3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Väldigt specilell. Den första Gueze Lambic jag prövar. Fantastik gyllene färg med enor mskumkrona. Luktar jäst och är väldigt syrlig med massa kolsyra.
Det är nog så här en Gueze skall vara?

Veramente buonissima, migliore della versione draft, più sostanziosa e rotonda, più lunga e intensa. Non ai livelli di altre però

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orangey golden with a small white head. Aromas of underripe berries, citrus, herbs and barnyard. All kinds of citrus in the mouth, an explosion of fruity sourness, lemon, orange peel, more barnyard. Wonderful Champagne like bubbles, and acidity that just begs you to take another sip. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, shared with Dave. Hazy medium orange colour with a lasting finely bubble sticky white head. Aroma is sour and funky. Flavours of sour fruits (unripened apricot stands out), natural yoghurt, leather, and horseblanket. Some light vinegar too. Flavours all converge around a pleasant sourness that ends dry, with lower acidity than the 3 Fontein we had next.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (75cl) @ Villaggio Della Birra, Bibbiano. Hazy light orange with good, quite rapidly collapsing head, aroma is fruity and freshly sour: brett, wood, citrus, grapefruit and a little barnyard, taste is very balanced and smoothly acidic with vey good persistence in the whole mouth and a tempting dry finish. A monster of an Oude Gueuze, i’ve been drinking liters of this one and fall in love again every time.
Bottle (37.5cl) @ Fermento beer shop, Roma Via Tigré very similar to the 75cl bottle, but with clearer appearence (strange for an oude gueuze) and with less pronounced yeast and brett notes, the yeast deposit was really smaller than the bigger bottle and the overall balance was less pleasurable but still a very good beer. Anyway i would prefer going through .75 Liters bottles, if possible, in the future.

Sample at a tasting. Strong sour smell, fruity with citrus, grapefruit and vanilla. Not a violently sour taste but enough to make it interesting. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Golden with white ring of head. Aroma of lemon sherbet and barnyard funk. Similar taste, sharp lemon sherbet, lots going on but flavours that are impossible to describe. Long moderately tart finish. This really is an exceptional geuze.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from SB (375ml). Pours a hazy medium yellow to golden, with a large white head that drops quickly. Aroma of spices, dough, champagne, a hint of banana, some tropical fruit and yeast. Taste starts off a bit mellow with a light, fresh sourness before a full head on explosion on the senses. It’s incredibly rich with a powerful yet balanced sourness that manages to never become too much. Finish is abrupt and leaves off with a slight fruity sweetness. Body is medium, a touch oily almost, with balanced, medium carbonation.
