3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a fluffy white head leaving a little lacing. Aroma is strawberry yogurt, white wine and vinegar. Taste is unbelievably sour to start but your palate adjusts after a few sips. Vinous and tart. Finish is lightly Brett with a lingering sweetness on the finish. Palate is medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Not too dry. Very happy with my first gueze experience.

Rating #4,100. From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting with ebone1988 and Gus on December 10. 375 mL bottle, 2016/2017 blend. The pour is a darker coppery orange color with a thick cap of off white head that falls down slowly with a couple spots of lace as it recedes to a thin ring. The aroma is nice. There is a great funkiness up front before it quickly turns to a tart sourness. It’s balanced and not biased in either direction. This is great. It’s got the funky classic that I like from Cantillon with the beautiful tart sourness from Drie Fonteinen. Light lemongrass and citrus tartness. The flavor matches. There is a light funkiness and a hint of barnyard that I do enjoy in the mix. The lemon and citrus come through nicely, and there is a hint of metallic on the finish. The mouth feel is clean and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly funky barnyard and a kiss of sourness on the finish. There is a bit of dry oak that adds in late. I like this one a bit. 8 4 7 4 15 Grumbo (4264) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle at the Wine-Boutique, Felixstowe. Pours hazy golden bronze with a small lasting white head. Aroma of sour fruit, salted caramel, yeast, mandarin, lemon and grapefruit. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, towards heavy tart sourness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Very good. EvanFriend (655) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Funky. Very funky. I get notes of wet hay and barnyard/horse blanket. This is a good thing. Reasonably tart as well. Dry. Good beer. moldovan9807 (516) - Oradea, ROMANIA - DEC 26, 2017

Flaska från SB. Vintage 2016/17. Guldfärgad, lätt disig med vitt skum. Riktigt fin, pigg och krispig i doften med toner av socker, gröna äpplen, päron, gröna druvor, halm, stall. Fin torr, stram kropp. Smak samma som doften. Ruskigt krispig med fin, ren syra. Oerhört fräsch och riktigt törstsläckare. Wow! Emelie (236) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2017

Funky aroma. Popcorn. Toast. Stald. Citrus.
Sur men også frisk på tungen. Halvflad, ikke som fx Cuveé René.
Tør afrunding med masser af citrus. ebone1988 (2233) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2017

Taste is perfectly blended, tart funk, wheat, barnyard, sour, excellent. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, funky barnyard tart aftertaste. Overall, super fucking solid Gueuze. sunevdj (4143) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2017
