4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2011 edition, bottle number 05292. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is barnyard, sour apricot, tangerine, orange, sour yoghurt and Savlon. The taste is pleasantly tart, lemon, white grape skin, green apple, sour apricot, lightly acidic, hay, floral aspect, touch of bitterness, wood, barnyard and a hint of underlying sweetness holds it all together. Long, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not the sourest of geuzes, but for me the balance is perfect. Complex, yet highly drinkable. Bravo HORAL!
Sample from bottle at The Local Pub, Athens. (A group of people had a private tasting with beers they had brought themselves. The bartender made it known to the group that I was interested in beer and they gave me a sample. So a big thanks to MikeBibere, AntonFred(?) and all the others! Cheers!) Orange color, small white head. Slight tart aromas of gooseberries, cherries, dough and slight citrus. Slight tart taste with citrus, earth and gooseberries. I like it, and I usually don't enjoy Gueuze all that much. DavyK (195) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 Bottle at Koelschip Yard. The movement through sweet, sour, fruit, tart is really impressive. Lovely texture on the palate too. crazy_cat_lady (705) - - OCT 15, 2017

Pours creamy orange, some white foam on top. Nice autumny nose, lightly acidic, fruity, hinting a perfectly balanced tart lambic. Nice fruity flavour, perfect balance of tartness, light and drinks well. Shrimp cocktail is actually a good pairing, cuts through mayonnaise and blends well with salad.

Bardzo owocowe, ciut kiszone, zaskakujaco pelne, wcale nie bardzo wytrawne, jest ciut slodyczy... ryli fajne piwko, zwlaszcza fajnie z serem rodenbachvintage (171) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2017
