Clear, well-carbonated, bronze-golden with strong copper tints and a white head atop that fades slowly to a ring.
I’d be curious to know what the proportions of each blendery’s lambic are used in this. From the nose I get a LOT of leather, cider, light green apple, sweat, mineral and hay-like grains. These things I associate most strongly with Boon, Oud Beersel and to some extent, Lindemans). It doesn’t have the vivacious, bright Brett character of 3F, though of course, there is certainly light Brett in the nose. And nor does it have the stronger lactic acidity I associate with De Cam, Timmermans and Hanssens. Whatever the case, it’s very approachable with a surprisingly large amount of malt character (rich honey, hay, wheat-like cereal) to easily balance the tart, lemony Brett and light lactic sourness. A bit of farm-y character, though it’s more cider and mineral-dominated. No alcohol or flaw.
Bright and lemony with light cider on the edges and a good lactic sourness that fails to completely pucker the mouth or strip the enamel. It’s well-balanced showing the aforementioned honey-like malt with even a touch of biscuity wheat. Lots of musty, cellar quality as it warms and breathes. Doesn’t display the sheer force of intense lambic flavor that 3F and Cantillon do, for me, as there’s a lot of, while pleasant, extraneous flavors at work. Slightly bigger body than I’d like, could use just a bit more dryness. Otherwise, very lovely and I’m sure much more approachable than most lambics.
750ml bottle 2017, thanks Tanno. Pours almost clear golden, small white head. Vinegar, green apple, white wine in aroma. Taste is tart, raw gooseberry, mild barrel, green apple and vegetables... Medium bodied, below average carbo. Wateriness in aftertaste, some vinegar. Meh, expected more, but still enjoyable. phfyysik (1485) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2017

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2017 A hint of yeasty funk on the nose, beautiful dark orange with a good bit of head for the style, white wine coloring over the gueuze flavorings, not overwhelmingly sour, perfect carbo for refreshment

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2017 Rich orange colour with lots of quick-fading head. Pleasant carbonation throughout the sip. Sour citrus aroma matches it’s tart taste with a lasting finish. A great geuze no doubt, but probably reaching a plateau of how good a geuze can even get. llkc (2830) - århus, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2017

750 ml bottle shared by johnnnniee. Mild notes of barnyard, dried hey, yeasty funk. Taste is mild Brett notes, stable funk, mild lactic acid, but subtle. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Pretty nice, I get that it is a massive blend but it is complex and wicked funky. Thanks John. Chalumeaux (1848) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2017
