33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kulminator: A: clear golden with a white head S: apples, slightly floral & sweet, slightly tart lemons T: taste follows suit, apple juice mixed with sweet slightly tart lemons, touch floral with a gueuze buried underneath, touch artificial sweetener, slightly sweet barnyard & yeast – it is not exactly sweet but it isn’t sour either really, it is basically a bit like a middling gauze mixed with sweet slightly tart lemons & a splash of apple juice – a pointless compromises really which shuts out most groups which might have been interested – still too sweat four a sourhead – B: medium

Una lambic dal forte sapore di limone? Acida quanto basta, ti ripulisce bene il palato!

A lambic for starters. It has some sourness and tardiness, but not nearly as much as a real lambic beer. This is boring and watery, especially if you like the real thing.

A clear yellow / orange beer with a small white head. First thing I notice is there’s no "plop" when removing the cork, the beer is low on carbonation. Taste is at first quite sweet, too sweet for this type of beer. Luckily it finishes more sour and dry.

Bottled in 2012. Chyba jedno ze slabszych guze jakie degustowalem. Niby tradycyjne, korkowane, a etykieta nawiazuje do tradycji. Piwo jest slabe lekkie za malo kwaskowate i za malo tresciwe. Wysycenie srednie, mizerna piana, metnosci brak. Piwo w sam raz dla poczatkujacych i poznajacych ten gatunek, ale nie dla tych co poznali juz np. Gueuze z Cantillon.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Im Geruch säuerlich-süßlich, die Farbe ist tiefgolden. Der weiße, feinporige Schaum ist relativ stabil. Der Antrunk ist säuerlich, schlagt aber sofort nach den ersten paar Sekunden ins komisch-süßliche um – merkwürdig. Ich schaue auf die Flasche und kann es kaum glauben – da ist neben Zucker auch noch 5,3% Apfelsaft drin! Ach Du Schreck! Und die schöne Farbe kommt Durch das tolle chemische E150… Ohne die Zutatenliste gesehen zu haben dachte ich schon, dass das ein komisches Bier ist – aber jetzt weiß ich, wieso es so eigenartig schmeckt!
--> Wer Gueuze mit leicht süßlichem Apfelgeschmack und sehr moderater Säure mag, dem sei dieses Bier empfohlen! Wer eine vernünftige, „reine“ Gueuze sucht --> Finger weg. Mein Fall ists jedenfalls nicht!
Test vom 29.7.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,5,10,5,12,6 - 7,20

Somewhat unclear orange amber appearance, with a bubbly white head. Gueuze with a lot of apple which is a lot sweeter than it is sour. It’s more like an apple cider. Thirsty quenching enough, but poor as a gueuze. Carbo is too low.

An impressive traditionally brewed Gueuze Lambic by, they say, the world’s oldest lambic brewery. Right balance of sourness, authentic taste - a very surprising product indeed; what a surprise!. spontaneous fermentation all right, the authentic way.
