Pours a lighter transparent yellow with virtually no head. The nose has a lighter musk and cheesy funk. I bit of sourness up front, apricots are rather strong, notes of citrus. The taste has sweetness up front, peach and green apple, a light rindy funk and maybe a touch of musk. More apricot floavors and a light sourness in the fnish. The body is light, the feel is creamy, low carb and lightly dry. Hans_Pieter (2) - BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2012 does not count
This is the perfect beer to enjoy after visiting Brussels; go to A La Mort Subite, ask for waiter Bart to open a 75cl bottle at your table - unforgettable tquest (94) - BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2011
From draft at DHVL together with Cantillon Lambic and De Troch.
Pours yellow golden with no head nor carbonation.
The nose is citrus/lemon, wood, cellar.
The taste is actually the best of all 3 lambics, most complex compared to the other ones.
It’s again citrus, very nice sour finish which the other 2 don’t have. Sour, dry, balanced, complex.
It doesn’t need that much more to be a nice geuze.
