Thanks countbeer for sharing this one! Hazy orange colour with a big white head. Smells like melting plastic and car tire. Tastes sour and fruity. Fizzy carbo, full body.

teorn88 (6196) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 Pours a golden/light amber with a nice white head. Slighly hazy. Aroma is nice and complex: wet wood, strong funkyness with fruitiness and some spiciness. Nice acidic notes, recalling the classic cheesey and horseblankety notes. Taste is rich and probably as complex as it gets, every sip is a different note, stunning. Strong funkyness again and tartness sorrounded by a sort of yogurt-like sweetness. Huge citrus and lemon peel notes. Grassy notes in the background. Some wood and fruit too. Mostly dry finish. Palate is creamy, silky, with good carbonation. Overall, this is probably the best blend I tasted so far. I should do a side by side to award the "best gueuze" award, but this is sublime anyway. So easy to drink, Iím glad I had a whole bottle for myself.

(750ml bottle) clearish deep gold with a fine creamy tan bubbled head. Nose of deep wood char, mossy, cellar, lemon, sour currant, yogurt, herbs, cranberry, earth, an endlessly complex nose. Taste of lemon, lime, citrus zest, currant, cranberry, wet wood, wood char, again very deep and complex. Well carbonated and a fantastic palate linger. One of the best gueuze I have ever had, glad I still have more of this!!

Served at 3 Fonteinen and presented by Armand. Bottled in fine new bottles. The pour leaves a fine hazy orange with a potent fluffy snow white head. A beauty. The aroma is fine and gentle. There are acidic green apples with wet hay and a touch of sulphur. Its both classic and impressively balanced. The taste is nice with a citric and low key acidic impression. A mild palate with a nice acidic biting bitterness....this is the shit. Thumps up..and keep on blending..and brewing

Bottle 750ml. @ RBESG 11 Grand Tasting at Dean Swift, 10 Gainsford Street, London, England SE1 2NE.

[ As my rating # 22000 on ratebeer ]. Unclear medium orange colour with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, barnyard, grapefruit, citrus, tart, sulfur notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic with a long duration, funky, dry. Very nice and very good balanced ;O) Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and fizzy. [20110807]

joes (92) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2011
From bottle (thanks Countbeer). Big white head on a hazy, (golden) yellow beer. Very fruity aroma, a "tender" geuze. Soft sour, very fruity again in the taste. Nice one (and Iím not a big geuze fan!)

Bottle (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting)
Words do not do this justice. Right off, with a big broad stroke, this is a stunning gueuze. Massively fruity retronasals. Crisp and very sharp body. Refreshing, tangy, enlivening, and uplifting. And so moreish. Pretty much a perfect gueuze.

Countbeer (6083) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle: Small white head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell old grains, light smoke, hint of rubber/burned rubber, yeast, fruity, barnyard. Taste is a strange but soft and good mix of old hops, old grains, yeast, fruit, good bitter and sour (of course). Good (old) mix, all nicely, soft and smooth packed. Low carbo, soft tingly mouthfeel, full body and a light watery/creamy texture. Soft, smooth and nice!

Bottle sampled at the South Carolina tasting. I canít believe Iím getting to try this treat again. It pours a cloudy gold with a light frothy white lacing. It gives intense aromas of pear, cider, granny smith apples, brett, an entire farm and is still very sharp and crisp. It is straight sour, sour unlimited. Itís pure. You get the aforementioned fruits and dry yeasts. The funk is alive. This is like Kool and the Gang doing a show in your glass. I applaud this masterpiece. Very nice drinker and prototype for the style.
