rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Bottled. Amber color with rich frothy foam. Dry woody nose with hints of oaky vanilla, grapefruit and gentle phenols. Flavour is dry woody and grapefruity, with notes of goat cheese, gentle phenols, ripe green apple and oak. High acidity here. Musty mouthfeel. Almost puckering after due to the tannins and the dryness. Really complex.

Ktwse (3836) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle @ Moeder Lambic. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with medium tall, thick white head. Aroma of apples, grapes, honey, light citrus, peach, very very complex yet balanced. Taste is initially almost sweet before turning a rich tart sourness. Lingering tart finish. Incredibly dry and crisp, light bodied with fairly soft carbonation. Hands down the best geuze I've had! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle courtesy of mreusch, tasted along with the Zomer. The pour is a haze yellow golden along with a nicely formed white head. Aroma is the house character of 3 Fonteinen, a bit of plastic, and light sour and funk in the back. It all comes to together well, and is quite soft and approachable. The taste is lemon citrus tartness right up front, followed close behind with the funk of the nose, some of the burnt plastic near the end, and the tart sour lemon carries the longish finish. The palate features spritzy champagne like effervenseance. Clean and tart finish, really drinkable stuff. Thanks for sharing these gems Matt.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a hazy and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is a little tart, flowers and some sulfur. The flavor follows the nose with additional sourness. The palate is soft. Overall a really good beer.

Hazy orange of color with a white color. An aroma with sour notes, vinegar and dry white wine. A flavor of green grapes, green strawberries and sour and fresh.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Bottle at home with friends courtesy of Dave. Thanks Man! Poured a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Dust, funk, horse blanket, light citrus, apricot, peach, and citrus. Taste is tart lemon peel, herbal, dust, basement, urine, sour and yeasty. Mouthfeel is medium with fizzy carbonation. Very well-balanced beer and I am glad I got to taste all of these side by side. Definitely the best beer of the seasons.

Kinz (3713) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drake’s 10k courtesy of travlr. Medium amber, low level acidic aroma, lots of horseblanket. Flavor matched. Pretty far to the mellow horseblanket side of things as opposed to the bracing acidity of a Cantillon, but a very nice beer indeed. Somehow had a level of subtlety and sophistication you wouldn’t find in the style.

johnnnniee (3660) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever. I can smell the fruity tartness as soon as I wrangle the cork off of the bottle. Smells of sweet brown sugary malt with a sharp lactic tartness that reminds me of cherries, lemons, and tangerines. A light bit of earthy funk rounds out the nose quite well. The flavor is tart and funky, but not mouth puckering in intensity. More lemons and grapefruit than cherries in the flavor along with a light sweetness and a small acid burn as each sip settles into my gullet. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart kind of mouthfeel going on. Very nice gueze, I’m glad I got the opportunity to try it.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle from Rick.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a nose of crisp, sour leather berries, lemon, and must. Flavor is tart leather raspberry and cherry with a lemon zest in the finish. Tingly and lingering on the tongue. Heck yeah!!!
