4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(older 09/2014 rating, 33cl bottle at The Capital Leuven) Nice amber-yellow pour. Nose of lactically lifted fruit esters, an alleviation copied with success in taste and mouthfeel: beneath is the benchmark orchard fruits and fraught pale grains of a BE tripel, interwoven and on top are the gorgeous wild citric and lactic sours providing mild wheaty contours. Tastes very much like a fresh "cut" of both base beers, instead of an organic new beer, but that is what makes it so drinkable. Curious to know what will happen with the purchased 75cl bottle..

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Precioso color dorado con espuma blanca que se disipa rápido. El aroma es ácido aunque moderado, domina totalmente la levadura salvaje. En el sabor hay más equilibrio, ácida al principio, asidrada, manzana verde, también tiene un ligero dulce cálido y un toque especiado, con un final un poco agrio. Una mezcla interesante en la que domina la parte lambic.

Bottle. Murky apple juice. Aroma: sour, cheese, apple cider, nettle, marjoram. Taste: cactus sourness, apple cider followed by a light yeasty triple flavor. Cheese in the aftertaste, hint of exotic fruits. Sourness wins in subsequent sips.

Backlog rating. 33cl bottle shared at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. Very nice funkiness, basement and citrus notes, interwined with Belgian yeast that further dries out the palate. Very nice blend of styles and an enjoyable brew overall

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
25.4 oz. bottle, labeled “08/06/16,” which I interpret as a best by date indicating that it was bottled on June 8, 2014. The label was on a nice, solid, artificial cork. Pours a hazy deep gold with a large amount of thick, cream-colored to off-white head. Moderate effervescence. Tart, honeyed, mineral, yeasty aroma. Scents of green apples and honey. Very good smell. Dry, tart, honeyed, mineral flavor. Tastes a bit like a tarter version of an old-fashioned honey candy. Lemon juice and lemon peel elements. Perhaps a bit sour and a touch funky but mostly tart. Bitter, almost umami finish. Light to moderately dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Aqueous in the palate. Surprisingly light for a 7% ABV beer. Starts quite strong, especially in terms of aroma. Ends somewhat disappointingly and boringly. Not as flavorful as it should be. Still, I enjoy it, and it’s quite drinkable for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Older bottle(15/05/15), Deep golden color with a off-white head and an orange glance.nose: Malts, grain, unfresh, all in the back with a good try some apples. not appealing nose. Taste: Grain, very malty with a sour yeasty underground. Fruity, apples bitter sour finish. Long lasting. Very smooth , almost a creamy touch, bit still a sparkling touch. For sure not the common brew, but had expected more. Somehow feels the aging has done bad to it. From the freshness of the geuze is hardly any legt, well the vicaris has been lost in translation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Pours mostly clear and deeply golden with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma furnishes stone fruits and a mild note of very funky cheese. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Tastes a lot like a tripel blended with a lambic - lightly sweet, tart, mildly bitter, fruity and bold. Finishes tangy and lightly bitter with minerals.
