4.45/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 375ml green bottle (with punt) corked and wired.

Appearance: Bright orange/caramel/amber in colour, not too much unlike a real hard cider. Initially it pours a very large bubbled fizzy foam head. It quickly settles to some foam around the sides of the glass. Carbonation is steady -- large bubbles.

Smell: Cidery, champagne-like, sour, spicy, light pepper notes.

Taste: Fizzy, crisp mouthfeel. Very dry, sharp and tart. You can feel your saliva glands kick-in. Complex fruit flavours follow, but they are not sweet ... more like a Granny Smith apple in flavour with a similar sourness and bite. I can also pick-up apple peel characters, some salt and mineral. No sign of any malt sweetness (per style), but there's some grain notes in the back that blend in with other tannins. Finish is dry, a bit musty.

Notes: A most delicious gueuze, and a fine replacement for any champagne or something to enjoy on a special occasion. I just love beer and its infinite diversity!

4.72/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

An exceptional brew to say the least, big earthy and herbal flavours jump out on to the palate first ... then quickly to the tartness. A nuttiness from middle to end keeps you thinking.

Fruity and tart with a complex dryness, throughly enjoyed this brew with a cheese and bread snack in Brugge.
