37.5 cl bottle at Domus. Slightly hazy golden color, small white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus, grape, apple. Flavor begins malty and progresses to sourdough bread, champagne, apples, grapefruit, lemon. Nice complexity, good body. A winner. jfb (6665) - GERMANY - FEB 10, 2010
(bottle) pours a clear golden-amber colour with a quickly dissipating frothy white head. aroma of citrus fruits and funk, some mild cheese and a light touch of roses. flavour is more of the same, quite mild, with some light notes of leather and pepper. medium body with very lively carbonation and a sour bready finish.

Pours with a pale haziness and a tall bleached head lacing the glass like lager. Beautiful fresh puckering aroma of lemon curd, Granny Smiths, beeswax, dusty old hops, a very faint dab of of cellar and horseblanket. Puckering, lemony and sharp without the harshness of acidity that pushes some lambic based beers into heartburn territory.Tingling, effervescent even, the spritz totally suited to the freshness and slightly dank green apple acidity on show. Equal parts bretty real cider and champagne, without the burn. Keeps a thin collar of froth all the way to the bottom of the glass. No hint of the akcohol content discernible. This is in Drie Fonteinen territory for me, and one of the best oude gueuzes I’ve had to date: puckering and authentic, but not to the point of gastric distress. Top stuff. gyllenbock (9878) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2009
Amber color with a large, white fluffy foam.
The aroma was tart with green apples. The flavor was mildly sour with fruity elements. Aftertaste was short but the beer was refreshing and definitely drinkable. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009

Jan, 2008 Served room temperature on the yeast at Mort Subite in Brussels. Soft and woody - the sourness is mellow rather than sharp. There’s hints of straw and cobwebbs and a dry citric fruit almost like grapefruit. Very welcoming and refreshing - it washed down the herb omelette beautifully.

Many thanks to fonefan for this trade bottle. Hazy dark gold with faint white head. A sour aroma, laden with apple aroma and a disappointingly faint hint of barnyard. Similar body with an easy finish. marcus (10682) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle from Alvinne. This cloudy yellow lambic poured with a massive white head and a strong sour barnyard aroma. Very nice taste as in traditional gueuze. Moderately sour and very fruity flavor. bhensonb (15761) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
