Upright, on it's side, just drink it dammit. I chose the latter. The cork exploded out of the bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a lot of carbonation. Tastes of sour apple and oranges with the tartness you would expect from a lambic. Absolutely wonderfull.

4.11/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375ml bottle served in a flute glass.

A: Pours a yellow to orange color. A little bit cloudy. Lots of carbonation coming from the bottom. Forms a big and very bubbled (alive) white head. Fizzy with a great retention but only few lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Smell is quite grainy and fruity. Characteristic Lambic character. Notes of pale fruits like white grapes, apples and peaches. Vinegar. Sour with a metallic and slightly flowery hops in the end

T: Strong notes of fruits and pale malts in upfront. White grapes, apples and peaches. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of Lambic yeasts. In overall, a quite dry taste. Sour and vinegar but not overwhelming. Quite smooth, I would say. Lovely Gueuze

M: Light and carbonated body. Malty, fruity and mainly metallic aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Great Gueuze. Lambic fans will really enjoy it as I did...

3.76/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a murky yellow color with some yeast particles floating around, small foamy white head retains for a while, reducing eventually to a small layer, leaving no lace behind

S- yeasty barnyard funk with some wet hay, apple and pear, musty basement, cardboard, lemon peel, sugared candy

T- sour lactic kick up front with some earthy and woodsy notes, lemon peel tartness continues into a dry finish

M- light body with low carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a somewhat slick finish

O- a nice drinkable gueuze, not on the extreme end like some of the higher rated of the style, but a good intro into the style before trying some of the more flavorful examples
