3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 375 ml bottle.
Aroma is moderately funky with some nice earthy barnyard funk. Medium light oak notes with some tropical fruit. Medium acidity with some citrus.
Pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow gold with a fairly large, rocky, thin, white head that quickly recedes and disappears. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic and somewhat sharp with some citrus but also acetic. Interesting fruit character with some apricots and nectarines as well as lighter tropical fruit. Funk is fairly light, but a bit earthy. Light oak notes. Some nice mineral notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright geuze but the acidity is too sharp for me. It’s amazing how much stone fruit character the beer has. Good mineral notes as well.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
D’énormes particules en suspension flottent dans une bière dorée et voilée ne moussant que très peu. Le bouquet est majoritairement poussiéreux et citronné, avec quelques arômes de gazon fraîchement coupé. L’acidité est saisissante en bouche, mais on s’habitue rapidement, même si j’avais l’impression de croquer dans des citrons à pleines dents à chaque gorgée. Franche, désaltérante ... un classique!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375 l bottle @ One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Golden colour, head dies quicly, some UFOs at bottom. Well, this is different than the brewery’s more commercial sweet lambic beers. Very dry, yes champagne is never this dry. It burns your throat. OK, not as dry as Cantillon’s products but still very "oude". This is not for everyone.
