4.6/5  rDev +8.2%

750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

2011 Edition. Best before 28.10.2030. Bottle number 023099.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big and bubbled white head. Quite fizzy with a lot of bubbled coming from the bottom of the glass. Medium retention, practically no lacings and a thin layer that remains forever on the top

S: Very fruity, citrus and flowery. Strong notes of oranges, apples, pears, vinegar, sweet pale malts, flowery hops. A bit metallic. Earthy Lambic yeasts

T: Very fruity upfront. Funky. Notes of oranges, orange zest, grapefruit, vinegar and flowery hops. Dry but very smooth Lambic. Delicious. The only defect is the end that is not very persistent for such a delicious taste

M: Light body. Very fizzy. Medium carbonation. Metallic, hoppy and fruity aftertaste

O: Perfect drinkability. Perfect Lambic

4.01/5  rDev -5.6%

2013 blend. 750 ml bottle #15729. Best before 10/29/2032. Served in a large wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a light golden orange with 2 fingers of a white head that settles to a thin cap. Body is very hazy but translucent, with moderate to high visible carbonation.

Smell: Lots of barnyard funk, hay, green apple, lemon, damp wood, slight vinegar like acidity, and musty basement.

Taste: Medium tart sourness with lots of funk as well as pear, green apple, oak, slight lactic character, mild cheesiness with a slight alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with a very slightly creamy mouthfeel. Medium to high, fine carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: A really nice gueuze. Nothing to go crazy over trying to obtain, but definitely worth a try if you can get it relatively easily.

Did a vertical of the '13, '11 and '09 at Sloshfest 2013. Good times gents.

From a 750 into a mini singer
Review is for the '13 with notes about the other two.

APPEARANCE: Pours a medium sized white head with very good retention. Clear gamboge orange with medium levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a foam cap that leaves some dots of lacing down the glass. Other years are a touch darker but virtually identical.

SMELL: Lemon acidity, tart apples and citrus aromas with a good base of moldy funky aromas. Some barnyard and grassy aromas as well. The other two vintages basically follow suit.

TASTE: Follows the nose well. Tart lemon citrus flavors, green apples, acidity as well, with a bold and lingering finish of lemon tartness, moldy funk and some barnyard as well. Pretty good. The '11 and '09 are softer with slightly less acidity, but these are all pretty similar.

PALATE: Medium body with slightly higher levels of carbonation. Creamy and light on the palate, smooth going down and finishes dry and puckering. Good feel.

OVERALL: This is a solid gueuze that perhaps doesn't get enough credit. What was surprising actually was that all the vintages were relatively similar. The '09 was perhaps the best, but there's no reason to believe that the '11 and '13 won't be there in time. Very consistent. Glad to have been able to try this set at once. Cheers gents!
