2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light golden yellow with a light tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is apple juice, mild tartness. Taste is apple juice, some must, lemon bitterness, malt sweetness with a little dry wood on the finish. Body is light and the carbonation is active and slightly coarse. Too sweet for my liking...there are some nice flavors hiding is there but the sweetness with a saccharin feel to it heavily masks it.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.375l corked bottle @ Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelsburg. This is a clear champagne soda-colored beer with a small quickly islandy and sidesticking off-white head. I was expecting (and hoping for) a tart acidic and sour aroma, but that’s not what I get at all. It’s almost a bit sweet with sugar syrup, fruits and some sulfur-thingy going on as well. Not horrible, but definitely not what I was expecting. The flavors: oh yeah, that’s more like it! Not to sour in any way(I was also here hoping for more), it’s more subtle with good sour tones. Lots of acidic lemons, zest, hay, sour yogurt and malts. It’s average to soft carbonated and it has a really mild and kind oily texture in the mouth. Long mild dry lemony aftertaste. This was actually really tasty and almost just what I wanted right about now. 30.05.2012

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at De Cam Volkscafe. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma is very sweet with candy sugar, musty yeast, caramel, alcohol and Weetabix malt. Similar flavours, quite sweet and musty again, with pickled onions to finish. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. A little dry with a foamy mouth-feel. Not my favourite.

la nota fruttata la rende troppo dolce. speravo di trovare nella tradizione di timmermans molto di meglio.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Medium orange body. Crystal clear. Large fluffy white head.
S: Lemon, apple juice, and traces of oak and must.
T: Lemon gets replaced by cheap apple juice and a bit of vinegar. Artificial sweetness in the finish detracts from the few things this beer does decently.
M: Light bodied, thin, appropriately carbonated, sweetness starts to become cloying.
O: Not altogether bad. That said, there is no reason to try this other than to help provide a spectrum to appreciate the gueuzes of the world that actually taste great.

I know this is a classic, but it doesn't do it to me. Just a flat beer, not much after taste. Some peach color. no foam
