like funkiness, earth and minerals. Quite acidic.
The flavor is rather sour with notes of grapes lime and most importantly green apples. Some sweet fruity notes as well. Complementary notes of grass and earth, and some funky notes of mud and hay. The finish is very mildly bitter with notes of minerals apples and lemon. The taste develops to the worse in the glass, especially the finish which actually gets quite bad after a while.
Moderate body, quite a lot of carbonation. Very effervescent.
Considering the fact that I generally think this brewery makes poor excuses of lambics, this one is actually quite impressive and I actually enjoyed it. I didn’t Timmermans could make lambics with an authentic and rustic character. But despite the praise, it’s definitely still not a top quality gueuze.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours light hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is of barnyard/horse blanket, light cheese, citrus/lemon juice, tart green apples, unripe rhubarbs and wheat alongside pear and pineapple esters. Good balance between lacto and brett. The nose is well balanced and complex but not 3F/Cantillon complex. The flavour is medium dry and near heavily acidic. Very lemony/sour citric and that’s it. Light undertones of barnyard, toast and wheat. The mouthfeel is light watery and light empty with a lively carbonation. The finish is dust dry with citrus lingering. Light bodied. A simple flavour profile overshadows a near fantastic aroma.
