1988 bottle at Grote Dorst

White head. Dark burnt orange colorS

Lots of apple cider notes. Sour. Vinegar. Malty, sweet, and tart. Lemon citrus. Very funky.

This was fun to try, but not something I wanted to drink a lot of.

Sampled at THT June tasting. Pale, hazy orange with a thin white head. Vinegar, citrus, sodium bicarbonate. Medium dryness with a low to medium sourness. Not bad.

Bottle. Hazy yellow-gold coloring. Fluffy head. Aroma has some traditional Gueuze aspects. It smells a bit tart and woody. I also get a fair deal of sugar. The flavor is exactly the same. There are some earthy, tart, woody & funky elements but there is also a load of sweetness that slowly overpowers the other flavors.

750ml best by 7/10/13 poured into a tumbler. The brew appears a clear copper color with a fine white cap.

Aroma of minerals and lemony lactic slight touch of cider and sweet grain.

Tastes slightly cider-like, tart and lemony with minerals almost like copper/pennies. A bit of bready grain is noticed but it pales in comparison to the mineral touch.

Light in body with modest carbonation. A bit bitey and acidic as it warms but the perpetual copper/mineral flavor is distracting. Not sure if my experience here is atypical since ive been sitting on this bottle for so long but based on this experience im not quite sure id jump at the chance to buy more.

A great gueuze sadly overlooked by the traditionalists (including me for too long) because of its sweeter cousins (such as the gueuze lambic). Pours a correctly hazy pale ale color with a decent rush of head that retains a scrim of white lace. More lemony and peachy in the nose, as opposed to some of the more cider-like gueuzes, with a gentler whiff of cellar about it -- call it a better-ventilated basement than some other gueuzes. A bit softer and more rounded in the mouth than some, while still bond-dry. Has the classic baby-aspirin lambic taste, to be sure, but a lively and fruity take on it -- again, lemon and grapefruit, passionfruit, all tart stuff. Some occasional jangling metal notes that come and go.

Clear golden color with white head. Strong funky notes on the aroma, also really lemony and fresh. Taste is pretty sour but not overwhelming, with some nice farmhouse notes but also a metallic note on the finish. Body is medium with a quite soft carbonation for a lambic. Overall it's a quite good lambic, the only flaw is the metallic note from the taste.

Labelled: "bouteille tempérée bouchonnée"
At Mort Subité, Brussels.
Sticky webby off white crust over hazy pale orange. 4
Barnyard, flowers, and rotten orange - round. 4.25
Thread of wheat, some salt, goat, grapefruit, hay, slight vinegar, and sweet apple. 3.75
Lemon rind end and mild funk linger.
More towards medium, round, some chew. 3.75

Listed as "sur lie", so I think this was laid down to age (which would explain bigger-than-expected funk.)

The horsiest of the day (so far.) At the same time, plenty of citrus and smooth in the body. Not the most complex, but enough to entertain. 4
