750 ml bottle shared. Mostly clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of pungent funk, oaky notes. Tastes of funk, oak, stone fruit. Light body with a dry finish. Okay. JorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2017
No head; ochre-orange, clear beer. Lambic-like nose, with horseblanket, sour grapes, lemonpeel and toilet soap. Horseblanket, sweet woodruff, garden herbs, turmeric; spicy, yet sweet. Lipstick in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, quite slick, and apparently a bit of oxydation. Not half bad. But whatever American raters may think of it, this ainít a gueuze, sorry. ctipping (1948) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2017
750 mL bottle. Batch 1, originally reviewed 11/3/2014. Hazy deep orange body. Big white head and great retention. Smells fantastic. Herbal. Very oaky. Light lemon citrusy acidity. Smells kinda like Mamouche. Has that peppery characteristic.
Tastes of orange and lemon. Lightly tart up front. Has that peppery flavor again. Accentuates the orange. Pale malt. Dry grass. Woody in the back end. Fantastic.
Medium carbonation. Moderate sourness.
Well damn this is good. Truly impressive. Challenging the standards of great lambics in complexity.

750ml corked and caged -> tulip. Slightly hazy lite copper with small frothy offwhite head. A: tart and funky with grape must, hay, barnyard, citrus. T: tart citrus, less funk but still present, with more hay than barnyard. Good, but bit too acidic.

Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing well filtered honey with no head.
The nose shows very strong and horse blanket with an old oak barrel.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Lightly tart with a moderately strong oak forwardness and a white wine bitterness on the finish. Lacks enough tartness to really elevate it to a proper gueuze. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 22, 2016
750ml bottle pours a dark orange with a ring of white head. Nose is big with acetic acid, grapefruit rind, heavy sour orange, fermenting grapes, candlewax. Flavor is heavy with acetic acid and vitamin C tablets, heavy grapefruit, sour wood, grass, a touch of ammonia. Full, tart finish. koleminer20 (3493) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Corbetís house during a tasting on October 17. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes. There is a light funk here, and some light citrus and apple skins, but itís funky and sweet. Itís similar to Cantillon, just sweeter. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light citrus, maybe some stone fruits, but itís just funky and sweet. There is a barnyard tendency on the back end. The mouth feel is thinner and decently carbonated with a lingeringly funky and dusty finish. Itís interesting, but not incredible.
