3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Corked and caged green glass 37.5cl bottle pours deep gold with off white head. The aroma offers up modest sweetness moving into sweet fruity tartness and a thin layer of mustiness. The taste is similar with sweetness, fruity tart sweetness and then moving into Smarties sweet/tart candy notes. The more I drink the more I’m not getting this one. It lacks depth and interest and oddness I enjoy with some examples of this style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle in the Begijnhof. Lemony nose, light grass/dust, some caramel, sugar. Orange amber color, clear, with lace and light but persistent bubbles. Sweet and tangy, lemon, some light lambic funk and leather but not much, a bit lactic. Certainly not all that serious, but pretty tasty and quite drinkable. Good lemon flavors.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus, apple, quite sweet, some caramel. Sweet flavour, apple juice, light sour touch. Light citrus in the finish, lots of sweet apple juice.
Apple juice is listed as an ingredient also in this beer, same as in the Tradition Gueuze, but here it seems to work out somewhat, and I’m far less offended by it in a beer that is already supposed to be sweetened.
