COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Een brouwerij zou geen brouwerij zijn, mochten ze ter ere van dit feestelijke moment geen passende millésime introduceren. De Cuvée René Special Blend 2010 is een exclusieve assemblage waarbij 10.000 liter oude lambiek, 5 jaar gerijpt in eiken foeders wordt versneden met een kleine hoeveelheid jonge lambiek. Vervolgens ondergaat dit unieke bier voor enkele maanden een natuurlijke hergisting in de fles. Deze Limited Edition is beperkt beschikbaar (wereldwijd slechts 15.000 flessen).

Shark_Pants (714) - AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2017
750ml bottle BB 2024. Nice clear amber with big fizzy white head and streams of bubbles. Classic gueuze aromas - woody, tart apple, horse blanket. The taste, as expected, is bracingly sour, with the same flavours suggested by the aroma. Champagne-like mouthfeel, very crisp and dry finish. Excellent.

anstei (1916) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is funky, but in a rather flowery way. Not an elderflower gueuze, but it sort of of feels that way. Body is light, lightly sour, quite funky, a bit tart, but generally soft and pleasant. Palate continues like that. A rather simple gueuze, but very smooth and easy to drink. Good stuff.

erickok (5802) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2017
Golden, shiny. Sour but distinctively malty. Apple cider and umami. Nice and rich, personally prefer a touch more body, but as a geuze it’s great. (75cl bottle shared with Benoit)

imperial_suchy (168) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Piwo pomarańczowe, idealnie klarowne z białą, syczącą i szybko redukującą się pianą. W aromacie intensywna stajnia, cytrusy, lekki ocet, winogrona. Jest mocno nagazowane. Po pierwszym łyku kubki smakowe zostały zbombardowane mega kwaśnością. Potem wchodzi smak stajni, cytrusy, winogrona. Na finiszu jest cierpkie i ma taki dziwny posmak kojarzący mi się z bandażami. Do tej pory nie wypiłem wielu lambików, ale jak narazie ten był zdecydowanie najlepszy.

bursprak (2843) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle @ home, split two ways. Fairly clear dark golden pour with a frothy pale head. Notes of freshly squeezed citrus, some light musty oak, funk, lemon zest, sweet appels and a lingering tartness. Smooth and good!

sjohnny (604) - - MAR 11, 2017
Fruit and funk. Yeast. Portapotty. Pours cloudy effervescent light gold. Fizzy bright white head that sticks around for a time. Leaves a thin film on the glass. Lots funk. Dry. Fruity. Sour finish. Really refreshing. I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Peach, loads of it. Sourness is a bit subdued, bit of sourness and dust on The aroma. Taste is good, peach again, so much somehow. Sourness is subtle but there. Good stuff

czlowiekmotyka (178) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Very classic Lambic, nothing "special". It is a more sophisticated version of Cuvee Rene Grand Cru. Not bad but I was expecting more. Some sourness and bitterness.
